Have you seen that Snickers Ad campaign? You’re not yourself when you’re hungry. Here’s my favorite sample:
Well, what I have to tell you is based on a true story, as they say. The conversation went something like this:
“Mrs. Clinton? Are you okay? I just know you’re not being your true self right now. Here, eat this Snickers bar.”
[Sound of wrapper being ripped open and loud chewing and heavy breathing as the Snickers is consumed].
“There, Mrs. Clinton. That ought to bring you back to your real self!”
“OW! DAMN! OW!!! Mrs. Clinton, YOU BIT ME!!!”
“Oh NO! You mean, THIS IS THE REAL YOU???”
“People have to know the truth! I have to tell them!”
“Ow, my hand. It feels like you poisoned me…”
Paid for by the feelings of every single American with a human soul.
