Dude and Dude: Thanksgiving

“Hey dude!”

“For the last time, dude. I am not a scarecrow!”

“Oh, lighten up, willya? It’s almost Thanksgiving!”

“It is?

“Yeah, dude. You know, fourth Thursday in November? Same time every year?”

“How come all I see are Christmas decorations, then?”

“Look, can I help it if the sellers want Black Friday to come early this year?”

“In this economy? Those people will be lucky if it comes late. In 2010!

“Well, hell, dude, you’ve got to give them credit for giving it the old college try.”

“You’re right, dude. They’re really trying.”

“Of course, dude. Why else do you think their rugby side’s undefeated going into this weekend’s match?”

“Why can’t they have a regular football team like everybody else?”

“Because they’ve got to try harder to survive, dude!”

“Dude, it’s a real trial, figuring out what all this has to do with Thanksgiving.”

“I was hoping to find out what you’re feeling thankful for, dude. Before I realized I was talking to the ghost of Ebeneezer.”

“I never knew him. So you’re giving thanks on this second segment of Merry Thanksgivoween, are you, dude?”

“Yeah, dude, I am.”

“I was hoping, if you were going to be giving stuff out, it’d be a bit more substantial. A Hummer, for instance. I’d love to be given one of those.”

“Sorry, dude, they ain’t makin’ em any more, and I’m fresh out. How about I give you a nice Hawaiian punch, instead?”

“Doesn’t that stuff come in funny colors, dude?”

“So do the stars, dude!”

  1. Great ad. They don’t make ’em like that anymore. I always wondered, what’s that dude wearing on his head, though.

    • I think it’s supposed to be a straw hat, Dawg. Cartoonists of the 1950s had some pretty strange ideas about how to draw things. Must have been the radioactive fallout.

  2. I’m such an Ebeneezer when it comes to Christmas…pffft…and poor Thanksgiving always gets the bums rush stuck between Halloween and Christmas…Love the Hawaiian Punch ad 🙂
