What's up?

What's up with all the Rankin & Bass style ad campaigns this year?

There's the FoodTV "Season's Eatings" ad (in which pseudo-claymation FoodTV personalities look really creepy). There's the ABC Family ads featuring Santa and his elves. There's the Alltel guy. There's the one I only half-remember where Santa can't remember his line (it's "Ho! Ho! Ho!")

It's been retro for a while.

There's just so many of them this year...

Are you counting the Mac/PC ad, too?

I'm betting someone made a Rankin&Bass animation module for one of the popular 3D programs last year and it's "too easy" to use.

I think the Rankin & Bass style jumped the shark when I saw the "I'm a PC - I'm a Mac" ad last night. Ick.
