Bringing America's favorite bull terrier back for the Super Bowl isn't a coincidence. Turns out it's the 30th anniversary of his first ad that debuted during the big game in '87. And compared to the older commercials, this A Christmas Carol-themed oddity has a decidedly modern sense of humor. We're saying the new one's funny and the old ones are strange. Regardless, it's good to see our old pal Spuds back in the limelight. May he live forever. Or, you know, just not be an apparition the next time he's in a commercial.
