Another commercial I can't stand: the Fiber One hippie girl

Fiber OneI can't stand the new Fiber One commercial.

Don't get me wrong, I actually like the series of ads that feature the store manager and his assistant (played by Kate & Allie's Fred Koehler) singing the praises of every type of Fiber One product on the market (cereal, yogurt, snack bars, etc). I think most of them are pretty clever and it's great to see a series of ads on TV featuring the same cast. But the new ad is irritating as hell.

You've seen it (hopefully, since I can't find it online to embed here - here are some others): the store manager (Ajay Mehta) goes up to the hippie-ish chick who has opened a box of Fiber One Cereal and seems to read her mind. He knows everything she is about to say before she can say it, but he assures her that he's not psychic. At the end she tells him that she's going to buy the box of cereal, "but you already knew that."

Yeah lady, of course he knew that. because you've opened the damn box and you're eating the cereal. It doesn't matter what brand of cereal it is, it doesn't matter if it has fiber and doesn't taste like it has fiber, and it doesn't matter if I'm psychic or not or can move things with my mind like Sylar on Heroes. You've opened the box of cereal so you have to pay for it. I don't even care if you tasted it and you think it tastes like monkey paws, you still have to pay for it.

I thought that when I got older, little things like this wouldn't bother me so much, but just the opposite is true.

I like the ad 'cause the girl is way nice looking. Beautiful eyes, lips, like a Heather Graham type.

This commercial, actually their whole line, beats the plethora of loud stupid commercials featuring people behaving like monkeys. Kind of makes me think the advertisers consider their audience in the same manner.
I especially HATE the Free Credit report dot Com ads and that weaslely Scotsman whipping people with an oil dip stick. I wish it were real so I could break his arm when he tries it on me.

But anyway, I'll take this pretty hippie chick - even though they ain't my schtick - any time.

anyone who knows what monkey paws taste like , probably doesn't care what the cereal they eat tastes like.

but , right, totally annoying ad.

My sister told me to read this because I say the exact same thing every time this commercial is on! I like the other commercials they do, especially the Black guy and his wife that one always cracks me up. But not this one, for the same exact reasons you stated. It just bugs me!
