12 Days of Christmas Watching 2022 Day 5: Be careful out there. Santa's watching!

We are going back to the world of commercials today. Hey, that's television, too! Here are a pair of ads posted by Canadian YouTube account bmuz.

First up, a spot for retail chain Zellers that may remind you of a certain Batty-winning television program:

Does the guy in that ad remind you of a certain Genius-award-winning actor? Everyone is trying, and it's Christmastime. I enjoy this commercial and the way it is shot. Maybe it could be a little grittier, but how many large retail chains want to be associated with "gritty"?

Next up, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback with a seasonal Isotoner ad. These commercials were ubiquitous at the time, but the holiday variant is a nice watch:

Marino was one of the highest-paid guys in the league. Were Istoners really expensive? You know what, let's not go there. It's the thought that counts, and with the slogan, "Take care of the hands that take care of you," Marino indicates what is really on his mind: Making sure his offensive lineman keep his butt off the turf.
