Previously, on Christmas in the Commercial Archives…
We watched commercial blocks from the December 15, 1986 NBC airing of Mickey’s Christmas Carol, cried over a McDonald’s commercial, and saw promos for movies and specials that aired that week.
And this week, now ten days before Christmas, we’re going to do the same thing again!
Admit it, you only read the title and started hearing the jingle.
Growing up a New York Yankees fan, a New York television station watcher, and well, being an adult with a love for commercials, I have a particular affinity to anything touches on all of those special components.
So combine Phil Rizzuto with commercials that usually aired on WPIX in the 1980s and the magic of Christmas, and I’m a happy nostalgia geek.
We’re now three weeks from Christmas, which means it is time to open up the commercial archives for a three-part harmony of commercials of years past.
