Are You #%^1n' Kiddin' Me #7

I've been driving my family a little crazy with my obsessive behaviour surrounding this commercial:

The stuff being advertised here is being called a "water enhancer" by the company who makes it. Every time that guy says "it really changes your water", I scream "YES, it changes your water into juice!" at the TV. My family used to just laugh, but now they are beginning to find it tiresome. Nonetheless, I can't seem to let it go.

I have nothing against this product, but for some stupid reason I can't just let this "water enhancer" angle slide. I mean, what is the real difference between this stuff and:

Sure, the chemicals and artificial flavours and sweeteners may have changed, but how the hell is this stuff really any different? When you add a flavoured syrup or powder to water, you have made juice. Crappy juice, but juice.

This is a pretty minor thing, I know, so this instance of "Are You #%^1n' Kiddin' Me?" should probably read "Are You #%^1n' Kiddin' Me, Rantwick? I mean, how can this matter to you or anyone else?" But you know, I've already, like, written some stuff. So that's where we are.

Yes, it Changes Your Water. Into Juice.

I decided that I had to stop watching or find some rope and hang myself in the shed. I do not habitually watch TV but in passing one the remarks I make are met with a somewhat sharp reply however nothing has been thrown. Yet.

That ain't no water. That's something like juice-aid.

Good catch! This post should be deemed a PSA, yo!

And let's not forget Tang. The drink of Astronauts.

Fool - You ain't so foolish. I should watch less, but it is like a car crash... I can't look away.

Chandra - PSA? Really? You crazy.

Steve - Who could forget tang? I almost chose over Kool Aid, but that jug guy is something of a father figure to me.

This year has been just awful for commercials! It's ridiculous to get so worked up over TV of all things, but they've just been so annoyingly moronic that I get angry. I think my Mute button will be worn out by the end of the year. :/

PS. Tang is yummy stuff! Oh Yeah!

Tang rocks!!

When I was a kid I would put 1/2 inch of the stuff in the bottom of a glass and add just enough water (a couple tablespoons) to make it the consistency of pudding.

Then I'd eat it and be bouncin' off the walls for a while.

Good times.... :)

Anon - Commercials provide pretty much all the material for my Are You Kidding Me? posts. I mean, it is easy pickin's. +1 for the love of Tang.

Drummer - Tang paste! Mmmmm.

Given the responses so far, I should just do a lovin' post about Tang and let the enthusiasts roll on in!
