Does that make you want to NOT buy the product or do you find it funny?

Okay Mommas I was watching tv and this commercial just came on were the mom and kids are in the tent and she is telling them this BS about something bad happening to a person if they took a persons cocolate temptation PUDDING. Then dad comes up on the outside of the tent and acts all crazy screaming and crap, causing the little boy to throw mom her pudding he had hid and the kids to run into the house while mom and dad sit and eat pudding and laugh in the tent.

MY ??? is does this make you want to buy their pudding? Or does it tick you off...tell us what your thoughts are.

  • I wouldn't ever do that to my children, but I find the commercial to be kinda funny.

  • Itr turns me off. I am rarely swayed by commercials anyway but it would tend to make me less likely to buy. The WORST to me was that VIVA commercail shaking the soda all over and the mom takes the sink sprayer and sprays the kid. My kids saw that and started laughing. I made it clear that was unacceptable and they were stunned. They thought it was okay 'because it was on TV"

  • I found it funny. My kids are still confused as to why only adults can eat it.

    I agree though about the Viva papertowel commercial. I hated that one. My kids would be toast if they attempted that.

  • I've seen the commercial and it doesn't really influence me either way. If I see the product at the store and it looks tasty and is reasonably priced, I might buy some to try it. But I won't purchase or boycott it based on THIS commercial.

  • There is nothing in the form of advertising that would convince me to buy a product. I'm not easily brainwashed in that way.

  • Neither. I just wouldnt watch the commercial.
