New Ad Resurrects Long Cancelled Classic TV Comedy Series

I love TV nostalgia but I normally hate a lot of TV advertising. But when the two combine, my feelings about the latter soften a bit. A brand new ad has temporarily resurrected an Emmy-Award winning ABC comedy, if only for 30 secs. 

It's for WhatsApp and it brings back several cast members from the classic "Modern Family," which was a favourite of critics and a perennially honoured TV show. Four years later, and some of the actors from that show are back in character for the 30-second pitch. I can only imagine they backed up the Brinks truck to get them to resume their old roles, even if for just a moment. 

But it works - it certainly got my attention, when most ads on TV don't. 

You can see it below.
