Anyone seen the new AFLAC commercial featuring the Rankin-Bass Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer characters? You can find it here. (I couldn't get this to load in my Firefox; YMMV. It did work in IE.)
I've been watching Rudolph since it premiered in 1964, and I think it's cute, but I've hit at least one website while looking for it online that considers it "desecration."
But then I liked the parodies "Raging Rudolph" and "The Reinfather," too.
