If you shared a name with one of the most popular girls on TV, would you run away or right into the fun? I choose to giggle.
This year’s Super Bowl will feature the Seattle Seahawks, the New England Patriots, and a commercial with a TV clip quoted to me at least monthly by someone thinking they’re clever.
“Oh, your name’s like Marcia Brady. Marcia, Marcia, Marcia…” and then they giggle as if I’ve never heard that quip before. Well I have, and I’m going to be hearing it, no doubt, a bunch more in the coming weeks. Now even those too young to remember the original Brady Bunch episode will be reintroduced and (perhaps) delighted.
In the spirit of
bracing myself sharing, here’s a preview and also a place to refer to when you’re searching for a snicker with a dash of nostalgia.
Rather than run from the reference, I’ve embraced it, even taking on @marciamarcia as my twitter handle. The campiness makes the name easy to remember and even I have to admit I was a fan.
For more nostalgia (and less Snicker), below is the original clip. Jan delivers the now-famous line at 1:28. Florence Henderson, of course, plays her part perfectly.
Enjoy. Enjoy. Enjoy.
ps. From the search for all things Marcia Brady, I found we even have our own Cafe Press store. If you want a Marcia-Marcia-Marcia t-shirt, here’s the place!
