One of a series of bizarre commercials for a wine cooler called Sun Country with Ringo as the spokesperson. Why is a polar bear the mascot for a drink called Sun Country?

Yes, that is quite odd, and no, I can't answer the question about the polar bear. :D

A commercial for Log Cabin maple syrup. Those pancakes sure look good! But wait.... Syrup on pudding?! :shock:
P.S. Do you say 'sir-up' or 'sear-up'? My pronunciation is the latter.

Yes, they do look good (but no, not the pudding). French toast is really my thing, though I rarely eat any this sugary stuff anymore. My pronunciation seems to be about half way between sir and sear, so I suppose I’m a fence straddler. :)

Yeah, I barely eat anything like this anymore. It doesn't taste the same as it used to in my opinion.

Yeah, I've noticed that when you get de-toxed from all that refined sugar, it doesn't taste so good anymore.

What I'm having for dinner. I just learned that you are supposed to eat it backward. I'm not eating it backward! It's the best part. That would be insanity!! I also didn't know stuffed crust had been around for so long.

Also, this is a hilarious commercial that makes me feel old.

Because I remember when PlayStation was new! This is advertising the arrival of not only Crash Bandicoot, but also the console.

I see! :)

Here is an interesting one, (though the quality is poor, unfortunately). It's shocking how much our culture has changed in the last few decades. :o
