The 12 Ads of Christmas #9 - That Special Holiday Lift

by BeckEye from The Pop Eye

Since we're getting closer to Big J's big day (and since I'm filled with Veddermas spirit), I thought I would post an example of a GOOD Christmas ad.

It's a regional ad by restaurant chain Eat 'n Park (home of the famous smiley cookies and best potato soup EVAH), so folks from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio might be the only ones to have seen it...unless you saw it on my blog a couple of years ago. This is my favorite Christmas commercial, and probably one of my favorite commercials, period. It's very short, sweet, and simple, but gets the point across beautifully. And it always, always, ALWAYS chokes me up.

So here it is, my Christmas gift to you: the warm fuzzies. They may not be as good as the potato soup, but they might last longer.

I pronounce it: adorable.

Adorable indeed.

It doesn't choke me up - at least not the way I pay my underage Thai prostitutes to (merry XXX-mas!) - but now I really want some of those smiley cookies.

Awww (big sigh) that was nice.

That was very sweet. I would hire that agency for sure.
