Tums Chewy Bites Vs. A Slice Of Pepperoni Pizza At A Skating Rink

Tums has had a number of commercials featuring food fighting the people that just ate them. They’re underratedly funny. In this one, a slice of pepperoni pizza starts whooping a guy’s ass while they’re roller skating. Fortunately, he takes Tums Chewy Bites (which really sound like candy), and soon enough they’re dancing with each other. Huzzah! Also, here’s an amusing one with bacon beating up a guy during a traffic jam.

T-Mobile Shows A Babysitter Who Charges Extra Fees

I chuckled at this T-Mobile spot. She’s perhaps not the most responsible babysitter. She charged $30, but the total was $50 after the fees. There’s a pizza ordering fee…we see the son asleep on a pizza box with half-eaten pizza. Then the dog sitting fee, with the daughter giving the dog a not so flattering cut. Finally the rummage through the closet fee, where the babysitter wears the woman’s high heels and gleefully declares “we’re the same size…in shoes.” I mean who is she, Verizon? Haha. The babysitter is Casimere Jollette. Any idea who the husband and wife are?

Secret Deodorant’s Pre-Date Freakout: Is It Brendan Or Brandon?

I’m torn whether this Secret commercial is amusing or annoying. Maybe it’s both. Brendan and Brandon are quite similar names that I’ve confused before. Has anyone reading done awkward pre-date stuff like this? Hopefully if you did, you didn’t get caught like poor Caitlin, who’s played by a real-life Caitlin, Caitlin Brodnick. If I find out the identity of Brendan/Brandon, I’ll add that info too.

Geico: Running Of The Bulldogs Is Surprising

We all know about the Running of the Bulls, which is currently taking place in Pamplona, Spain. But a Running of the Bulldogs, like in this Geico ad? That would be both surprising and strangely adorable. So much licking.

These Women Really Love SkinnyPop Popcorn

I’ve never had SkinnyPop popcorn. But according to these ads, it’s got some intensely devoted fans. There’s one who goes a bit beyond the standard sneaking snacks into the movie theater. Then there’s the mom whose SkinnyPop craving just can’t wait, even at a stoplight. If I find out the identity of the actresses, I’ll add that info too.

 

Yoplait Says To Mom On

Are you someone who has a “live and let live” philosophy about other people, or are you someone who’s more judgmental? I’d venture to say that most would respond that they’re the “live and let live” type even if they truly aren’t, just because it sounds better. In Yoplait’s new spot from 72andSunny, the yogurt brand leans to the non-judgmental side with the tagline “Mom On.” It’s part of a larger campaign with a plethora of videos on YouTube. The ad shows moms doing activities that some might object to…breastfeeding in public, not breastfeeding, working/not working, and bribing the kids all come up, among other things. The woman drinking “mom’s special juice” (wine) is a hoot. It concludes with a mom touting Yoplait over “cage-free Norwegian help milk” stuff, because her daughter loves it. Taking a shot at pretentious organics…nice. So, Mom On! In case you’re wondering, the double stroller mom is played by Jessica Caesar, and the wine mom is Elizabeth Clare.

Nike: Kevin Durant Wins A Championship, And Silences His Critics

Kevin Durant has always been a favorite of mine, going back to his lone year at the University of Texas. And now, he has a ring (and a Finals MVP to go along with it). While I would have much rather preferred him to win it in Oklahoma City, it’s still cool that he now has a championship. Nike’s post-NBA Finals commercial shows all his critics…first he’s derided as soft and defensively-challenged, then when he moved to the Golden State Warriors, people called him a traitor. But now, he’s a champion, and the critics are silenced. It’s a pretty cool ad, supplemented by Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya.”
