Heard a NEW Jello Commercial with an Old Twist

Postby Steve Smith » Wed Aug 05, 2015 4:59 am

While flipping through TV channels just last week I caught the end of a new Jello commercial and at the very end I heard what sounded like the exact recorded end of jack's show during the Jello years ... "J-E-L-L-Ooooo". (I could be wrong but I believe I've heard it enough to recognize) Anyone else see/hear this?
Be Well.

This one? https://youtu.be/PK6XirlPl7Q I wondered if Jell-0 was distancing itself from its Bill Cosby era by dialing further back in time. (Right click the url and select "Open Link in a New Window")
That's funny, Norman Krasna loved that joke.

Wow, cool! They've always used a J-E-L-L-O jingle on and off, so I expected you meant something more like this: https://youtu.be/2spQBL2_1UQ

But the new one is definitively aping the style (and even the audio fidelity) of a 1930s JELL-O program. Very weird and cool. :)

The jingle does not sound like it was lifted from a Jack Benny show, but it is nice to know that the ad team looked back into JELLO history to get it.

The dad in the commercial looks like Jack if you squint... maybe it's just the glasses.
