SNL: Corn Syrup is great for your children!

I love advertising.

Big business will condescend once in awhile to spend some bucks on a commercial saying their products are alright for you. GMOs? No problemo. Milk? Gotta have it. Meat? More, please. Burger King? Mickey D’s? Vitamin Water? Smart Water? All essential, buy more please.

Organics? What’s that? No budget for commercials? Oh, well, guess We the People will have to use our own brains on that one.

Corn Syrup? Yes, it’s fine, why do you ask?

I've been waiting for a parody of this! It takes effort for me to not let that (real) commercial haunt me. This made my day, thank you 🙂
