Here's one for Woolworth's Halloween costumes from 1978. I was 2 years old that year; not sure if I would have been wearing a costume or not. Only my mother has the photographic evidence...
I don't know the year of this Dunkin' Donuts commercial, but I remember it being on. I want to eat everyone of these! Control, Aaron... control.
And finally, a great, short Kmart commercial. (I'm a little weirded out that my spell check recognizes "Kmart.") I don't remember if I ever saw this one, either (so many commercials you see, how many really stick?), but it's obviously pretty recent. It's charming as hell, though.
Next week, 2011's final round of Halloween commercials.

I'm just going to come out and say that I found this season very uneven. Not that there isn't some truly great stuff here, but after the tight build-up of the previous season I think there's some loss of focus and momentum here.

My friend Carl is 35 years old today. Just the other day I ran across this picture of us at our Confirmation. I can't even remember when this was... Junior high? Having fun, as always. What I remember most about the day is that I wore sneakers with my fancy clothes, and Carl commenting, half-admonishingly, half-impressed, "You are the King of Casual."
