    Posted: 18 Aug 2010 at 4:31am
Now we have Jamie Curtis pushing something resembling a green painted ice cream cart, and she comes across a couple. She jabbers on about the yogurt, then the female half of the accosted couple says "Isn't that the yogurt that makes you...you know...regular?", then the male half gets a horrified look on his face and says "I'll pass" or some such horse puckey and then starts to push the yogurt & spoon away.
 
Jamie then says that the yogurt is "beyond tasty", prompting the male used douche to put a spoonful into his mouth. Cry
 
She doesn't explicitely say that Activia contains Bifidus regularis or that it helps you take a shiit on a regular basis, but we all know that when the name "Activia" is spoken, that it's the "poo poo yogurt". AngryOuchDeadOuchAngry

ConfusedI have a few real problems with this ad...
1.) WHO wants to "get regular" as they are walking through a city park?
2.) If you DID just happen to "get regular", where - oh, where, would you do it? Are you a 'Charmin Bear', or do you have TP stuck to your shoe, following you as you walk?
3.) The guy is CLEARLY an idiot - yes, talking with his mouth full...maybe that was better than what came NEXT...
 
"...Gee...THANK YOU, JL & Activia! Couldn't have done this without you!..." 
 
(out of decency, I decided to just post a link...but you better be 18 ~and~ have Mommy & Daddy's permission, before looking - or I'm tellin' on ya!)

DeadCryShockedUnhappyConfusedLOLEmbarrassed Oh Pa, we need a warning before seeing 'crap' like that...I was eating while reading this thread! (just kidding about the warning, of course.  The thread title alludes to the subject matter haha.)  Wow, imagine the embarrassment of having that happen to you. Shocked

These Activia advertisements act like bowel/intestinal irregularity is a problem that every human has every day.  I never have had an issue that would require me to go on some yogurt regimen to get my poop in order.  Is it really such a widespread problem?  Jamie Lee Curtis acts like she is the spokesperson for poo issues for all America.  It is strange.
Welcome to Commercial Land. This is a magical place where all women look up while eating, and it is perfectly acceptable to slurp the hell out of a Dannon yogurt cup.

The cup is too small for a man to enjoy his yogurt. I had a strawberry banana yoplat or something and just as it was getting good, it was all over Cry  I have to eat 10 of those yogurts to be happy.

It's not necessary to talk with a mouthful of yogurt.  You swallow it before you say it's delicious.  It's not like you have to chew it.  It's not a mouthful of gummy bears!

Please do not get me started on these ads.  I have already called the company and voice my opinion on their disgusting barbaric ads.

Ah ha!  A conspiracy to sell more Depends!  LOL  What is sad is that I'm not really that surprised the two are related.

What I mentioned in the other thread is what I especially love is the fact that they are promoting Activia's "great new taste".

Does that mean that the original Activia had a bad taste?

Oh wait...

Wait, could that mean Chinese buffets are also in on this plot? I mean, considering how fast the food goes through you...(no wonder it takes less than an hour to be hungry again!)

The more I see these commercials the more I cannot understand why Jamie Lee is doing ads that are so icky & dumb.  She doesn't really need the money; she has money, her husband, Christopher Guest has money, her mother has money, and she will probably get a bunch when Tony (Curtis) kicks the bucket.  I know celebrities seem to never have enough money but why doesn't she do something more tasteful, more dignified, i.e. cars, jewelry, even stores or electronics, etc.  They must be paying her very, very well...

One might consider other options:
 
1.) JLC actually has a vested interest in 'Activia'; considering her wealth, it makes lots of sense to do have exactly that.
 
2.) JCL 'believes' in the product.
 
3.) BOTH of the above, in which case I suggest you recall John Harvey Kellogg; in other words, if there is an 'Activia Health Farm', maybe it should be avoided...

Because if they do want it, their wives will say "Babe, what are you doing?", causing them to slink away from the fridge with their tail between their legs.
