For Small Business Saturday. Went home and shared a turkey with a family member (tiny gathering). This played over and over on TV, with this somber piano and female singer's crappy rendition of 'Auld Lang Syne.' Should old acquiantance be forgot...YES! Good god almighty can 2020 just END? AngryAngryAngry

I agree with the "Should old acquaintance be forgot" part of the song at least. I don't think this commercial is all that bad compared to some of the other ones released this year.

Am Ex doesn't care where you use their card.  They just want all of that juicy interest they will get when you can't pay off your balance.  I always associated that song with New Years Eve.


I can't complain but sometimes I still do

One time, Famous Footwear used it to promote back-to school sales.

They probably had a lot of stock footage of doctors, children playing and hanging out with family members, etc. from the months and years before Covid. The somber piano, voiceover and editing were mostly done from home and then distributed to the networks. That's what I'm guessing.
I got political junk mail earlier this year that had disclaimers saying "pictures taken before COVID-19." People smiling and shaking hands with the candidate, no masks. And on Thanksgiving when I visited my mom and saw this commercial, there was also an AT&T Lily ad that said "Commercial filmed safely. Please wear a mask in our stores." As if some people DON'T realize life is not normal right now.

Albeit I hope the terms 'we're all in this togetherrrrrr...' and somber pianos die a much-needed death after this is over! Ugh! Angry
