A Commercial Break
Generally, I find viewing many of the retro and nostalgia sites on the web amusing and somehow reassuring. I'll have to make an exception for this creepy Jolly Green Giant Commercial which if I had seen it as a child might have left me with some serious nightmares. This was supposed to actually SELL product? I prefer the equally weird, but less scary classic version, with a man painted green, interacting with cartoon dwarfs.
Although the creep fest isn't limited to commercials for canned goods, since this early McDonalds's Commercial is also pretty pretty disturbing, featuring Willard Scott as Ronald. And yet another classic icon The Colonel appears and offers up some KFC with therapeutic qualities.
A few more "retro-links" to restore the warm and fuzzy to nostalgia:
