Today we saw the new commercial for Tropicana’s new Light’n Healthy orange juice. It’s the latest in the low-carb fad, a low-sugar carb, low-calorie version of orange juice. What have they done, just water it down and add flavoring?
I thought it was kind of cute, all the exercising oranges. Oranges doing step aerobics, oranges on treadmills, oranges jogging…It’s silly, but hey. I remembered later that it was Tropicana they were advertising, and for an ad campaign, that’s solid knowledge. Kudos to Element 79, by the way.
Back to the reason I started this entry. The thing that made me laugh aloud was the shot of oranges happily diving into a pool of orange juice. When I saw that, I exclaimed, “They’re diving into orange juice!”
Well, c’mon. Think about it. That’s a little cannibalistic (well, uh, in a vegeterian sense). An orange jumping into a pool of orange juice is analogous to a person jumping into a pool of blood. Boy, throw that analogy on the SAT’s.
Well, at least you can say there’s such a thing as blood oranges, right? Gee, I wonder if the orange juice in the pool was extra-pulp.
Yes, this really is how my mind works, and it’s scary. I’m almost never bored, though.
