Iconic Christmas Commercial Changed

Has anyone seen this yet? The iconic Kisses bells performing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and normally at the end one of the bells sighs in relief. Instead, the new version has a little girl grabbing one of the Kisses interrupting the bells and then we see her dad and her in the kitchen baking cookies together.

 

I don't like it. They shouldn't have changed it!

I like the original , but the new one sounds cute.

I saw it.  It's different, but I don't dislike or hate it.

@Ladybug724 - I haven't seen it, but I don't like it either. Seems like it would upset children to see one of the Kisses end up in a cookie!

 

 

 

I'm still struggling with John Legend's idea to redo "Baby, It's Cold Outside" !  At least the Holly channel on Sirius plays the original too. It's been covered by a lot of different artists- and at least they have not drastically altered the lyrics!

 

 

 

 

The other night I watched a Disney singalong on ABC. Megan Trainor and Brett Eldridge sang this, and the only change I noticed was the line where they mention "cigarette." Even if they hadn't changed that I would have been OK.

 

 

 

 

IMO Legend ruined a classic.  Smiley Mad

Yes! I agree! The original was a simple musical commercial! I liked the simple message. You see too many commercials trying to out do one another.

I haven't seen it yet, but as a handbell ringer, I am offended.

It's a commercial.  And kids can't deal with a Hershey's kiss being cooked or eaten?

I prefer "the classic" too.... its like they dont want to keep any traditions....
