First-who brings clients home for dinner? That is just weird. That only happens in movies and apparently, mac and cheese commercials.
Second-I am SO over "smart-ass" kids in commercials. "Dad really messed this one up" (by inviting his client over to dinner without telling Mom).Way to be stereotypical, too, by making the client Asian. How expected.
Mom saves the day, thanks to Kraft Homestyle Mac and Cheese and quick thinking.

This MAY be one of the worst Stupid Man Commercials to date! Congratulations, Esurance! While your peers are busy just implying that men are complete fools, you actually commit to copy by displaying a name plate under "Hank" that reads "out-of-touch Dad". Really? You mean, holding a hose while it slowly (like, usually it takes DAYS to fill up a pool) is being "in touch"? Who would think that? But, just in case some viewers slipped through the cracks, Hank's phone has a clown-like ring tone to Eforce the Effort to make Hank look as dumb as possible. My favorite part is that the neighbor is a black man. Could you imagine if the "out of touch Dad" was a black guy being corrected by a white male neighbor? (GASP!) The irony in the desperate attempt to be politically correct while mocking "Hank" is absolutely fantastic. Yeah, this is bad, real bad, Michael Jackson.
First, I must apologize for being absent for, well, over a year. Apparently, it's hard to have a full-time job, somewhat of a social life, and still manage to update a blog that you claim to be passionate about, in a reasonable amount of time. My apologies! Lucky for us, there has been a ton of great content in the last few months that we can expose! The gem below was on one of the major networks late last night. The culprit is Kraft Mac & Cheese. This makes me sad for several reasons: 1. I fiercely defend Kraft Mac & Cheese as being "THE" only powdered poison cheese and noodles in a box worth consuming! I have been in (often times, drunken) debates with strangers about the superiority of the contents in that blue box. It's better than the generic. It's better than the organic. It's better than home made (you KNOW it is, too). 2. Actually, I don't have another reason..... So, let's just go ahead and get into this. I'm not sure what's worse, the selfish Dad or the annoying-know-it-all kid. Since when does a 6 year old know what the word "questionable" means? Since when can they even pronounce it? Poor Mom is cooped up, alone and VERY pregnant in bed, while her (lazy and apparently hungry) husband and son relax downstairs. The woman requests some mac and cheese from her husband. She does this via text (which I have got to imagine is just a sign of our times, and not that the house is THAT big). Her husband rushes to the kitchen, opens the coveted blue box, and within moments, is back on the couch with a tv dinner table (what are those tables actually called?), inhaling the cheesy noodles. He failed to bring any up to his wife, who soon calls him out for his selfish and inconsiderate behavior. Damn guy, don't you know NEVER to come between a pregnant woman and her cravings? Stupid man.....
