This ad features a little kid soccer game. The coach says, "Remember kids, if we win, we all get (some kind) of sundaes at Baskin-Robbins." (Would anybody really say all that?) Then, this mom let's out a war-like bloodcurdling yell, kicks the soccer ball, and smugly says to a little boy, "IN YOUR FACE!!" I can't even really put into words what I'm trying to say, so: Feel free to rant about this ad, now. ErmmGeek

If physcopaths like her are at Baskin Robbins, I'm going to Coldstone. She's a f**king nutcase.

I hate this commercial. It isn't funny, it's stupid and mean spirited. I wish the mom of the little boy would come over and pile drive that witch into some cement.

I agree with yall! It's beyond migrain-inducing,and it plays 5-10 times during some shows!  I've been to Baskin-Robbins,and it ain't all that great.  Disapprove
I don't push the envelope,I lick it.

Go to Coldstone anyway. You will have a spontaneous orgasm upon first taste of their ice cream.

They have a few of these commercials.  In one, a mother tells her filthy son that if he washes up, she'll take him to Baskin Robbins.  So, the father turns a hose on the kid and washes him down.  Dad wants ice cream, too!!
 
Then, there's the one in which a mother arrives to pick up the kids from Grandma's house.  She tells them that, if Grandma says they were good, she'll take them to Baskin-Robbins.  But Grandma's house was obviously trashed by the kids.  Nevertheless, Grandma's so excited about the thought of an ice cream cone that she insists they were angels.  Here, she's got hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of repairs and clean-up to make in her home, but an ice cream cone makes it all better.
 
Very annoying series of ads.

Put a dollar in their jar and watch the pained look of horror in their eyes when they know that they HAVE to sing some weird ice cream themed rendition of Great Balls of Fire.

It's like a cruel magic trick.

Same with playing Garth Brooks, "friends in low places" on the juke box at a hick bar. Such power in a dollar bill.

I don't remember seeing the soccer mom one, but I have seen the ones Thor mentions. Can't mom take one look at Grandma's place and tell her kids were nasty little snots? You usually tell someone before hand if they're good they get something, not after the fact.

I do agree... Coldstone > Baskin Robbins

Mom's in denial.  Her little angels would never have trashed Grandma's place.  Musta been gremlins.

Coldstone's really good.  
 
However, maybe it was just a bad batch, but I swear that mint tasted exactly like old school Crest. Dead   I wanted mint chip with M&Ms, not Aim.....blecch!

Old school crest. Man I hated that stuff. It was amazingly green. My brother told me that McDonald's Shamrock Shakes were made from spit up crest.

I was so mad.

I was actually surprised to find out Baskin-Robbins was stilla round. Last time I was ever in one was when I was 8 and it was because I wanted to get me one of those sundaes served in the little football helmets.

I used to go to Cold Stone to be able to get mint ice cream without anything in it.  I don't like a whole lotta stuff in ice cream, and you can't get mint ice cream without chocolate chips in grocery stores.

I love shamrock shakes!  I don't know a kid that will drink one, and I've tried on numerous friends' children as well as my own.  It must be an age thing, kind of like how old people like to drink Sanka (blech).
 
It should be noted that I'm "OK" with old-school Crest, too.  I wouldn't want a shake made out of it, though.
 
BTW Baskin Robbins' are awful.  I've never been in one that is even remotely clean.

FOOTBALL HELMET BOWLS! Wow is that memory lane there?
I was part of the Birthday Club. I hardly ever redeemed my free cone but I got a post card from them clear up to my 14th birthday! Somehow, they found me when I moved from California to Washington state.
It was spooky.

I love Shamrock Shakes too, but have you ever gotten one with TOO much mint flavor? I'm pretty sure the shakes come pre mixed, but I got an awful Shamrock Shake 2 years ago that did in fact taste like toothpaste. Maybe the machine was almost empty?

Remember when Grimace's Irish uncle  would come to usher in the coming Shamrock Shakes?

His name was Uncle O'Grimacey, he was green and wore a little hat.

I think youre all reading waaaaay too much into this one. If the roles were reversed and the kid was yelling in the moms face youde all think it was funny.  But yet no one complains about a lunchables commercial in which the mom looks like villain for sending her kids off to school with a healthy lunch, then a hero when she lets him have a disgusting lunchables... which we all know must be extremely healthy...
 
Btw... enjoy your preservative laden frozen treats.... i mean, ice cream and milk shakes. Dont even think about trying to make it yourself.

I would think the kid was a brat for screaming at an adult.
And I don't exactly know how to make a milkshake myself.
I have yet to get my Magic Bullet up and running.
And how do you make ice cream youself?
Are you implying I buy a hand crank, milk, salt, and spend my Saturday trying to make one bowl of ice cream?
