The phenomenon began in 1992. It's 2007 and holding strong. Heck, it'll be able to drive legally next year. I'm talking about the 15th anniversary of the Pennsylvania Lottery Christmas commercial. Yes, that cheesy commercial began during the start of the Clinton administration. The internet for nearly everyone wasn't a word yet.
Cell phone? No.
Calling phone numbers and including the area code? No.
O.J.? Still an NBC sports sideline reporter.
Lindsay Lohan? Just 6 years old.
Britney? In the Mickey Mouse Club.
Me? In 8th grade at Holland Junior High.
Anyway, my point is, this commercial has been recycled for 15 years. The fact that the PA Lottery lets this commercial keep on running year after year is comedy gold!
If anyone sees this commercial air this year...please make a comment and let me know!
Here are my two previous blog posts on my investigation into the Pennsylvania Lottery Christmas commercial.

Carol H. saw the commercial today! (see comment) Mark the date down, November 27, 2007! This date should be considered historical.
