Subject: Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints commercial

Written By: OSusanna on 02/01/07 at 3:50 pm

My brother and I are driven to distraction trying to remember the lyrics of the Have You Hugged Your Kid Today? commercial...

what we remember..

"Have you hugged your kid today?
Did you send him on his way
with Love.  Love.  Love, love, love.

He's a person just like you
He's got feelings too..."

and then we go blank.

Could anybody here help?

Thanks,
OSusanna

I remember those commercials, but I can't remember the lyrics. Try youtube.com

No luck on YouTube, but, thanks.

I think about the pitiful little kid with puppy dog eyes in the commercial asking, "Did I do something wrong?" after a series of bad times in the household.

I think about it before I beat my kids.

Of course, I'm kidding!  :D  This public service announcement has very effectively kept me from beating my kids...and I hug 'em every day.

Mommy, what's for supper? 

Can’t you see that I’m on the phone? Hold it down I just got home. Isn’t it enough that I work all day?
I should have some time to get away.
Dishes, diapers, dirty rags.
Bosses, bills, and nag, nag, nag.

Daddy?

Shut up, kid, you’re in the way.
I’m so mad I could slap your face.

Did I do something wrong?

Have you hugged your kid today? Have you sent him on his way - with love, love love love love.  He's a person just like you, he's got feelings too - So give him love la la la love la love la love la la love la love laaaaa laaa love.

The end of the song was later changed to represent both genders.


Have you hugged your kid today? Have you sent them on their way - with love, love love love love.  They are people just like you, they've got feelings too - So give them love la la la love la love la love la la love la love laaaaa laaa love.

It was a Public Service Announcement (PSA) (commercial) from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Ahhh! I've been obsessing about these lyrics as well! Has anyone found the actual commercial anywhere? I keep telling my sister-in-law about the crazy commercials I saw as a kid... There are others too:

Love to be with you, you're my favorite person.
Favorite person in the whole wide world
Ah ah ah ah
I would do anything for my favorite person
You're my favorite person, you're the person I love.

There's another one about creepy adults touching kids and how kids should tell some other adult they trust. And then the one about kids watching TV while a guy brings in trash to refill it. It's been 20 years and I still can't get these ridiculous tunes out of my head!  ;D

My favorite one(although I'm pretty sure it was from the 70s)featured a man sitting at a desk strewn with paperwork in his home offfice/den.  The voiceover says, "Remember last week you said that next week you'd spend more time with your family?"

The man nods.

VO:  "It's next week."

No music, but a thought-provoking message nonetheless.
