Sara Lee Croissant Commercial starring Gates McFadden

The other day a friend asked me if I remembered a Sara Lee Croissant Commercial starring Gates McFadden and I said no. He said, I bet you have and you just didn’t know who she was in her pre-Star Trek: TNG says. I said he was crazy. So he sent me this video.

He was right.

I started the commercial and was watching it and thought, this does not look familiar at all, then the end comes and she says, “she is french, No?” and it all came rushing back to me. I definitely saw this commercial back in the mid-1980s, but never associated it Dr. Beverly Crusher even after obsessively watching TNG for years.

Does anyone else remember this gem from the eighties?
