Happy Holidays! As my gift to you, please enjoy these classic Christmas commercials from days gone by:
The Norelco Santa Ad!
Raise your hand if you ever owned one of the appliances mentioned in the ad.
Now, steel yourself for a true Seasonal Classic:
If you're old enough to remember this ad but weren't old enough to consume the merchandise it advertised at the time, you are probably just about my age.
I don't know the year of this next one, but it's so darn cute I had to include it:
Wasn't that- well- sweet?
Ok, who doesn't remember this? It verges on legendary:
I'm including this last one for you Mad Men fans out there:
(No, I'm not old enough to remember this! Hmmph!)
And now we come to the one commercial I couldn't find. Let me describe it:
I think it first starting airing in the 70s. It wasn't an ad for a product; it was a "Season's Greetings" message from one of the major networks that ran about 30 seconds. I believe the network was NBC. It's a cartoon. There's a blank white screen, then a reindeer walks on and kneels down. It sprouts antlers which rapidly blossom into a big, fancy design. If memory serves, Christmas decorations appear on the antlers. Then, when the reindeer gets up and walks away, you hear sleigh bells.
Does anyone else remember this ad? If you do, and you know where I can find it, please leave a link in the comments section. I don't have much to offer you in return, but if you mention your blog or your favorite blog, I promise to give that blog a big shoutout in the next Tuesday or Thursday roundup.
I'd really like to post that ad, if it's out there.
Thanks, and Merry Christmas!!!!!
