I remember when Stouffers and the Holidays were inseperable
This hilarious throwback to the glorious 1980s reminds us of the time when every holiday party simply had to include plate after plate of toasted bread topped with cheap cheese, tomato sauce and something that at least looked like pepperoni. I can remember every party being pretty much over as soon as the Stouffer's ran out.
But until it did.....wow, such awesomeness. Big smiles, laughter, and gathering around the piano with friends to sing in between scarfing down flavored toast from the freezer aisle. Everything was so perfect back then. I'm pretty sure President Reagan had a lot to do with it.
As a sidenote- notice that nobody in this ad is texting or taking photos with their phones, because nobody- except the owner of the house- has a phone. Yet, they all seem to be having a good time, despite the fact that they are totally unable to take photos of their chunks of crunchy bread or anything else and where forced to socialize with the people in the room rather than people not in attendance. They couldn't even update their Facebook pages back then!
We were so weird back in the 1980s. Better, but weird.
