If this isn't the WORST Fiber One commercial yet - so bad it makes even "Yummy Scrumptious Bars" look tolerable - I don't know what is.  Another terribly sung bastardization of an oldie.  So I guess Jim Steinman is desperate for money these days too. 



There's another one (the one I just saw during the commercial break on Judge Judy) featuring a man looking into his refrigerator and literally crying because there's nothing good for him there to eat.  All I know is it uses the same song snippet with slightly different lyrics, but that's all I know, because the mute button was punched faster than you can say "Bonnie Tyler."

Ugh! That's horrible! Makes the Sanda's Yummy Scrumptious Bars look like a masterpiece!
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

I was sitting here reading this website and I just saw this commercial (well actually the crying guy one) and I thought to myself "wonder if this commercial is on this website" and it here it is.
This commercail is stupid for various reasons I get the song stuck in my head (the real one not the Fiber One one), it annoys me how the guy is grabbing so many boxes of the Fiber One bars they're falling all over the floor, if you eat that many why bother eating "healthy" stuff just eat a real candy bar and call it a day.

I just saw the commercial I originally posted in the OP above twice in the past hour (during Judge Judy commercial breaks).  I didn't notice this before because the music was so awful I muted it and tried to block it out, but the acting in the grocery store scene is horrendous.  The way the woman gapes open-mouthed at the box of Fiber One is completely dopey.  And I absolutely hate food commercials which involve people opening the box and sampling the product RIGHT THERE IN THE STORE - most normal people BUY THE PRODUCT first, take it home and THEN eat it.  Not to mention she gets that "so delicious I'm having an orgasm" look.

I think these commercials are going to be my worst of 2013, unless something worse comes along in the next two and a half months.

By the way, the original "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" was the #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 exactly thirty years ago to this day.  What a crappy way to celebrate that classic's 30th anniversary.

^I've had a few situations where the stores will refuse to sell you the item if it's been opened. Even if you state you yourself opened it.
 
Mind you, it's typically those new "by-the-book" employees like this. Typically we only ever do this with drinks, but there's been one occasion when I had a fainting spell after a dentist appointment as a kid, so my mum actually opened a bag of chips and some stuff for me to eat.

I should've listened to everyone here and not listened to that commercial!

Aside from the horrible song bastardization, the woman standing next to the pile of Fiber One boxes has creepy serial killer eyes and the way her eating is shot makes her look like she's eating a turd she found on the floor rather than the "right snack"!

You have to wonder why fiber has become such a huge deal, anyhow. The average requirement is 25g, and that is so easy to hit unless you're eating NOTHING but meat. My only guess is with the low-carb diet fads maybe people aren't getting enough plant foods, but I don't know.
