    That is a good one! I am completely nostalgic about the Christmas Coke commercial from the 80s with the group of people singing "I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony..." You can fill in the rest...

    I found the version I was thinking of on YouTube by searching "Buy The World a Coke 1984 Christmas version"!!

    All time favorite Christmas commercial is the one for Folgers coffee with Peter coming home and waking the parents up by brewing the coffee for them. Makes me weepy.

    It's been around forever, but it's still one of my favorites, too.

    While I, too, am looking forward to the Christmas commercials tugging at my heart and tear ducts, I've been finding enjoyment in the Microsoft/Apple commercials war. First the Apple commercials where the Apple guy (young, good looking, clean cut, casual work day clothes) and MS guy (schlubby with an ill fitting old fashion suit)go mano a mano and Apple wins by point of irony...then MS upped the ante by featuring Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld in two long commercials. Then in one of their latest salvos uses the actor playing the MS guy in the Apple commercials as one of the "faces with a story" in their new set. Of course, the actor playing the MS guy is still in the Apple commercials - one of the latest of which features MS paying more money to make commercials than to fix Vista.

    Fun.

    I enjoy the Apple/PC commercials too! Especially after my son told me that one of them (the "I'm a *whatever* and I'm a PC" one) was actually done on a Mac!

    My favorite Christmas commercial was the old Norelco razor one with the elf sledding on the electric razor.

    Is this the one? It's Santa, not an elf.
