Box Says Shaddap

Tonight a Cheerios commercial came on the tube. I am very skeptical about the health claims they make and apparently so is the United States government because they called them on the carpet about some unsubstantiated claim they made not too long ago. I don't remember exactly what it was, but personally I find it hard to believe that this cereal is as healthy as it claims to be.

Watching that Cheerios commercial (this one featured the product in various colors; I don't remember which particular kind it was) reminded me that they make my absolute LEAST favorite commercial, perhaps of ALL TIME!

Here it is:




Argh, I can't stand the commercial and I can't stand that woman and can't stand that wimpy man (I use the expression loosely) in there!! I find nothing whatsoever that is worthwhile about the whole thing. I'm sure they intended it to be funny or maybe merely amusing but that woman is simply irritating. And that husband.. hey, stand up and be a man! What a doormat!!

I suggest that wimpasaurus take a lesson from this guy:




Now I know some of you are going to tactfully suggest that perhaps I should seek anger management classes. Haha, for some reason that Cheerios commercial carries just that exact combination of everything that gets on my nerves terribly - the way they look, the way they act, the things they say.. bingo! NO man or woman should EVER act like either of these two major annoyances!

So what do you think?

I hate the wussy on this cereal commercial even more.

Tough call on being the man. I did that once and regretted it for years and still wonder how my life's path and that of my first love has been altered. Right now I'm somewhere between Cagney and the wuss.
