Cry I thought the adworms understood when we said "no more ukulele-playing high school eco-chicks, please...".
Watch out boys! They're taking over - you'll be eating yogurt, staying fit & healthy, playing a ukulele and driving a Toyota Prius before you know it. They're starting out by luring you with free yogurt. If you fall and become just another 'Nature Boy' (or 'Naturally-PW'd Manchild to the Woman of the Castle'), please remember to shower daily, use deodorant, and don't let the wife start dressing you there, 'KenDoll'...
PigIiiiiiiiiiiiii's SO hungry! Aren't those 'Cornish Game Bunnies' in the top-left?!

I once tried their yogurt because there was a coupon in the paper for a free one.  It had a thick, chalky texture (and that was their "smooth" yogurt. Dead)  To lure people as you say, Chobani will either have to up their quality, or just keep going after the low hanging fruit that doesn't know the difference...  LOL

I have to say I have tried plenty of their yogurt and found it to be fine - but then again, I can't tell the difference between one yogurt and the other as long as they are fresh. No matter the yogurt, I always stir it up well and take a sniff before diving in as there is nothing worse than bad milk products.

I've tried Chobani and I think it's OK, but I HATE this commercial with the 12-year-old 'hipster' 'singer'. Can't sing worth a darn. If Simon Cowell saw this, he would bleed through his ears!

Some of these so called "12 year old hipsters" are actually 30 something professional jingle singers.

If you see this one in the store, give it a try.  Yummy!!
 
Argh: This photo is from the manufacturers' website:
 
As wonderful as this tastes, I do feel compelled to point out that the product does not in fact come with as much "topping" as is shown in the picture.  Maybe if you tilted the container just right and carefully placed it down to be photographed (but even then, just barely).  It's a two-part container.  The back half of the top portion (i.e., the one containing the crunchies) is pretty much guaranteed to be empty in the real deal.
 
Even so -- This stuff is pretty damn tasty. 
I'll give it that.  (But not a health food by any stretch.)

ShockedBig smileClapYAY!!! My favorite yogurt! Especially Blood Orange or Strawberry Rhubarb! They seem to be the ONLY people making stuff with rhubarb, these days. Yogurt is one of the few reasons I will walk into a WallyWorld, anymore as they are one of the few places that carry Noosa and to top it off, they have the largest selection.

I don't do yogurt. Maybe, I am missing out. Mama sure loves the fruit and yogurt parfait at McDonald's.

I go with the healthier choice of a quarterpounder deluxe. Sometimes, my body ask me..."Why are you so mean to me?"

Speaking of, "no more ukulele-playing high school eco-chicks, please...".  LOL


I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

I registered just to post about how much this commercial makes me want to punch babies. I don't watch much TV, but when you're bombarded by the same commercial repeatedly, it really gets under your skin. The person singing is TERRIBLE! I haven't heard anything that off key since Roseanne sung the National Anthem.

Big smileWelcome aboard and since you think about punching babies, we can talk...
 
The singer may improve over time as everyone does over time and I believe love her and raised her in a positive manner by fostering her positive dreams. She can almost sing in key! She can almost sing! Being good parents, they did what good parent would do in this case - bought her a ukulele and got her some lessons at high school string band. She may have won the school talentless show one year. Her parents did something right and may be Chobani employees - she got a commercial from Chobani.
No matter anyone likes their product or not, they are an AMAZING company who's founder is an amazing story within himself and one of the most kind-hearted self-made people in existence.

What you said about her parents getting her a music deal reminds me of Rebecca Black's parents paying $14,000    to make the infamous Friday video and single. The Friday music video and single was one of the most hated music videos/singles of that year. I remember on YouTube a poster saying something like, "Friday could have been really good if Rebecca didn't use auto tune and the music video had a been filmed better."

Good point, Donathan and glad you brought that up. I purposely used 'high school string band' because achieving a dream is something that can't be bought and the most important education in life is free.

I haven't been on this board in a while, but this assault on my ears drove me right back.  I knew there had to already be a thread about it.

I agree with Dejoh, it's probably a thirtyish professional trying to sound cutesy.

I like plain whole milk Greek yogurt with a little honey and maybe some almonds, or in tzatziki.  But no fruit.

IIRC,  "America's Got Talent"  had a ukulele-strumming twelve-year-old, Grace VanderWaal,  who sang with a waif-voice (with occasional hiccups and  growls thrown in).  She wowed the audience, charmed the judges and won the season.  I may have been the only person in America who didn't care for her act, but I have an allergic reaction to ukuleles on general principles. This commercial unpleasantly reminded me of her.
