“What ever happened to predictability? The milk man, the paper boy, evening TV.” If these words mean anything to you, you were alive in the eighties and know of a little show called Full House. You know the one, the sitcom about a single father trying to raise his kids with the help of his brother-in-law and comedian best friend. It was charming, sweet and very quickly became a show that defined the late ’80s/early ’90s sitcom. It also launched the careers of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but that’s a discussion for another day.
One of the show’s former stars, heartthrob John Stamos, has spent the better part of his latter years as a spokesman for Dannon Oikos Yogurt, and still being a heartthrob. A dreamy, dreamy heartthrob. The commercials in question often feature Stamos looking all cool as he sells you a cold treat that will make you awesome. How does any of this relate to Full House, you ask? Well, because of this:
Stamos, in what appears to be a new attempt to sell us some yogurt until… reveal former co-stars Bob Saget and Dave Coulier sitting on the counter in their pajamas. Why are they there? Why is Coulier in a onesie? So many questions!
It would seem, come Super Bowl Sunday, that the cast of our beloved sitcom will reunite for a new commercial. How many more will appear is currently unknown, but hopefully it’s more than just those three. Now, it’d be fun to sit here and mock the idea of another reunion for the sake of product placement, but who doesn’t want to see this? Reunions of actors from pop-culture’s past are all the rage these days, so of course it was only a matter of time before Full House was targeted for exploitation. At least it’s happening with a wink and a nod to how ridiculous the whole situation seems.
Hopefully the teased reunion will be a fun little short we can all reminisce over the Monday following the game. We’ll know for sure on February 2nd.
