Remember This?: Alyson Hannigan’s Adorable Mylanta Commercial

Before she gained fame on How I Met Your Mother, Buffy, and American Pie, Alyson Hannigan was a sweetly over-concerned teen with apparent allergies who was terrified that her dad might be getting an ulcer. I actually remember this commercial because it made me feel bad that I was so busy writing notes (remember notes?) to boys in class that my father’s stomach health or “thing about doctors” would never have entered my consciousness. This commercial is old in both the actual and internet sense, but it’s going around, and it’s really cute.

She can hardly keep a straight face. Probably because it wasn’t realistic for a kid her age to care about her dad’s heartburn even way back in the Clueless-era ’90s.
