WHAT’S ON THE MENU: Sure, it’s sentimental as hell, but damned if this new spot doesn’t tug at the emotions. Entitled Frankie’s Holiday, it premiered Thanksgiving Day during NFL football. At least at our house, there may have been a little sniffling going on by the time it ended. Beyond that, it’s a great message presented with some truly cinematic production values. And man, the actor playing “Frankie” sure looks familiar. Anyone know who it is?

From all of us at Gourmet Horror, happy holidays! And stay scary, my friends.
