What's with the Stop-Action Christmas ads?

One thing sitcoms, TV commercials, parody shows and Robot Chicken have loved to remind us about is those old 60's Christmas stop-action animated specials. But this year I feel a heavy onslaught through the commercials. There are just two but after repeating so much, it is annoying. What is funny is that these two... Alltell commercial with Santa and the four 'dorks' and Mac vs. PC commercial, it is cheaper to just shoot the actors but what is strange they actually went through the trouble of having an animation company sculpt the actors' likenesses and make these commercials. They aren't bad but it is just a bit weird.
