Commercials that make you go, hmmmm...

Some advertisements crack me up, like the "Baby Come Back" mop commercials. And some commercials just keep me on my toes when little eyes and ears are close by...

Carter: mommy, look how big that hamburger is!

Me: uh, yeah it's pretty messy

Carter: I think she needs a napkin...

Me: you're right buddy

Carter: I think Daddy would like that hamburger

Me: I think everyone's daddy would like a bite of that hamburger

And how about this one?

I really can't stand the cartoon SpongeBob, even though he's really not the problem - it's his foul sidekicks on the program that enjoy calling people 'stupid' and using bodily functions to get laughs. I'm not a prude, but I do care that my kids don't think it's OK to call someone stupid or burp so loud that the neighbor's house shakes... but I'm digressing. So here's another inappropriate commercial luring kids to Burger King toys in their Kid's Meals... geez

Carter: Mommy, why do they have books in their pants?

Me: So they can sit up higher at the table when they eat their Burger King

Carter: Mommy!! (laughter) They're already grown ups, they can reach the table!

Me: Crazy girls!

(The song used in the commercial is a spoof of the 1990's song "I Like Big Butts" by artist Sir Mixalot)

Original lyrics are:
I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can't deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face... etc....

I am just thankful that he has never seen THIS commercial.... wow. If you are offended easily, don't watch this one! haha... it's an ad for a woman's razor.

And for those that blush at just the mere thought of a condom ad, whatever you do, don't go to YouTube and type in a search for "Durex commercial"... just sayin'

I have to say you picked 3 great ones, and I had to search out the condom one. We must be in the ozone up her, none of those in Boston!
