On other words, it's a commercial. A really long one, that isn't very funny, even though it looks like it could be. Funny, that is.

Summer: No! White Gold can't swim!
Nasterious: Well, can he die?


Worth the watch.

Opera is music for adults, rock is music for kids.

Keep'em separate.

Assigning sweeping, judgmental labels to consumers of entire genres of entertainment is for pretentious old people, not doing so is for people I can stand.

They're already separate.

If you do not find this wonderful, kill yourself. You are dead inside already.

You know who else liked Milk & Pepsi (blue)?

That's right: Laverne!

"Opera is music for adults"

Actually, for the most part opera is pretentious nonsense that few adults can even sit through, much less enjoy. So at best I think you can claim opera is for a few adults and likely even fewer kids.

The commercial? Fun for the whole family.

I was convinced this post was going to be a link to this mindbending disco "hit"

I saw a this clip over the weekend. I'm baffled. I never would have had any cross-coverage in a Venn Diagram of "Village People," "Musical Theatre," AND "Dairy Product Promotion"

You know, they've been doing the White Gold commercials for a while, and I never took a shine to them (especially the character) , until "Milkquarious." I'm very tempted to watch it at home.

I don't suppose there's a cameo by the Geico caveman, is there? THAT WOULD BE AWESOME.

This is ridiculous. Like a two-gallon axe.

This video is the best video ever. A friend of mine insists that it had to come from an ad agency bet: how crazy can we get before the client says no? Their mistake was pitching it to the Dairy Council. Everyone knows the Dairy Council never says 'no.'

*needs sound engineer* "music overwhelms voices.
Have liked opera since childhood, so there!

Interestingly enough, the actual band that performs White Gold's music is none other than Detroit's own Electric Six.

Brought to you by the fine people at Goodby, Silverstein & Co. of San Francisco, CA.

Their core "belief"? "Art Serving Capitalism."

The capitalism, I see that. Now, the art...uh...

I think we may be paying too much for milk in California.

They sure don't make milk commercials like they used to.
