Thanksgiving Dinner - Soup
Usually I wouldn't choose a Campbell's ad as part of the turkey day buffet, but this one struck me both because it features mushroom soup which seems to be the key element of every green bean casserole I've ever eaten and the model for the mother reminds me of a friend. Interesting that the "soup for lunch" includes a grilled cheese sandwich and pudding with whipped cream topping. Kind of defeats the whole soup for lunch thing, doesn't it?
The unstated reason that mother is away in this ad is the war effort. Rosie the riveter meant the kids sometimes were left to fend for themselves. Nice that the kids kept up the stereotypes while mom was away. They always were thoughtful that way.
