Halo Top Says “Stop Shoulding Yourself”

Halo Top has garnered a lot of notoriety in recent years for its unconventional advertising. It’s been dystopian and bleak…but it’s also been critically acclaimed. Their “Ice Cream For Adults” campaign was one of my favorites from 2019. Now Halo Top is back with a new agency (Heat) and a new view on life. It’s a body-positive ad featuring the music of Mama Haze. And judging from the input it’s gotten on YouTube, it’s proving to be wildly unpopular. Eesh.

That Chilly Cow Ice Cream Commercial With “Love Hurts”

Indulging in ice cream after a romantic breakup is something that’s commonly portrayed in pop culture, and it’s usually women doing the indulging. So it seems natural that Nazereth’s classic power ballad “Love Hurts” would be the soundtrack to this Chilly Cow commercial where we see people in tears while eating ice cream. But the twist: they’re sad because they’re eating bad light ice cream. Enter Chilly Cow, which markets itself as  the creamiest, lower-calorie, protein-packed ice cream made ultra-filtered milk. Has anyone had Chilly Cow? Is it good?

Halo Top Is Ice Cream For Adults In This Depressingly Hilarious Campaign

I love these commercials from Halo Top Creamery’s first national TV campaign. Although “love is an illusion, and we all die alone.” Haha. That’s the basis of the campaign. Chipper and idealistic young people approach the ice cream truck hoping for a sweet treat. But then the Halo Top man tears down those kids’ hopes with the depressing realities of adult life. From working a job you hate to paying for a mortgage you can’t afford, adult life ain’t all that. And as previously stated love is an illusion, and swiping won’t get you anywhere either. The deadpan delivery of the Halo Top man is just pitch-perfect. Plus, The Bachelor fans might appreciate former contestant Nick Viall in the “Love” spot. This campaign, created by 72andSunny New York, might just be my favorite of the year so far.






Geico Hits The Mother Lode Of Soft Serve Ice Cream

I could probably write a blog just based off Geico commercials. Anyway, in this one, a hard-working oil crew just hit the mother lode. Except this mother lode is much tastier and less valuable…it’s soft serve ice cream, of course. A guy comes by with a wheelbarrow of cones too. And when a rainbow geyser comes spraying out of a derrick, they’re really in good shape….because sprinkles!

Blue Bunny Will Take Your Pants

Here’s a bizarre one. A husband and wife discover that all their pants are gone. Blue Bunny suddenly appears on a pile of pants, says “bye bye britches”, and tells them that they wanted a sundae, but didn’t want to put on pants. Enter a freezer full of Blue Bunny Load’d Sundaes. You don’t even have to put on pants to get them! Blue Bunny did not take Grandma’s pants however…eek. The wife is played by Corsica Wilson…anyone know who the husband and grandma are?

Amazon Prime Now: A Boy Brings A Gift To His Lonely New Neighbor

Being the new kid on the block is tough. I wouldn’t know personally, since I never moved as a kid, but it seems like it would be. In this new Amazon Prime Now spot, a young boy is playing soccer in his yard, when he notices a glum and lonely looking girl sitting in her new yard. They both spy each other, but seem too shy to talk to each other. The boy’s mother notices too, and she just happens to be on Amazon Prime Now. And with the two-hour delivery, he brings her a gift: a big thing of ice cream that’s decked out with lollipops, a toy car, and “welcom” written across the front. Aww. How cute. I’m willing to believe that the ice cream hasn’t even melted at all because of the cuteness. Maybe that’ll be the start of a great friendship. The song is “Little Person” by Jon Brion and sung by Deanne Storey.
