I see this on TV and frankly was shocked. It opens the doors for so much on TV ads....not sure I want to go there. There is another ad with a blonde who is supposed to be beautiful, an is eating food with her full pink painted lips as the star of the ad. I hate this one, but I can see how it sould be seductive to some.

It's pretty risque and I can see how that would put some people off. I liked it a lot, though. It was really well done and pretty funny, with the risque stuff mostly done for comedic effect. Or at least, that's how it came off to me and my Y chromosomes.

It did nothing for me. Took too long to get to the point. I clicked off after 1:15 min.

In some agreement. I thought it was amusing, but it needed some serious editing. It could have accomplished more and more effectively in half the time.

There are tons of risque commericals in a wide range from tasteless to clever, but I haven't seen many food ads of that ilk, which is why I posted it here (with a warning). Anyone else seen any well done humorous food ads?

Ha ha, my GF agrees that the ad is sexy, but hype is cheap--what no one has pointed out here is that Bertolli oil is not 100% olive oil, let alone "extra virgin" as noted by the USDA. It's like US politics--if the candidate only pays a lot for prime time sound-bite ads proclaiming how great he is, voters will buy it. Have fun viewing the ad, but buy California Olive Ranch or some other oil that is the real thing.
