I'll Arm Wrestle You For It

Cutesy children in advertising generally rankle me. They belong right up there with any ad that features an animal talking, singing or smiling. I suppose I could turn off the television but then how would I know what to buy or what the weather is?

I wouldn't give the product in this short ad another thought but I would give whoever cast the kid at the end a big fat bonus. Just this once.





Say it with me: Awwwwwwww.

Where are the swimsuit models and ninjas?

I'm not thinking "awwwwww." I'm thinking that I spent thirty seconds watching yet another cute kid commercial.

Don't get me wrong. I like kids. Deep fried, they taste just like chicken.

I'm still trying to get over that last confusing bit about microwaving the kool-aid. I mean, have we really devolved that far as a society? We nuke our goddamned kool-aid now?!!! WTF?

Dale said...

Fran, I'm constantly stupefied, even at my own ability to say Awwwwwww occasionally.

They're in the follow up ad Zombie when the brother puts the smackdown on the kid sister.

Mmm, crispy skin is always the best X. Dell!

I know Patrick! Retarded isn't it? Double you tee eff indeed!

If the commercial doesn't feature a singing dog, I'm not buying the product. (Well, except for lady products because I need them.)

Franki said...

Gawwwwwwd, have u turned softy on us?

SkylersDad said...

I am a fan of any commercial that uses Eye of the Tiger...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

You're getting soft in your old age! That kid is a manipulative koolaid stealer!

Tanya Espanya said...

Girl kid is cute. My kid is cuter.

That is all.

Dale said...

I'd definitely buy tampons if animals were selling them Beckeye!

Wait until my next 'kitten' post Franki, to be followed shortly by my semi annual poke fun at the homeless post.

Skyler's Dad, have you ever heard the musical mashup that was done with a Craig David song Fill Me In and Eye of the Tiger? It's brilliant too.

She's definitely got the criminal element thing down pat Barbara.

For once Tanya, I may have to agree with you.

I've never minded this little girl. This commercial usually makes me laugh, just because of her.

Dale said...

She always gets me too Katrocket. When I grow up, I'm going to marry her.

Melly/Melody/or Mel said...

Dale said...

She's a cutie isn't she Melly? She gets me every time.
