Eat More Cheese

This commercial is so brilliant, I just had to share….

HA! Commercial got you in the middle didn’t it? Read more about how John Nolan created a robotic mouse for the film.

Well, while we’re on the subject of food commercials, here’s the clip that most influenced my behavior while in an intoxicated state. Do you how many times I’ve said, “WASSSAAAAAAAAAABI” with my tongue dangling out? No wonder why I was single for so long.

What’s your favorite food commercial?

    Too funny! The cheese one is a hoot! But honestly the “WASSSAAAAAAAAAABI” actually made me LOL!

    Haha. I loved that the mouse winked at the 22nd second and how he breathed while on the board. Can’t remember any of my favs at the mo’ – caffeine meltdown!

    The “got milk” commercial where the poor guy is trying to say “Aaron Burr! AARON BURR!” through a mouthful of peanut butter sandwich. It never gets old!

    Call me a softie, I was distressed until I saw the little guy move! Favorite commercial? Funny that your example was a Budweiser one; mine are always the Anheuser Busch ones at Christmas with the Clydesdale Horses…reminds me of home.

    “My brother says it’s hip to be square. And Elios Pizza is square! … You put it in the toaster oven, and tons and tons of cheese goes blub blub blub. And the best part about Elios Pizza is that my brother has to make it for me.” Not a good commercial, but I loved it for some reason. Also the lifesavers(?) commercial where the dad and the kid are watching the sun set, and at the end the kid goes, “Do it again, daddy!”

    My kids always loved the Little Ceasar’s pizza commercials where the cheese stretched and stretched and stretched……and then snapped back.

    That mouse commercial is hilarious! Thanks for starting my morning off with a laugh.

    These were good. Thanks for the LOL laugh!!

    I am partial the to cat herding commercial.

    Ok…so I let my 7 year old watch the mouse commercial.

    He almost got teary eyed…”Mamma! What happened? I think he’s alive…?”

    “OH Yeah!!! Eye of the tiger! That’s a strong mouse!”

    “Why would someone set a mousetrap? That’s mean.”

    “lets watch it again!”

    AWWWW TOO CUTE! ~jaden

    I liked the Tabasco commercial from the 2005 superbowl (i think) – a guy is eating a pizza and dropping tabasco on his pizza…a mosquito comes and bites him, flies away a little bit, then…BOOM!! it explodes in a firey explosion! – classic

    omg i totally remember that commercial – laughed so hard! ~jaden

  11. Jaden, you have a wicked sense of humor. I knew something was up with mouse but didn’t expect it, made me laugh out LOUD, hilarious, thnx.

  12. meeso — 1/22/10 @ 6:25 pm

    Omg, I felt bad for that mouse… I am a sucker for suffering animals and such :( Funny though.

  13. Lea Ann Brown — 1/22/10 @ 6:44 pm

    I was so upset over that mouse and was so glad when he was ok! Great commercial. I can hardly kill a spider. Have always loved that wasabi commercial.

  14. Sherry — 1/22/10 @ 8:37 pm

    I too have an almost 7 year old…not cool for several seconds there…poor little mouse…poor little almost 7 year old worrying desperately about the mouse…lol.

    wow just love the rat commercial !awesome! witty too!

  16. Asianmommy — 1/22/10 @ 10:51 pm

    Haha! Great commercials! I love the Eye of the Tiger. Takes me back… :)

  17. Dani H — 1/23/10 @ 2:32 am

    I don’t know which is cuter – the mouse commercial or that you like it so much! I loved it! Thanks for sharing, Jaden. I, too, like the cat herding commercial. No other food commercials come to mind at the moment. Have a great weekend. “See” you soon, back here or on Twitter. ddh77

  18. Shoshanna — 1/23/10 @ 3:24 am

    I love the Nolan’s cheese commercial!! hahahahaha Nice one, Jaden. :)

  19. Stephanie Manley — 1/23/10 @ 10:32 am

    These commerials were the best! I think one of my favorites from a long time past was the Wendy’s Where’s the Beef? Somewhat annoying at the time, reminds me of growing up in the 1980s. It reminds me of how often those things were said.

  20. Chris — 1/23/10 @ 1:09 pm

    Ridiculously hilarious!

  21. Karen Kay — 1/23/10 @ 3:38 pm

    OMG! That is a riot! Check out the Cat Killer commercial on You Tube. It was nominated in the category of best commercial by the Directors Guild. I was laughing so hard I was crying. The Cat Herders is genius.

  22. rita — 1/23/10 @ 4:43 pm

    dang! sometimes, i hate not living in the US, anymore. there are a number of vids that i can’t watch, online – and the mouse vid you embedded is one of those :-( . by the way, is the wasabi commercial going to be one of those, “whassup!” phrases that came out in the late ’90’s, early 2000’s?

  23. The Teacher Cooks — 1/23/10 @ 8:30 pm

    Those are HILARIOUS!!!

  24. Nick Santos — 1/23/10 @ 9:20 pm

    SNL has had some hilarious fake food commercials:

    Quarry Breakfast Cereal
    Super Bass-o-matic 76
    AM Ale
    Colon Blow

    And of course…

    Taco Town

  25. cakebrain — 1/24/10 @ 2:31 am

    LOL! The cheese commercial was so funny! thanks for sharing!

  26. Alison — 1/27/10 @ 5:06 am

    Just discovered your site and already love it! The mouse ad had me and my boyfriend laughing hysterically. I love mice and cheese, so the clever idea of cheese giving the little guy the power for a real workout is fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

  27. Dandy — 1/28/10 @ 1:58 am

    Scared the crap out of me for a minute there!

  28. Maggie — 1/28/10 @ 7:52 am

    Oh little Mr. Mousse! He’s sooooo cute, Can you imagine a legion of mice eating cheese and adding some muscle bulk?!

  29. Arika — 1/28/10 @ 6:18 pm

    I am Japanese, and have worked for Japanese restaurants in USA. I love how much people love wasabi in U.S. XD did you know that real wasabi is very expensive? :( 100g of wasabi costs about 600 yen ($6). ew.

  30. shoppingsmycardio — 1/28/10 @ 7:30 pm

    um, THAT commercial is my favorite one now…seriously, best laugh i’ve had in weeks! i could use some of that super strong cheese. awesome find :)

  31. Erin — 1/31/10 @ 5:53 pm

    I was all teary at the mouse getting smooshed then I was seriously was bawling with laughter at the end. Seriously freaking funny.

    my favorite…. just look at those noses!!

  32. Erin Leigh — 1/31/10 @ 5:54 pm



    that mouse commercial made me cry then bawl with laughter.

  33. diva — 2/5/10 @ 4:01 pm

    Aww great laughs here! I shat myself in the middle of the cheese ad and then loved the ‘revival’ of our dear mighty mouse! :)
