I know I get on soap boxes about weird things sometimes.
I hate the bad grammar in a lot of pop songs.
I constantly question the through process behind story arcs in TV shows.
And sometimes I can’t get the absurdity of commercials out of my head.
I have a few issues with this commercial.
First, the music is Latin… Cuban to be precise… for a Greek yogurt.
Not that one couldn’t promote the other, but it seems like using some fun Greek music might have been a nice touch.
Unless us american are seen as too stupid to tell the difference.
All-rightly then, moving on.
Check out what happens at 7 seconds into the commercial.
She takes the lid off the yogurt.
She places it… slimy yogurt covered side down on the counter.
And then she gets all sexy eating with her yogurt. Which, I guess we can expect in food comercials… but it still irks me. This is practially a lipstick commercial, see how there was no smudging? I was expecting to see a Muller / Revlon cross over moment….
And after eating her yummy yogurt, she grabs another one off the magically clean counter to take with her.
I wish I lived in Commercial Land… where make up never falters and counters clean themselves.
