This commercial does not make me want to buy their products.

I know everyone is looking for ways to make their products more appealing/memorable but I don't think this was the way to go.

It doesn't make me want to run out and buy green giant vegetables. It has the opposite effect.

Kind of like that guy advertising dressing and he shirt burns off. Seriously I am a red blooded female and while he is quite nice looking. It doesn't make me want to go out and buy Wish Bone. Or whatever brand he is advertising.

I'm sure this would hit the target audience.

Well.... I don't think it's an ad they intend to show on tv. Personally, I thought it was funny. Appears to be a "take off" on the show Cheaters. Which IS shown on tv, and I'm willing to bet a lot of adults watch that show with their little kids in the room.

I think the ad got the point across-- it's not "cheating" on your diet to eat a lot of vegetables.

Apparently Green Giant understands that people still need to be coaxed to eat more vegetables, they just don't "satisfy" the way other kinds of food do.................nagging and constantly yakking and writing about it doesn't work as well.

That was interesting

Commercials are getting racy and I think it is unnecessary

As an adult ...I thought this was amusing....but....I don't have kids.

What ad man thought this would be a good idea?
They even have a four letter word bleeped out
