It seems to me that television commercials were better in the 1980’s. Perhaps everything seems better when you’re a kid, but as I watch a replay of a holiday commercial from 1982, I can’t help to notice the goose bumps on my arm. E.T. was a very likable alien. To see him walking around in a Santa costume, playing a game on the Atari 2600, brings to mind fond childhood memories of the holidays. It’s a shame that this game almost single-handedly brought down the entire video game industry the following year.
