Peter, you're home...again

Argh!!! I can never escape the holiday season without seeing that annoying Folger's Coffee commercial where the college kid comes home and wakes his parents with the delicious aroma of fresh-brewed Folger's Coffee. I just saw it now on MSNBC.

I know I ranted about it last year. Now it's back.

How old is this commercial? It has to be at least 20 years old.

Am I the only one who can't stand this ad? Even when I was a kid I found it overly sappy. I did a quick Google search on the ad to see if I could find a picture from it to use with this post, but instead all I found were people reminiscing about their fond memories of Peter and the Folger's Christmas commercial.

I guess I'm just a Scrooge.

Nice Rant!!! I don't remember this commercial...Probably because I either ignore commercials or flip. But I am drinking folgers right now!!

I have watched so little TV, it is sad. ABC Family has had the 25 days of Christmas and I did see the Burgermeister, Meisterburger one.

I can't say that I have one that I hate or dislike per say. but rehashing 20 year old commercials would be annoying. "New for Christmas... the Nintendo 8 bit gaming system"
