WHY GOD CREATED YOUTUBE™: Krazy Klassic Kommercialz

Hopefully these won't be proven to be fake videos (unlike yesterday's...thanks for the crappy research, Ivy, you little jerk). First up, courtesy of Dartanjal, we have a 1969 International House of Pancakes commercial. And while the consensus appears to be that it's the product of a drug-addled brain, I prefer to think it just came from someone actually eating the breakfasts depicted in the commercial and then experiencing a massive blood sugar upsurge. Either way, it's disturbingly entertaining, and it's not fake.

Then we have a commercial sent in by Tiree, a classic little slice of American advertising stereotyping/racism, The Frito Bandito. Thrill as legendary cartoon vocal maestro Mel Blanc teaches children how to steal Fritos® Corn Chips from unsuspecting victims!

Truly, these REAL commercials are why God created YouTube.

forgive me. those weren't pixels moving before my eyes after all! i don't give a fuck if it's real or not. the performances sell it as real. correct me if i'm wrong, but i don't think mel blanc is mexican. maybe he shortened his name from blanco. i've never seen a moustache curl up like that either. you also spelled sugar wrong, or is that a red hot chili peppers reference? i know you have a weakness for their early stuff.

LANGUAGE! I don't appreciate sloppy research, you little two-bit nogoodnick, and I certainly don't appreciate libelous statements about my musical taste. The Red Hot Chili Peppers only ever did two good things: make the decision to cover Stevie Wonder back in the day and give props to Ornette Coleman onstage at the Grammys this year. So you can take your little proofreading comments and shove them up your * if you know what I mean.

i would, but then i'd have to shit them back out to find the one that says you spelled nogoodnik wrong. valiant effort though.

A+ for spelling, weasel. Pity about the capitalization though.

Keep it up and I'll cut you open like a tauntaun, you little prick.

youtube has sure allowed fuckin' dorks to make references without having to worry about people not getting them. "hold on, you will find out the manner in which you'll be cut open as soon as this video loads." thanks god.

*Ahem* Back to the topic at hand...

I'm not doubting that these are/were genuine commercials. However, I do hold some doubts as to whether the food items on display in the House of Pamcakes commercial are genuine or not. As well all know, the food shown in commercials is not always real.

(Note to self: Try never to eat an Arby's Beef 'n' Cheddar or a KFC Famous Bowl. [Again.])

Wow, that Filet O' Fish Sandwich actually looks good. The KFC Famous Bowl sounds like a horrible idea to start with. And to end with.
