I HATE this stupid ad!!!! It opens with a "spying" effect look at a group of idiot married yuppies supposedly gathered at one of their homes talking about their newborns' COLLEGE PLANS? Yeah, right. The whole premise is totally absurd. I could understand it if they were doing some blow and swinging instead. And as you would guess, there's only one couple, led by the irritating, smug wife, who says that she and her hub have signed their kid up for the Gerber Life "College Plan" -- which is really just life insurance. These self-absorbed yuppie stooges don't realize that it's a scam and that it would be a lot cheaper to just get the kid into sports for a scholarship. The whole bogus "meeting" premise is stupid, and all of the actors are really annoying. But the real questions is: WHO'S WATCHING THE KIDS?

The woman with the weird hairdo annoys me to the nth degree, but the woman who puts her hand up drives me nuts! You're not in class anymore! Put your flipping hand down!!!

I'd like to see them discussing the Gerber plan while twerking.

EXACTLY! The lady with the dark hair and the super straight bangs. UGLY hair. Yuppies is what comes to mind too. Over achieving anal retentive personalities.   And the way the woman (dark banged hair-do)says Where do you even ST-ar-TTT! Makes me cover my ears and grind my teeth. O-B-N-O-X-O-U-S!

At the same time their are cute and endearing commercials I love. They make me laugh and smile. BTW would a yuppie actually feed their darling jarred baby food? gasp! Hardly they would buy fresh organic veggies and make Baby Biff his own Martha Stewart approved homemade nummy num.

They should also be discussing what happens to the money in their Gerber Plan in the event that their kids drop out of high school or die.  Planning ahead is what these people do; they should be discussing these alternative possibilities.
