I was disappointed to find out that I'd been remembering the dialog all wrong for the last twenty years of my life.
Also, this is an outstanding Youtube comment: "I wonder if General Foods had to pull this commercial because it referred to a waiter named "Jean-Luc"? It aired about the time that "Star Trek: the Next Generation" premiered. (The starship captain in what "Star Trek" fans called "TNG" was named "Jean-Luc Picard".)"
And nobody ever decided to have fun with this? For shame, internet!

I remember this and I was born after 1980.
Well somebody get this motherfucker a cookie for managing to successfully observe an ad campaign that was all over the place during his or her formative years.
No one cares what you think, you whippersnapper!
Yeah because being born in 1981 instead of 1980 warrants a mighty fuck you from the OP. May a Persian doctor sew your sister shut.
It does, it really does. I'm sorry my wacky description of a 20 year old commercial on a fucking internet novelty video site offended you on such a deep and personal level.
I wasn't offended by it. But you were. Try some Metamucil.

That coffee was terrible, except to make ice-cream with.
Sophisti-coffee. Because we can't all be white enough to have senior trips to Paris.
You're right, that coffee was weakass.
I kinda liked it. It's like Swiss Miss's ostentatious, slutty sister.

Looking ALL OVER for this. Thank you.

Beavis and Butthead made fun of this, too.
Though if I'm recalling correctly, they called the waiter some jokey version of Jean-Pierre. This was in the early days, before Beavis was legitimately insane and Butthead was his borderline-retarded handler.

THIS BRINGS BACK MEMORIES!

Wait, so that time Tom Servo and Crow had the same dream about the little French cafe and came to that realization when they said "JEAN LUC!" in unison was a reference to this?
I love you, MST3K. Nothing you did was ever not a reference.
Yes. It's even better when you get it, isn't it?
I think there was an interview with Mike Nelson about "the most obscure reference" and it was like "There goes Eddie, he owes me twenty bucks" or something along those lines, because one of the writers legitimately had a friend who owed him twenty bucks.

I used to eat that crap by the spoonful.

Y'know, it occurs to me that in this post-Starbucks world, they don't even SELL decaf anymore.

Do you want a Sanka? (Born before 1940 test)
