Reader Searchers For Long Lost Mentos Commercial
In the interest of serving the needs of our readers, we'd like to enlist the help of all of you to help find a Mentos commercial a girl was in 13 years ago who was never able to view herself in the spot. Here's the story from Adrants reader Brian Sack:
"Many years ago, during the extremely awkward-yet-memorable Mentos campaign there was one spot in particular called "The Car Movers" wherein a young lady has her car boxed in by an executive meanie. She eats a Mentos, and four burly guys in overalls move her car for her. All is well.
Just as many years ago, I wrote a facetious piece comparing that commercial with the Bolshevik revolution of 1917.
Well, that young lady found the piece and just emailed me. She lives in South Africa, where the spot was shot, and she's never seen her cult classic commercial. She's spent THIRTEEN YEARS trying to find a copy, poor girl. Or woman now.
I have made it my mission to find her that spot as she's almost like a celebrity to me, and I can also relate to trying to track down a copy of a TV spot, though not for 13 years.
If you have any leads, I'd love you in the thankful way."
Have a heart. Help a girl out.
