If you grew up in the early 1990′s (and even late 1980′s), there was no way you missed ABC’s ‘TGIF’, headlined by sitcom Full House.
The television show which featured three men – Danny Tanner, Uncle Jesse and Uncle Joey taking care of four female children rose to fame and became one of the most popular sitcoms in television history, running for eight seasons before the plug was eventually pulled.
The show can be found in syndicated reruns on a handful of networks to this day and hoping to capitalize off that success is Dannon who has reunited some of the cast for a Super Bowl Commercial.
Oikos, Dannon’s Greek yogurt already employs ‘Uncle Jesse’ (better known as John Stamos) as spokesman but for the big game they wanted to go above and beyond, bringing in both Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) and Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) for the spot.
Certainly not nearly as funny as it could have been, but it worked for pure nostalgic reasons. Shame they couldn’t get a few more members of the cast to join in as well or re-create a set similar to that of the show.
