Second Thoughts on Frosty The Coalman

When we were little (back in the olden days) our grandparents had a coal furnace. We loved to see the coalman come and send all that coal down the coal chute. In winter it was even better because we could search around the chute and find eyes for our snowmen. Not so sure what kids think these days. Are Frosty’s eyes charcoal briquettes? hmmm

But we digress. Some did not see the humor in the Frosty the Coalman carol. In fact, someone even said:

“This is the most cynical ploy that I’ve ever seen from the industry. It’s worse than Joe Camel selling cigarettes,”

Oh well, so much for that ad campaign. It was pulled. We thought it was cute :)
