If you're a child of the 80's or 90's you well-remember the phrase, "Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?" The script was simple, self-indulgent and made a mockery of the stuffy image that accompanied the spicy mustard brand.

In an effort to boost sales, Kraft is resurrecting the vintage commercials and debuting their comeback during the Academy Awards show Sunday, February 24. No word yet on whether or not the ad will feature a celebrity guest appearance or a new look for the product, but the return of the town car and British accent are good enough for us.

Will we be watching for this 30 second soundbite of retro advertising genius? But of course!
