The holidays are ready for full-swing and the season always brings me back to my favorite television commercials.

The Hess truck spots, Coca Cola and Budweiser are some of my favorite national spots.  Locally, about 10 years ago we produced a spot for Joette's Gifts in New Hartford and it will always be one of my favorites.

Joette plays herself and Utica resident Mike Lynch played Santa Claus.
