'Tis the season for heartstring-yanking commercials. Some of them are classics that air year after year. You know the ones: the coffee commercial with the college-aged son home early to surprise the family, Ronald McDonald ice skating on a pond with a bunch of kids... Especially for people of my generation, these ads can evoke as much nostalgia as the actual Christmas specials.
Or eye-rolling dread. Frankly, I'm sick of the coffee kid. But whatever.
For those of us in the Pittsburgh region, it just isn't Christmas until this little classic airs. For those of you from Places Beyond, this commercial for a local restaurant chain has been airing for a gazillion years and damn it, I still get teary-eyed the first time I see it every season.
Happy Holiday season, everyone!
