Mentos Gum Says To Small Talk It

When you think of Mentos advertising, those classic commercials from the ’90s come to mind. While these new spots aren’t quite on that level, they’re still good for a chuckle. Each involves an already somewhat awkward protagonist placed in an awkward position. One is at a party with “cool” people, and the other has a guy alone with his new girlfriend’s manly dad. In both cases, Mentos Gum helps bring on the small talk. Heh. And that “Who says no to Mentos Gum?” jingle is pretty catchy.

Heineken: Sometimes The Wrong Party Is The Right One

This is a fun one from Heineken, created by Publicis New York. A man shows up to a formal, stuffy-looking party. Except he goes to the wrong apartment and finds a much more raucous and fun shindig. At the end, we see why he went to the wrong place…turns out they were partying so hard that Apartment #9 became Apartment #6. The song is “Surfin’ Bird” by the Ramones. Here’s more about the ad and the “Cheers To The Unexpected” campaign.

Taco Bell Still Thinks You Should Bring A Taco 12 Pack To Parties

Taco Bell is really insistent on this idea. That would make an interesting test: show up and see how your Taco 12 Pack is received. “I”m confident, I’m original, and I’ve got at least 11 friends.” Right…


This funny AT&T commercial has been around since January, but it’s been given new life recently. Much like another amusing AT&T spot, it deals with the potential awkwardness of a slow mobile network. “I like tacos”…haha, love that line. And I think Eric looks like a nice guy, not creepy.
