Hey Guys, “Name Some More Stuff I Generically Relate To….”

That is one of my favorite lines in this hysterical video, narrated by Sarah Haskins. A clever montage of six dreadful ads, it’s easy to get lost in the absurdity and hilarity of it all, but you would be wise to take note. Her observations of poor marketing to women are dead on.

  1. Very funny.

    Don’t mean to rant here, but the biggest problem with the industry is landfill and energy waste with those stupid individual plastic containers. I can’t begin to guess the amount of water, petroleum and energy that goes into those things, and frankly they don’t get recycled.

  2. Love the spoof.

    Can’t stand yogurt….why on earth would anyone eat something that tasted like that?

  3. As a guy who has digestive problems and who eats Activia regularly, I am wondering why they don’t try to harder to market the product to men. They are missing out on a whole other market.

    I could do an ad for them, wearing my mud caked contractor’s uniform. “After a hard afternoon in the trenches, I need a little energy boost. I like dairy products, but they don’t like me. Activia, it’s good – it’s the only dairy product I can eat that doesn’t give me diarrhea, good.”

  4. I’m male. I like steak. I like bourbon. I like yogurt. (Obviously, not all at the same time.)

    I can’t speak to Activia’s usefulness as I’m too young, but those dessert-flavored yogurts are pretty awesome. I have one per day. (For the record, I don’t get to eat steak once a day.)

    But here’s how you know the marketing has gotten out of hand. I’m more confident buying condoms or diet drinks than I am buying yogurt.
