Ha! The Snickers Supe Ad You Didn’t See

By Debbie Schlussel

After Sunday’s Super Bowl, everyone was crowing about the Snickers Betty White/ Abe Vigoda ad, which I thought was over-rated (plus, who knew Vigoda was still alive?).

But here’ s the ad Snicker’s didn’t run, below.  At first I thought, hmmm . . . Aretha Franklin ain’t exactly who you want in a Snickers ad.  After all, too much Snickers = Aretha bod.  But I like it better than the one that ran during the Big Game.  What do you think? I prefer to think of Snickers as the liberal candy bar–any way you slice it, it comes up nuts.

I am glad I tuned in before I went to sleep. The ad is magnificent.

LOL! This one is definitely the better ad of the two.
But for some reason the other actors in this commercial (besides the obvious two) look all too familiar, especially the driver.

    Driver = CSI guy. Can’t remember name.
    Loved it! Of course it had Liza in it, so have to. For Facebook’s “Doppleganger” week, my friends couldn’t tell it was her and not me. We are the same age even.

    Absolutely the better ad. Never was into Betty White although I hope I’m doing that well at 89.

    Yeah, she WAS a hottie, but with all that makeup, she looked like a talking corpse in the commercial!

    theShadow on February 11, 2010 at 1:35 am

      She just turned 63 and life hasn’t been easy! I have a pic of her w/o any makeup. on my Facebook profile. Amazingly much better. We even have the same wrinkles.

      More a combination of the makeup and all of the plastic surgery that inhibits her ability to move her lips when she talks! 🙂

      I liked the second commercial way better than the one that ran during the Super Bowl. The image of an 89-year-old woman getting tackled by a bunch of young guys just doesn’t sit well with me.

What I didn’t like about the ad is that it urges people to eat when they’re feeling down and cranky, which is how you get to look like Aretha.

That was really funny! I think we all know someone who gets as grumpy as a diva in the backseat, when their insulin drops. Thanks for posting it.

I’m getting tired of the jihad look that I’m seeing more and more in commercials with men in beards, like the ones in this commercial. These commercials seem to be trying to win the Muslims over to their product. This commercial is just another example of it.

You’re not you when you delude yourself into a liberal mindset. Eat real food!

I like any commercial that makes me literally laugh out loud.. ” can you feel that”…. I liked it.

Diets make you want to play with dynamite.

    Especially this one. I bet the director of this commercial was Muslim because it is clearly targeted at Muslims. They even throw the word “coexist” into the commercial. Watch the commercial again. All four of the men in the commercial look just like Muslims with their beards. I won’t be eating Snickers again.

    JM on February 11, 2010 at 11:25 am

Do we not know a “diva” as portrayed in this commercial?

The Big Cow on February 11, 2010 at 11:32 am

Off topic: I was following the case of Martin Grossman in FL this morning and its sad to see Orthodox Jews plead for clemency for him. His victim never received it. I wish they were as concerned about her as they are for a guy who took a human life in cold blood. The Torah demands the death penalty for murder. If he isn’t executed, its an offense to G-d. To see religious Jews commit chilul Hashem on a behalf of a murderer is an affront to everything for which Judaism stands. I hope the State Of Florida turns them down.

    Thank you Norman, I’ve been saying the same thing over at Israel National News and it’s awful what a supposedly right wing web site is doing with this. I’m 100% with you on the reasons but aside from those, the compassion and mental disability ones just don’t hold water.
    This animal supposedly has an IQ of 77 but he became Bar Mitzvah on time, not an easy task and he supposedly writes in prison. There is NO justification for any more time. He got 25 years he wasn’t entitled to.

Skank Aretha is perfect for the grumpy diva–so I it works. I like your line:

After all, too much Snickers = Aretha bod

From all I’ve read and heard, Aretha is one of the most disgusting divas of all time, screwing people out of money at every turn. She can sing– but she is off my list of who I want to listen to.

Snickers–eh, whatever. I mooch them at Halloween and prefer them frozen. After that, I don’t eat them for 11 months.

Nah, like the Betty White – Abe Vigoda ad better. Vigoda’s timing on a simple line, “That’s gonna hurt” is great . . . and he’s like 92.

Enough with these scruffy bearded hipster freak actors in commercials please! They look like they wash their hair with baby oil!
