I know I'm tired of these talking M&M's, it's run its course. Unfortunately, M&M's aren't going anywhere and these ads are more than likely going to be around FOREVER! DeadDeadDead

Substitute "tampons" for "M&M's" and this ad would get really funny.... LOL

I was just about to begin a thread on the new Pretzel "stuffed" M&M's.  There are 2 male talking M&M's and the ad's all about apparant "homophobia" regarding the one pretzel not too keen about being "stuffed with a large pretzel".  Then the other M&M --who sounds suspiciously like Regis Philbin! says something like "let's get this over with, I'm not too crazy about the idea myself.  Ah ha...I found it....see what you think!!

I absolutely love chocolate covered pretzels and potato chips.   The salty and the sweet are a perfect match.   If M&M's can get this right, I might become addicted to them.  Which is why I haven't bought any yet.Embarrassed

Indeed. All of those those things screaming as they melt in your mouth. *shudder*
Plus they'd say, PLEASE DON'T EAT ME AUGH! before you can even get them into your mouth.

Actually it's one M&M and a giant talking pretzel :)

I love this commercial, mostly because I'm horrified yet strangely curious as to how they're going to get the pretzel in the M&M.

They have six colored M&M's. Red, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, and Chocolate. The latter we never see. Why the hell do we NEVER see the 6th M&M?
 
So I made a sketch called Brown M&M. He lives in Detroit and he accuses M&M's for being racist since they don't use him!
Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.

I think they need to make a rainbow-colored M&M to represent the gay community.

I've had the pretzel M&Ms. They're pretty good.
I kinda like the talking dudes, but they're not as cool as they used to be.
This is your brain on commercials.

I just tried the pretzel m&ms last night. They are good....bigger than the regular m&ms. Only 150 calories and 16g of sugar per bag. I put the rest of the bag in the freezer.

M&Ms commercials remind me of the Chips Ahoy ad where the cookie is sitting at a birthday party asking, "Where's the cake?" and the kids look at him and say in an ominous tone, "We're not having cake."

This series of ads reminds me of ads at Xmas time, where apparently some ad agency person thought it would be hilarious if one of Santa's elves was always slightly pissed off about something.
And the prophet said:
"And lo, the beast looked upon the face of beauty. And it stayed its hand from killing. And from that day it was as one dead".

I think the pretzel ones are pretty creepy--some of these commercials get so convoluted that they don't make much of a point.  Stupid.

Agree, the commercial is creepy.

I really like chocolate covered pretzels, if the pretzel is crispy and they use good chocolate. So I really expected to like the pretzel M&Ms, and bought a bag the first time I found them in our office snack bar.
 
Very disappointed. Blech. Won't buy any more.
Hundreds of threads killed.

Let's take a vote: M&M's new slogan should be "Cram It"
