Working in advertising must be awesome these days. All you have to do is come up with the strangest thing you can imagine, and you’ve got yourself a new Starburst commercial.

Gay Little Lad?? What about gay Gap guys eating berries and cream Starburst. Little Lad- Fictional, Closet Gay Gap Mo's- Fact. Pay attention!.
(sarcasm) thanx for your sympathy erin, ever since i did this commercial people accused me of being a gayguy from the 16th century.
Well, I just think the "little lad" is adorable. Especially on starburst.com/iamalittlelad ...or something like that. But, I think what is most amusing to me about this commercial is that this "little lad" bears a striking resemblence to Rev. Hale from 'The Crucible'. Anyone else notice? Watch them both again, and you'll see it.
I dont care what people think about this commercial.... I say this is the funniest commercial out right now!
ii d0nt kare wat ppl say dis c0mmerical is s0000 funny! itsz weird bt funny ii lk it s0 0h well datsz my 0pini0n !
I really don't understand why this commercial is funny to sooo many people. Is there some sort of reference to something in the commercial that I'm not getting? I feel like I was told a really funny joke but I'm just not getting it. Or is there really no logic at all behind it?
Now the singing bunny commercial actually makes a lot more sense to me. That was similar humor but it at least made sense in a very basic way. I mean imagine someone did have a singing rabbit and was offering to trade it for only about a dollar's worth of candy. Who the **** wouldn't see any value in owning something weird that nobody has ever seen before. However soon the kid in the commercial realizes that the rabbit while interesting is way more annoying than expected. And now he doesn't want it. But at the very end the rabbit bites him and then runs away. So now the kid not only was tricked into giving away his candy but he also lost the singing rabbit and has nothing. Personally I found it pretty funny. Very weird though.
xD If this dude walked up to me and started doing that, I'd get the heck out of there. x.x
Insane as this commercial is, I watch it intensely every time it comes on. And if you're a fan of Adult Swim, you know it comes on at lease 25 times a night. And Yes, I watch it every time.
the first time i saw this i was like, what the hell? the best part is when he says, berries! berries and what else?! (and cream) OHHH!
and then that look on his face.
This is absolutely the stupidest commercial I have ever seen, and I would not buy strawberries and cream just because of this commercial!
I was really really high when i saw this commercial for the first time. It really freaked me out! I have seen it sober since then, and it still freaks me out.
all time favorite commercial
You know...i spent many sleepless nights watchin this commercial on tv. And yet i am still looking for some sort of sense to it. This and the skittles rabbit just confuse the hell out of me...
DR. Frank , thats the point and the genius of it, its so weird and stupid and but yet unforgettable!
i cant get the commercial out of my head, but i still love it, it may be stupid, but from a business standpiont its a good idea, becuase they know all the idiots like me would love it!
I really dont care who you are that is funny. I have never seen anyone make that noise when they hear the word berries. and his little dance will forever haunt my mind(in a good way) i give the starburst company props on this one. they have had some good commercials but this one takes the gold. BERRIES AND CREAM!!!!
OMG! That was the biggest waste of time ever- it wasn't funny. I could think of something better than that for a commercial.
its really dumb, but dumb enough to make me laugh..
I love this commercial!!!
Yeah, its dumb. But its over the top stupid for a reason.
Commercials like this are so excruciatingly annoying and random so that the viewer doesnt forget them, and even discusses it with others.
its a marketing tactic used by a lot of companies that cater to the youth. like emeralds nuts, or the slim jim commercials, skittles, etc.
basically this is proof that instead of marketing divisions, companies now just go talk to a group of stoners. hence the bright colors and the ridiculousness. I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time.
His face...HIS FAAAACE!
I agree with most of you, when you say it's sad what humor has sunk to, but some times, after a hard day, all I want to do is laugh at something that doesn't make any freaking sense at all.
same here man, everyone freekin loves that guy at my school
Everyone at my school love to imitate that guy
I shudder with dread everytime this commercial comes on. It freaks the hell out of me. Seriously. Can't we come up with something less sucky and creepy?
TopMonkey, make an account, you seem like fun. To the forums!
Ah, you hit the nail on the head..."mind numbingly ridiculous that this has become the norm for humor."
I think it represents a digression where humor is no longer cleaver or witty, just funny. However, for me, the level of fun is taken away by the stupor I am left in by trying to find some logic in the humor. Of course there is none, thus the numbing effect.
I'm not sure how this makes me feel. It's funny, yes, but mind numbingly ridiculous that this has become the norm for humour. The interwebz is a contagion.
I have to go with Pokey. The lace collar. How can you say no to the lace collar?
well, with everyone hating on this now, i kinda feel dumb saying this is my new favorite commercial on tv :/
but it seriously is.
Certainly on the edge of 'Disturbing'
i saw this yesterday on t.v.
its not less gayer on here than t.v.
(its funny in the stupid way)
Thats just stupid.
