Summer heat is reaching its zenith and nothing is sweeter during this time of year (or more nostalgic) than having a cold treat on a hot day. In this mid-eighties commercial from Popsicle, a way too cool dad take his son Joey on a summer tour of his hometown. He winds up at the local store where he bought his favorite childhood treat, the authentic Popsicle and he and youngling each have a delicious cherry treat while sitting on a sunny bench in the town square. It is a little corny and I find the guys accent out of whack with the small town environment he grew up in, but otherwise this is a great slice of nostalgia advertising.
