Ah Summer, it hasn’t really arrived until Country Time Lemonade commercials have told me that it’s almost over. Those slow, dusty images of laughter in the golden sun lulled me into a false sense of security. I would curl up for a snooze in my mental hammock. Then, that gentle-voiced announcer would BRING THE HAMMER DOWN, announcing there were only 30 days left of summer. Coming from an official sponsor, that really stung.
This is the second reason I hate lemonade. The first involves sitting at the end of a rural driveway waiting for customers. The third involves Tom Collins—the man, not the drink. However, serve me an Arnold Palmer (the drink or the man) and you’ve got a friend for life.
P.S. If you’re confused it’s because I could not find video of this ad anywhere. I just found one with similar images and the same announcer. If you find me video of the ad to which I refer, I will send you a prize. Yes, it absolutely will be a coupon for Country Time Lemonade
