Huge, Erect Nipples Distract in All Bran Commercial

tall_jan.jpg

Some spots need to be viewed over and over again to be truly appreciated. Others, like this All Bran Honey commercial, need to be viewed over and over again get past staring at the unbelievably gigantic nipples protruding through the shirt of "Tall Jan" ... to truly appreciate what the hell the ad was trying to sell.

Apparently it's a word play on All Bran is delicious versus Tall Jan is malicious. Whether or not the "protrusive" scenario was intended or not, it achieved repeat viewership and what more could a marketer ask for?

What's more disconcerting for me is that this is a European ad portraying what I thought was a uniquely American ad trend: Guys eating cereal in the office.

Seriously - what's the deal with this? Do people actually bring a box of cereal and gallon of milk to the office and then combine the two in a bowl to eat while other co-workers look on? 'Cause I've never seen it in my office.

1. I think you're looking too hard, mate.

2. To the first comment: Get your accents straight. This is Australian, not European.

Hey mate,

I don't care if the ad is from Mongolia. It's annoying and it tells me that the client/agency is trying too hard make it seem like two guys eating cereal in their office cubicle is completely normal and acceptable. I see it fairly often among cereal advertisers here in the states, and now it's popping up in ads from AUSTRALIA.

They pulled it. I should have saved it. Sorry about that.

Yep, still on in Australia, can't see past the great nipples.!! Love erect nipples. Also, I have my cereal at work EVERY weekday so it is quite normal. The more they get you to work, the more your life ends up being work.
