Old Navy Gets it Right

Take a look outside and see if hell has frozen over.  I can’t believe I’m saying it either, but, Old Navy gets it right when it comes to their commercials.  Holy cow I can’t believe I said that again.

We know, because I’ve told you, that Christmas is a horrible time of year [for TV commercials], and we can’t get away from them.  It’s nice when we get some commercials that actually are good.  Old Navy has a couple of commercials running right now featuring Chevy Chase and cast members of the various Vacation movies he has done over the years.  I couldn’t care less about what Old Navy sells, but I like that they are taking us down the holiday road:

This one has Chevy, Beverly D’Angelo, and Juliette Lewis (from Christmas Vacation).

I guess Johnny Galecki is too good for an Old Navy commercial since he is on Big Bang Theory now huh?

This one has Chevy, D’Angelo, and Lewis and features 137 year old Johnny Mathis.


And my favorite of their commercials, that has most of the kids from the movies:

So the kids in this one: Anthony Michael Hall and Dana Barron from the original Vacation and Jason Lively from European Vacation.

Neither of the kids from Vegas Vacation have showed up in the commercials and of course super-star Johnny Galecki seems to be too good for it.

Dana Hill, from the original Vacation, died in 1996 at the age of 32 from complications of diabetes.

    That is the best part of all the commercials. That they have him in that beret. It’s fantastic.
