I don't know if I'd want to eat that ice cream so much as appreciate it in a small contemporary art gallery.

If you go to their parlor, try the David Lynch, it's delicious.

All I could think watching that was "I think that's marshmallow fluff. Is that marshmallow fluff? Oh yeah, look at the breakage pattern when it drips away, that texture has got to be marshmallow fluff."

I think the internet has desensitized me more than I realized.

When they said "Feed your head", they didn't mean "to yourself".

It's the end result of an ongoing process: this is the identification of the consumer with the product taken to the nth degree - the consumer AS the product.
Seems like 'I'm a PC' was just the start of things...

I'm pretty sure I'm an outlier, but I thought those were awesome.

I want this to be a trend. I want to see car commercials, beer commercials, laundry detergent commercials, hell, all advertising in general go to this strange and special place. It seems to be a better fit for our current reality.

I eat little Bab[ie|']s.

I did not know this was a commercial, so I immediately heard that as literally eating little baby's ice cream. Stealing it from babies gives them pleasure.

It was better that way.

Does anyone else get the impression that he is simply demonstrating what he is about to do to our brains and that is why he has that look of demented anticipatory joy? Just me?

I'd like to see ads for some other flavours:
Mental Chocolate Chip
Rocky Rohipnal
Maple Wall-eyed
Pralines and Scream
Chocolate Chip Wookie Toe
Chicken fetus nog
Aaarrrgghhheeeeooooo

The cannibanilla does look tasty though.

They certainly made excellent decisions with this video, as it's been on boing boing, gawker, buzfeed, huffington post, and metafilter today.

I'd be skeptical but I've had the ice cream and it was very good.

Watching that video right after learning Mark Clayton won the TN primary (two posts after this) definitely augmented a mega-weird feeling. As if there's a hidden theme for today.

It started when the post contest page led me to that rock festival in backwoods Wisconsin 42 years ago. Bargle nawdle zouss.

But Lather still finds it a nice thing to do,
To lie about nude in the sand,
Drawing pictures of mountains that look like bumps
And thrashing the air with his hands.

Seen it.

25 years ago.

AND there was a jaunty tune.

all of those little headless, drippy menwomen are inside of you now, working on your intestines and grinning, endlessly, endlessly grinning.

We have now found the perfect metaphor for 21st century American life; demented ice cream men eating their own delicious brains.

I want to Hunt and Kill the persons responsible for producing that clip and putting it in my head.

it ain't cheap, but I LOVE their ice cream.

It is delicious. I would gladly pay $4 a scoop if they would, in fact, provide an actual scoop. The portion is ridiculously small. There are other interesting premium ice creams in town that offer much better value.
