Christmas Commercial Wrap-Up

Today I'd like to clear out the last of the Christmas commercials I've stockpiled so I can move on to more full-length Christmas programming. Time's a wastin'!

The most famous Coke commerical (aside from the one starring Mean Joe Green) is probably the one from circa 1970 featuring a multicultural cast singing the jingle "I'd Like To Teach the World to Sing." The one I grew up with, however, was this holiday version from several years later.

Speaking of soft drinks, remember the 7-Up dots? I loved them, and they shine in this fun clip.

Everybody loves Oreo cookies, and Santa is no different!

The late Michael Landon made a series of Kodak commercials in the early '80s. Here is a holiday-themed example.

Does anything embody Christmas better than Fruity Pebbles cereal? Yeah, many things do. But this commercial is as sweet as the cereal.

The person who uploaded this classic clip on YouTube says this is the best McDonald's commerical ever, and it's hard to argue. I dare you not to be moved!

This Herskey's Kiss commercial is still on the air today, and God bless'em for it. One of my absolute favorites!

Finally, this is an old bumper from CBS that I didn't know existed until yesterday, but I already adore it. A rare moment of tranquility on a major US network. Excellently done!

Wow...I believe I remember seeing the CBS holiday house ad. Ca. 1970-73.

It was created by R. O. Blechman, who is apparently a revered illustrator. He has a blog on The Huffington Post.
