Thanksgiving TV Commercials

Today begins this year's Thanksgiving programming. Turkey Day is just two weeks away, and those weeks will fly by, trust me. Before we begin this year, I want to tell you to check out last year's stuff by using the Thanksgiving label on the right of the blog. I updated those posts yesterday, as there were quite a few dead links, but now they're ready to go. If you ever check out my archives and notice a dead link or missing video, please let me know in the comments and I will correct it as soon as I can. And now, onward to Thanksgiving 2008!

Today I just have a few TV commercials, but they're good ones. This first one is a Carvel ice cream cake spot for Tom the Turkey. If you're familiar with Carvel cakes at all, you know it simply means a picture of a turkey made of icing on one of the same two molds Carvel used for all of their cakes. But I have to admit, their cakes are delicious!

If youv'e ever made Thanksgiving dinner, you know what a pain in the arse it is to thaw a turkey. This commercial for Jennie-O turkeys demonstrates how not to thaw it!

Finally, here is a commercial that wasn't exactly created for Thanksgiving. In fact, it debuted during this year's Super Bowl back in January. Two balloons in the Macy's Thansgiving Day Parade, Underdog and Stewie from Family Guy, battle it out in the New York City sky over a Coke bottle balloon. Who wins out? You may be surprised!

I'll have more Thanksgiving fun in a day or two. See you then!

I've never seen that turkey commercial. My favorite Jennie O is this one
