I like the twist on one of these. Typical context in parens:

(I'm always tired in the afternoon.)
*There's a nap for that.*

In the Yale Book of Quotations, I listed 140 advertising slogans that have
"entered the language" or been particularly famous or memorable.  For the
second edition of the YBQ, I am trying to add more such slogans, from 21st
century advertising and marketing.  Examples of the kinds of slogans I am
seeking are (some of these may be from the 20th century):


I'm lovin' it.

McDonald's


So easy a caveman could do it.

GEICO


There's an app for that.

Apple


The most interesting man in the world.

Dos Equis


What happens here, stays here.

Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority


If you see something, say something.

New York MTA


Rethink possible.

AT&T


What's in your wallet?

Capital One


More saving. More doing.

Home Depot


Can you hear me now?

Verizon


All suggestions are welcome.  I would also be grateful for suggestions of
authoritative websites listing award-winning or "best of" 21st-century
advertising/marketing slogans.
