“Norelco, even our name says Merry Christmas.” Eh?

Nothing says retro like a Christmas commercial using stop-motion animation. I totally dig Santa riding an electric razor through the snow, but can someone tell me what the heck do they mean by the very last sentence in the commercial??

    I think the best christmas commercials ever are as follows:
    1. Grandma’s magic pine cone coca cola commercial with the rockerfeller center tree.
    2. “Seasons greetings in our souls, yummy fruity pebbles in our bowls”.
    and finally
    3. The “Tis the season for the flakes that dont melt” commercial.

    In the 60’s and 70’s (and probably before that), Norelco would run Christmas commercials with their name changed to “Noëlco,” with the tagline “Even our name says Merry Christmas.” I guess political correctness put a stop to that.
