Gremlins Hardee’s Commercial (1984)

A big round of thanks to Vinnie Rattolle over at the Gremlins Wiki for that ad you see up top. Retroist regular Doug had an excellent post concerning Christmas Movies on Thursday. It jogged my memory banks in regards to this set of storybooks and records that Hardee’s sold during the release of Gremlins…which as you know is takes place during the Christmas holiday.

I still have the set of Gremlins book and records somewhere in my house…though it’s been quite a while since I’ve seen them to be honest. I should pull them out and give them a listen tomorrow morning perhaps?

Thanks to Canibaloxide over on YouTube for sharing this commercial on YouTube!
