Campbell Soup’s 1996 ‘A letter home from camp’ commercial

Camping out in a tent in the backyard isn’t quite summer camp, but this mid-’90s Campbell’s Soup commercial showing a kid in his backyard tent writing a letter home to his mom with “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh” does a great job of capturing that rainy day at camp homesickness feeling that is inevitable for even the most fun-loving campers.
