In this weekly Throwback Thursday series, we surface memorable TV advertising spots from days past – ones that made us laugh, inspired us, or sparked an affinity for a brand.
The air is getting cooler, the trees are barren and ready to take on the months of ice and snow, and Thanksgiving is upon us. Thanksgiving is a holiday that many of us look forward to – whether it’s spending time with our loved ones, stuffing our faces with turkey and sides, or washing it all down with a slice of pumpkin pie (and of course, football and Black Friday).
But for those hosting and cooking, it often is preceded by days of cooking preparation, painstakingly preparing timelines of when each dish will go into the oven and nightmares of the many ways that the holiday can go awry. The pies burn to a crisp, you run out of butter and no stores are open on Thanksgiving, or maybe the bird combusts in the oven, sending you to the emergency room.
In this brilliant Jennie-O spot, the turkey brand capitalizes on the struggle of preparing the bird to promote its oven-ready, pre-brined and seasoned turkeys, making light of the holiday that we have all grown to love and appreciate.
And from the team at clypd, we wish you a safe, warm, and happy Thanksgiving!
