I have seen that commercial a couple of times and it is definately disturbing. I don't know what the hell they were thinking. I don't eat candy much, but that sure makes me not want to buy any starburst.

I do not think it was meant to be as creepy as it is. It was probably just a tip of the hat to Lionel Ritchie, and his awesome Hello video. The commercial gives me the creeps!

Hey Jeff,

Let me know if they offer you any free Starburst candy or coupons in response to your complaint.

I like them! \:D

But yeah, they think sex sells everything...even to little kids. Really pretty stupid...

But I never caught the sly cross reference to that freaky Lionel Richie video...man that was one ugly bust that they had in that one!

BTW, has any tried the Starburst gum?

Take care all,

Regards,
