    Posted: 03 May 2013 at 11:32pm
Lays is back with more overly sensualization of greasy ass potato chips.



I hate the single loud CRUNCH that comes from the front desk girl. Really? Is she not chewing these chips at all? Then she reaches for the phone without wiping her hands which other people have to use. You literally can't eat Lays without getting grease fingers so that is nasty.

Then the girl getting her nails done can't control herself because Lays are so f**king good right? Dead She goes over and STEALS the chips (classic ad cliche) because they're so good she has to have some right now. It predictably ruins her freshly painted nails by dusting them with greasy chip flakes. Ok, can I break it down for a second? If your nails are so short that they don't stick out over your finger tips you have no business in a salon paying for a manicure. This grown ass woman looks like she has a nail biting problem.

Then the manicurist says nothing and just continues, basically giving her 2 paint jobs for the price of one. This would never happen in real life. THEN cut to the "so wrong yet to right" orgasmic face the woman makes at the end while chewing her ill gotten grease flakes.

I like Lays chips, I do, I just don't buy them for myself. This ad actually makes me repulsed and makes me think of the greasy feeling my fingers get after eating them. Not something you want your target audience to recall while selling your product.
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

I saw this commercial a few days ago, and I thought the same thing. It totally grossed me out.

If you are trying to sell a FOOD product, isn't beneficial to make it actually look appetizing to the consumer? It seems like gross food ads are happening more and more nowadays.

I hope the manicurist isn't starting over.  I hope she's just painting over the grease and crumbs on the customer's fingernails.

I kinda liked this one...no clue why.

But repeat viewings are kind of enhancing the grossness.

Yet another commercial where someone goes crazy over a 99-cent commonplace snack. Have you ever, EVER seen someone that addicted to Lays chips, especially the original flavor?

Yes, gross. But who gets chip pieces on their nails? I mean, was she digging around in the bottom of the bag or something?

Also, I can't stand the quasi-sensual finger licking/sucking around :05 to :07. Reminds me of all the seductive finger licking going on in the videos in this York Peppermint Patties thread.

And to top it all off, now whenever I listen to Bread, I'm going to think of this horrible commercial. Thanks, Lay's!

I don't really care for Lays, they just don't really seem to have much flavor. Personally I like Gibble's Red Hot potato chips and Muncho's.

Back in the olden days, they only came in one flavor---potato.  That's all we had, and we were damned happy to have it, by golly.
 
I remember when ridged chips (Ruffles) came out.  It was big news in the potato chip world.  LOL

My best friend's family used to get them delivered to their house.

Thought they were real highfalutin' because of it, too.

We always got Lay's in da' bag.

ConfusedOne might suspect if one has potato chips delivered to the front door, they've a set of misguided priorities. Should at least come with a proper beer.

Ugh.... I saw this commercial for the first time the other day and the part at the end where it shows her nails with the polish and chip crumbs all mixed together made me gag. This commercial is disgusting.

I don't recall any flavored chips from back when I was a kid.  In fact, I see that Lays' first flavored chip was barbecue, and it was introduced in 1965.  If there were flavored chips long before that, they weren't any famous brand.
 
In fact, I see that some brand in Ireland called Tayto was the first to introduce flavored chips in the late 50s.  Never heard of them.

^^^CryI resemble those days.
We were too poor...could never afford those expensive chips. Being Irish, we just ate potatoes and pretended. Those were the days of 'feast or famine', and for poor Irish, well...it was just famine.
In fact, I think I almost starved to death.
Then we remembered we had an Italian-side to our family, and they gave us chips from Chicago.
Don't recall what brand.
Pretty sure they were 'plain'.
I remember going to the zoo on a sweltering Sunday, eating chips, chips, more chips, and peanuts. With a few grape slurpees.
The puke was purple.

You must be one helluva lot older than I thought you were.

Because I woulda thought that in 1965 you were probably still a kid.

I know I ate BBQ potato chips all the time as a kid.

Probably didn't "graduate" to SC&O flavored until my teens.

I remember my buddy D. Jack & me getting high as kites after school one day, hitting the mini mart & getting a bag of SC&O chips & a tub of onion dip, then going behind the building, sitting down in the grass up against the wall, chowing down on chips & dip, laughing our asses off.

Just one of those odd, random memories that stick in your mind for some reason.

I could probably include a Google map aerial view pic of the spot behind the store where we sat, but that'd be a bit much.

Tempting, though.

Pa's family was so poor, if they wanted potato chips, they'd have to slice up a bunch of potatoes & set them out in the hot sun until they turned crisp.

Okay---from 0-10 years of age, I didn't even have the opportunity to eat flavored chips as they didn't even exist here in the USA. 
 
Once again, imagine we had an eye-rolling smiley and I placed it right here.

Hey, bub... I can play that nit-picking, hair-splitting game just as good as you can!!!

And you need to spend some time studying the extended smiley catalog a bit, because once again, we DO have an eye-rolling smiley. It may not be an animated one, but it's in mid eye-roll, which serves the same purpose.

Let's get with the program, eh?

ConfusedEmbarrassedoh...yea. That happened.

All of this chatter got me wondering what some of the 'stranger flavors' of chips exist on the global market. It gets strange, fast.
(note the 'Roast Ox' flavor, amongst others (almost looks like Henry Rollins on the bag...)
