Well they just showed “A Charlie Brown Christmas” on ABC and you know what it puts me in the mood for? A York Peppermint Pattie of course. As a consummate watcher of Charlie Brown Specials I can not think of a single airing of this Holiday classic (when it was on CBS) that did not have a commercial for York Peppermint Pattie. Since those days seem to be behind us, I decided to post one of these classic early 80s masterpieces of commerce. Drumroll Please?
I give you …”The York Peppermint Pattie Ski Jump Commercial”:
Just awesome. I remember trying to do that ski jump lean in my living room as a kid. It usually ended with me banging my head on the coffee table. Luckily their were no long term effects. Happy Easter!!
