About

Pepperidge Farm Remembers is an image macro series based on a tagline used in an advertisement for the commercial bakery Pepperidge Farm. The series features a still-shot from a parody of the commercial as seen in the animated television series Family Guy and captions reminiscing about outdated relics and practices from the past decades.

Origin

In the early 1980s, Pepperidge Farm began airing a commercial featuring an elderly man reminiscing about raisin bread that his grandmother used to make with the tagline “Pepperidge Farm remembers” (shown below, left). Online interest in the commercial resurged more than a decade later with a Family Guy parody in Season 5 Episode 3 “Hell Comes to Quahod,” in which an old man blackmails the audience into buying Milano cookies. The episode was originally aired on September 24th, 2006.




On June 4th, 2012, Redditor redherpbluederp submitted a post to the /r/funny[6] subreddit titled “God dammit, YouTube commentator!”, which included a screenshot of a YouTube comment referencing the Pepperidge Farm commercial (shown below). Within four months, the post received over 12,725 up votes and 190 comments.
