    Ever since that skittles commercials with the guy with the long beard during the job interview, pretty much every new skittles commercial keeps getting weird and creepy.

    Pretty sure it's done on purpose at this point. Like they're embracing the fact that they're one of the weirdest candies out there. I mean... the slogan is "taste the rainbow" after all.

    I would love a Giraffe that can eat rainbows and give Skittles when you milk her. I'll name her Mika.

    Strangely enough, the giraffe in the commercial is a male

    I originally did this for the Cool Stuff thread a few years ago, but it seems appropriate to repost it here :)

    Yeah. I dislike all their creepy for the sake of being memorable ads they do. Just obnoxious or unappealing.

    For a short while back in the mid 90s, they ran my favorite of their ad campaigns. The commercials were whimsical & fantasy-inspired. Some of the best & not creepy at all. Well... the Moon worm one is kinda weird & doesn’t really fit with the others, but the rest are cool.

    That was pretty weird, but I love Skittles. I can't eat them as much as I used to since my PCP wants me to watch my sugar intake since diabetes runs in the family (and I don't want to get it) but I still indulge from time to time. Usually the sour one those.

    When I started working out on a regular basis, I had to cut sugar out. But I used to LOVE eating skittles to the point where I'd have a bunch chewed up into a wad, and pretend it was like chewing tobacco when I was kid :lol  But nowadays...if I really really really feel the desire to, I'd get the wild berry pack. Maybe one or two. I haven't actually had any Skittles in a long while though. Same for any gummy bear products.
