Woodchucks Chucking Memories
Other favorites are the US Post Office commercial with the demonic clown toy and the Purina dog food commercial featuring older dogs.
My absolute favorite overall brand commercials are those done by Jack In The Box. Although I never eat at Jack In The Box, for years I've found their commercials pure genius. I especially loved the one where he visits his folks.
You see, when I was a very little girl, my father taught me the woodchuck ditty. And now, whenever I see that commercial, even though the sing-song little poem is not recited, I recite it in my head exactly as my father taught me over fifty years ago.
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.
My father's birthday was in February and it was in February that he passed away eighteen years ago, but I hear his voice every time those woodchucks start chucking that wood.
