M & MS / Deceptive commercial

1 VA, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

A recent commercial shows the M & M characters emerging from a freezer. One says that his "M" has shrunk. The other asked didn't he know about 'shrinkage'... a reference from an adult comedy show "Seinfeld" which reference a part of the male anatomy. This crude attempt at humor is not only dated but inappropriate for children who see these cartoon characters as toys. In fact, the company markets them as stuffed toys, candy dispensers, etc. The marketing dept. needs to understand that you can't have it both ways.

    I feel the same way about the recent commercial where the husband comes home and finds one M & M under the sheets and another in the closet and complains that he thought they were going to share him. Not appropriate for children to wonder why a husband would come home and find someone/something in bed with his wife and be upset and the wife saying it's not what you think. Why are we trying to make cheating look like it is humorous, I just don't get the thinking behind it all.
