    A few more:

    Dell computers, 2001. This one cracks me up! :D :


    Here's and earlier Dell Christmas commercial, from 2000:


    E.T. video game from Atari, 1982:


    Though not necesarily a Christmas ad, this is for Mr. Microphone (circa 1978). The lively, almost ear-splitting rendition of Deck the Halls at the end of this and other Ronco products is really memorable!:

    Thanks for that little trip down memory lane. The Norelco commercial is such a classic. I also liked the Andre one as well. Never thought I'd miss TV commercials, but there definitely are a few that I do.

    A more recent (and FAR more memorable!) M&M's commercial:


    Fruity & Cocoa Pebbles, 1980's:

    The Mr. Microphone commercial..."Hey, good looking! I'll be back to pick you later." :hilarious:

    I wanted one, but my mom only bought us "quiet" toys.

    When I read the title the first thing that popped into my head was the Norelco Electric Razor commercial with the Santa riding the Electric Razor through the snow. That one is a classic.

    I completely agree with that one. I has become my favorite. I look forward to it every year.

    I also still love the Norelco one.

    I have stated this in the past, but it bears repeating here. I like two that I don't think have existed for the several years, but that used to be standards for the week AFTER Christmas:

    (1) Pizza Hut: "Flaming turkey wings," sung to the tune of "Five gold rings" in "The 12 Days of Christmas." It was hilarious with all the different ways turkey leftovers are served (and thus tiresome, making you want PIZZA!),



    (2) Sears' add that proclaimed, "Everything you wanted, but didn't get for Christmas, is on sale now at Sears!" (In their Everything-You-Wanted-But -Didn't-Get-For-Christmas Sale.)



    Both of those jingles stayed with me for years. Showed the effectiveness of good jingles in marketing.

    The Norelco commercial is a TV classic. I have fond memories of that one. :)

    WOW! :eek: I never imagined anyone replying to a Christmas themed thread on Mother's Day, but thanks anyway! The Fruity Pebbles Christmas commercial is also one of my all-time favorites as well! ;)
