More Commercials

The other day my anonymous buddy posted a comment to my blog post about how much I hate that Cheerios commercial. He said he hated this one even more:




Then he went on to say he did that once and wonders how his life's path would have been different had he chosen the other fork.. well, I don't want to get into his personal life so I'll leave it at that since we all have those turning points in our lives. I have certainly had my share! Too bad we don't have alternate universes that enable us to explore our what-if's.

Sorry, but I completely disagree regarding the commercial. I thought the above Fiber One spot was pretty funny. The characters were likable, even the fire-breathing big mama. It was played strictly for laughs and that's fine with me. I wouldn't object to watching it. But that Cheerios commercial.. that one really hits a nerve with me. I don't know what they were trying to accomplish. Was it supposed to be funny? If so, they failed miserably. If it was supposed to make you remember the name Cheerios because you hated it so much, then they were wildly successful.

You know what it is.. those two in the commercial are just totally unlovable. Do you know anyone who really acts like that??? They are trying to be oh so hip with their clever banter but it heads totally down the drain. It isn't clever, it isn't funny, it isn't even worth writing about so I had better stop before I end up heaving a TV through the wall, haha..
