Mmmm Breakfast.

As I have previously stated, I almost always have the TV on in the background when I'm sitting at my computer. Last night, I was reading through the blogroll, and I happen to catch a glimpse of a commercial for a breakfast cereal.

I think it was for a Post brand, that kind of looked like Fruit Full or something like that. Doesn't matter. I'm not sure if the wonderful advertising executive had in mind what I thought of when I watched this, but it certainly made it memorable.

Picture if you will, a low shot close up of the bowl, chock full of fruit breakfast goodness nearly overflowing, and in the background there is a cardboard half-gallon carton of milk resting on the table, open spout pointed in the direction of the bowl. Then the voiceover tagline: "It's so good even the milk can't wait." Closeup shot of the milk carton spout with a runnel of 2% Grade A homogenized spilling out from the point of the spout and running down the side of the carton. Then a long shot showing the entire "complete breakfast" with the line of liquid continuing down the side of the carton, and slicing through the red "L" in the word Milk.

Now I don't know about you, but the only word that properly describes what went through my mind when seeing this was Bukkake. (If you don't know what that word means, I'm sure that a quick Google search will enlighten you.)

The mere thought of a "white viscous liquid" that spurts out of its container in anticipation, made me cringe at the audacity. Although I can't remember the exact product this thing was hawking, I guess the ad did its job. I'll not soon forget this commercial.

Interesting... I actually watched a Burger King commercial that had inuendo in it.. Can't recall what they were actually advertising either.. kind of threw me off...

BS: It was absolutely creepy! I know that I'll never be able to look at a milk carton the same way again. Luckily, I buy full gallons in plastic containers, so I can still drink the stuff.

I wish I watched enough TV so that I had a chance in hell of seeing that commercial.

Anyway, if you find out what the commercial was selling, let me know - or just post a follow-up. Maybe I can view it at the product's web site.

Bukakke. Mheh. Wouldn't that actually require SEVERAL spurting containers of milk? :-)

I just saw that same commercial and found your website on Google b/c I wondered if anyone else thought what I thought... I'm glad to know I'm not a perv! (though I didn't think of Bukkake, I just thought the same thing about the viscous white liquid dribbling in anticipation.)


BTW, it was a commercial for Fruit Harvest Cereal. I don't remember who made it.

Does anyone know where I can DL this commercial? My roommates missed it and I want them to see it.

Sorry partner, I haven't found it "out there" at all. I'd love to steer you, but I just haven't found it. I only sw it one time after this post, and then I promptly forgot the name of the cereal. I guess hit the "google" and good luck.
