I went on a little YouTube bender the other day (thanks in part to my friend Christy) and watched a bunch of retro TV commercials. A couple things surprised me, including the fact that both Pop-Tarts and Taco Bell have been around since the 70’s. I’m sorry if that makes you feel old but it’s the truth. Anyways, this Pop-Tarts commercial is pretty awesome:
The funny thing I noticed is toaster reminds me a lot of William H. Macy’s character, Donnie from Magnolia. In particular the line, by the toaster, “There’s a lot of good inside,” and how similar it is to how much love Donnie has to give in the movie. I also like how insecure the toaster was with his first night in the house, worried he wouldn’t be able to impress Suzie.
