This ad from the late eighties for Twinkies isn’t aimed at children, which is why Twinkie the Kid is nowhere to be found, but is instead tries to play on nostalgia for a childhood favorite. Judith Light of “Who’s the Boss?” fame, does a great job talking about her first Twinkie, but the real star of the commercial is the art department who put together that Twinkie she is tasting. In all my years I don’t think I have ever seen one that looked that creamy.
