|"Gimme a pizza with nothin'" vintage commercial
for Polly-O String Cheese.
The other day my husband was peeling apart a string cheese. We are regular consumers of low-fat string cheese sticks because they're the perfect quick snack.
I'm a rebel when it comes to devouring a string cheese -- I nibble or bite into it. My husband, on the other hand, slowly peels back each piece the way string cheese was meant to be eaten. Whenever I see him do this, I tease him. He's not much of a jokester, but on this particular occasion he put on his best New York accent and said, "Hey, gimme a pizza with NOTHIN'" (hold the sauce, hold the crust) and I quickly caught on and replied in a gruff old man voice, "NUTHIN?"
I had completely forgotten about this gem of a 1980s commercial for Polly-O String Cheese. If you're about 34+ you may remember it, if not, click the YouTube video below and view the vintage Polly-O string cheese commercial. It's hard to believe we were just kids when string cheese first came out.
Two Polly-O String Cheese trivia tidbits for ya:
1. I went to school with a relative of the Polly-O String Cheese family on Long Island, blogged about her haunted house a while back here and here.
2. I learned that the kid in this video is named Vinny Caravella, founder of this video game website called GiantBomb.com.
