I don't think this commercial has been on the air for at least 10 years, but its my all time favorite --and this essentially blows the theory that if you remember the commercial, you'll remember the product, because I actually don't. It was for some kind of sauce or seasoning that you put on chicken, fish and meat. I do know it was not "Chicken Tonight." I hated those commercials.
Anyway, goes like this:
A boring family is sitting around a dining room table, waiting for Mom to come out with dinner. She comes out with meatloaf. Everyone sighs with resignation at another tedious meatloaf dinner. Then, however, Mom discovers "Yummy Stuff You Put On Food" or whatever it is, and suddenly meatloaf is exciting again!
This in and of itself is not funny. However, what's funny is the Dad's delivery. When the new meatloaf comes out, he goes "Meat-looaaaf!" and gets all bug eyed and kind of licks his lips randily, as if Mom just brought the meatloaf out naked or something. The same thing with "Chick-eeeeeeen!"
At the end of the commercial, it's just a close up on the Dad's face, and he goes, "Fl-OWN-der!"
I can't express to you why I found this commercial so funny, but at the time it was running I was waiting tables, and me and a couple of other waitresses would walk by each other and go "Fl-OWN-der!" and crack up.
PLEASE if anyone remembers this commercial OR the name of the product, let me know! Gracias!
