Caution: Trunk Monkey.
For those of you not fortunate enough to live in the Portland area, please enjoy the best commericals in the world.

I laughed so hard I almost fell off my intern! Excellent post.
Dizzy...when did you qualify for an intern?
The first one was by far the best commercial from
year's Super Bowl. There was a new one for this year that was one of the best again, but it's not yet available online.
Stir-- They sent me one to shut me up about Jim Loy and his secret plans to steal Bob Kerry's stash of Botox...
JOHN Kerry, not Bob. YEESH. This whole Atkins diet and the endless bags of pork rinds are making me a bit hinky.
Dizzy, isn't this just a facile excuse to avoid confronting that poptart addiction?
I can stop with the Pop-Tarts any time I want. ANY TIME I WANT! I just don't want to. Not right now. Not with what is GOING DOWN, MY MAN. Joe Lieberman "Stopped with the Tarts" (2 envelopes a day, I'm told), and he crapped ouy of being PRESIDENT. Heard ol' Howie Dean had a brief dalliance with the Quaker Breakfast Bars!; result: HE's LAGGING BEHIND, MAN! Now this KERRY GUY eats the FROSTING OFF THE TOP and THROWS the CRUST AWAY!!!Look at his face. LOOK at it: those glassy hypoglycemic eyes, the pink-stained red dye nuber two fingers, the complete lack of human emotion-- THIS GUY IS RIDIN' the KELLOGG'S STALLION to ruin...
and once again, diz has had a few cups too much coffee. ;-) i LOVED these ads! particularly the last one with the cop. perfect. thanks for starting my day with a loud laugh! which is second only to a good pop tart. but diz has already eaten all of them. heh.
I may have a FEW choice boxes left, SD. Wanna trade?
If I may venture a non pop-tart related comment...oh what the hell, I'll tie it in. Since many of the pop-tart eschewing candidates are dropping out (wholly related to their illogical stance against pop tarts), but may still have money left over in their campaign war chests (in Dean's case, a peace chest), I think they should buy national airtime so that these Trunk Monkey ads can be seen by as much of the American populace as possible can see good ads...unlike the weak entries during the superbowl (and yes, I include the Levitra ads in that category).
They actually play these in other parts o' the country. I saw one here in LA. So. Freaking. Funny. And I've been avoiding this for as long as I can, but POP TARTS ARE EVIL!! They are FROO-EET of the DEVEEL. There. I said it.
Except the apple ones.
Kimberly; I can smell the Instant Breakfast through the monitor. Please call your case-worker back! Please!
Trac-- (careful-- the apple ones, like the short-lived Szechuan Morning Froot-Tingly Torii, can often trigger what the DSM-IV calls" BPR, transitory mal" or "Transitional Breakfast Pastry Rage.")...
D'oh! I didn't know it was so obvious ;)
Two words. Breakfast Burritos. I've heard the Trunk Monkey commercial campaign is being sold to local advertisers across the country. Any trunk monkey sightings other than the land of Starbucks/Boeing/Microsoft?
Two different words: Doomed Buddha. I think I've seen the commercial for Mr. Wendell's up in Spokane Wash. Wouldn't swear to it mind you.
Wendell: I was going to name my first-born either Tony or Jemima, but after you said two of the most bee-yoo-tiful words in English ("Breakfast Burritos") I promise to name one of their future kitties "Wendell".
"the land of Starbucks/Boeing/Microsoft?"
Oooooh. That hurt. I believe your geography is askew, sir. Not to be snarky but Portland is in large ways antithetical to Seattle and its dysfunction. One is best to think of Portland as the pure filtered essence of the best parts Bay Area, Seattle, and New York. /end xenophobic rant
Sorry, Scott. My bad. My very bad. (You're lucky you caught me during a mood swing when I'm feeling very apologetic) Wendell's Fault. All Wendell's Fault. Worse than San Andreas' Fault. I think I'd previously seen a reference to it somewhere else from someone who'd seen it in Seattle (where I heard it may be a "syndicated spot"), and my weakling brain couldn't remember two northwestern cities at once. Portland is the land of Mathowie. BIG difference. (But then, Matt already hates me - maybe that was why I blanked out) Have I explained myself too much?
As an admirier of your past
, I presumed it was an unintentional slight which you have so clearly confirmed. Thank you.
Holy cheese, 23 large of liposuction.
