Coca Cola Christmas Commercial: Polar Bears and PenguinsvThis brilliantly beautiful 2008 Coca Cola Christmas polar bears commercial is adorable. Because it's Christmas, and polar bears and penguins should share Coca Cola and party together during the holidays. Would this cute Christmas gathering ever really happen? No. Why? Because polar bears live in the North Pole and penguins live in the South Pole. Still, nice idea.

Hallmark Christmas Commercial: Tom Comes Homev
Johnny: "I was ten years old that Christmas. That was the time my brother Tom was working in Europe. We hadn't seen him for over a year. Every Christmas Tom and I used to sing together for the family. I sure missed him."

Johnny: "From Tom? Tommy! Mom, it's Tommy! Dad, Tom's coming for Christmas! He's coming here!" (excitedly runs around with the card from Tommy) "That was the year it really snowed. I waited for Tom, and I waited. Aunt Nelle and the rest of the family barely made it through. No sign of Tom. That was the longest day I can remember. Dinner came, and it went. Still no Tom." (Kids looking at presents, as Johnny looks out the window)
Dad: "Tom will get here."
Johnny: "I sure hope so." (Gets up to sing) "I felt very lonely, standing there by myself." (Starts to sing "O' Holy Night" by himself, as Tommy sneaks in the front door, and then joins him)

Coca Cola Christmas Commercialv
"I'd like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony..."
Let's hit the way-back button and take a look at one of Coke's most iconic commercials ever: The Christmas hilltop commercial. Hundreds of hippies singing in "perfect harmony" -- doesn't get more feel-good than that. This spot should be brought back, immediately, for this Christmas and all future Christmases until the end of time.

Santa's Norelco ChristmasvIn this vintage 1970s Norelco Christmas commercial, Santa Claus has ditched his usual sleigh and reindeer in favor of sliding around on the top of a Norelco rotary razor. Because who needs Rudolph when you can have "No gotchas!" right?

Narrator: "Oh oh oh, The night before Christmas and Oreo cookies, waiting for a special guest..."

Eating all the luscious chocolate, licking all the creamy middles, dunking all the crunchy cookies like he did when he was little. It's so hard to hide the kid inside with Christmas, and O-R-E-O." (Santa dashes up the chimney, just as the little boy wakes up to see an empty cookie plate)
