Sara Lee: The Next Generation
Today (Jan. 30) is National Croissant Day, a day to celebrate everyone’s favorite flaky, buttery, crescent-shaped pastry.
This 1984 Sara Lee croissant commercial stars Gates McFadden, who would one day play Dr. Beverly Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation. The future USS Enterprise physician puts on a French accent and insists that only the French can make a true croissant. After tasting it, she concludes, “This Sara Lee — she is French, non?”
