On the Third Day of Christmas…
In the days leading up to Christmas, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite Christmas commercials here at the WD.
The Folgers coffee commercial, “Peter Comes Home for Christmas,” was selected by Vice President/Creative Director Steve Hanthorn and Assistant Media Buyer/Planner Mallory Mauser.
Here’s why Steve enjoys the commercial: “This is a special spot to me, because it never fails to remind me of the happy feeling I always had when coming home to my folks at Christmas.
In it, a young college student named “Peter” comes home early from college to surprise his family, and wakes up the house by making coffee. Made years ago, it has been run on and off for a long time. It’s just a beautifully shot and very well produced depiction of a typical American home at Christmas with a sentimental, heart warming story – “I’ll be home for Christmas.””
