Grey Poupon: The Lost Footage


I have very fond memories of TV commercials from my childhood. After all, I grew up in the last era before cable TV took over, and networks were the only outlet for advertisers to get their message out to their prospective customers. If you talk to anybody who watched TV during the 80s they would instantly know sayings like "Where's the Beef?", "Pardon me, are those Bugle Boy jeans your wearing?" and "Mikey Likes It!!" from the commercials they appeared in. But one of the most well known catch line and commercials has to be the two proper English gentleman being driven in Rolls Royce's through the countryside when one asks the other "Pardon me, do you have any Grey Poupon?"Who doesn't know that one? Well, last night during the Oscars they aired a very cool update on that commercial, called 'Grey Poupon: The Lost Footage'. You can't just abscond with a man's jar of Grey Poupon and not expect repercussions... LOL. The new commercial is amazing, and it holds true to the spirit of the old commercial while poking fun at itself just enough to make us laugh. Well done Grey Poupon... well done indeed! See the commercial after the jump...

Here is the original:



And now the new one:
