It's a daytime drama! It's a cereal commercial! It's a daytime drama! It's a cereal commercial!
So I'm sitting here in front of my Toshiba Satellite Laptop Computer eating a Snickers Bar (Snickers Really Satisfies and besides, You're Not Yourself When You're Hungry) when I happen across this clip from a soap opera I've never actually seen in real life, really I haven't so stop suggesting that I'm a regular, ok? I haven't watched a soap on a regular basis since they pulled Natalie (or was it her evil twin?) out of that well on All My Children back in the early-90s. And I didn't even watch that show very often, so shut up.
Anyway, the very subtle Cheerios commercial embedded in this clip barely registered on the consciousness, don't you think? I mean, I sure wasn't hungry for the Toasted Whole Grain Oats after I saw it, though I did find myself craving a cup of coffee when it was over- maybe the wrong subliminal message came through? Or maybe I just don't have any Cheerios in the house?
I'll ponder it as I gulp down another Diet Coke (Just for the Taste of It) and channel-surfing my Verizon Fios menu (when you get Fios, that's when you Get It.) And try to remember what I thought was so compelling about this--- umm, television drama clip, and why I thought it belonged in a blog about commercials. Maybe it's the blonde. She is awfully cute. I wonder what her favorite cereal is?
