What idiot decided that the homely kid with pox all over him (real Skittles) would motivate consumers to eat Skittles? It's absolutely hideous.Shocked

You'll have to excuse me - I was born a poor white child with a deranged mind
Big smileLOLI have absolutely loved this commercial from the first time I saw it - Skittles makes some of the most outrageous commercials. I haven't seen any new ones in a while and I really miss them
Here's a good list of the best of the Skittles commercials, but I have a few personal favorites not listed

Everyone needs a catchphrase, no matter how little it makes sense.

I might say Communist, too.  Or ISIS.  That is, if I disliked the commercial.  But I don't.  I like it.  So, it comes to us on this holy day from the Baby Jesus (maybe with the help of Donald Trump).  That's just my opinion.

I haven't eaten Skittles since I was a kid.  I am sure that I am not in the target audience for their commercials, so I can forgive them for missing the boat with me.  Still, I have to wonder if:
 
1) Are they actually hitting an audience with their commercials?  Is there actually a group of 14 year olds watching this and laughing like crazy at what they air?
 
2) Are they finding this audience properly?  I tend to watch reruns of Law & Order, Jeopardy, and documentaries.  Why have I seen this commercial so much?

Skittles are pure sugar pills...could become the candy of choice for opioid addicts...Maybe that's a target audience!  Ermm
