Sexy Cookie Commercial

I just saw your Rod Stewart/chips ahoy commercial with my kids on Animal Planet. I don't understand how a cookie can be "sexy" but I don't think it is the image you want to portray. I know that I will now be avoiding your product because it will remind my kids of Rod Stewart's song and I don't want them going around the house singing, "If you think I'm sexy...". I think you need to fire your marketing genious and start over. If you are that desperate, go back to your traditional ads.

Pull your anti-family, offensive ad off the air for the sake of America's families.

Well usually those comercials are only on more adult channels. Like
you said you saw it on the internet, you can see all kinds of stuff
and you can't help it. It's a comercial that's funny. Their trying
to get more people to buy their product. How about you don't let your
kid watch the comercial. Theres nothing you can do now except start a
one person boycott!


by eydieville Posted Sun August 10, 2008 @ 11:43 PM

hey i love rod stewart. i'll buy anything he wants me to buy. any
cookie he sells is most definitely sexy. by the way, you misspelled
genius. "if you want my cookie and you think it's sexy..."

by Cherry O. Posted Sat August 9, 2008 @ 11:50 AM

You're complaining about a sexy cookie while admittedly watching a
channel with all those NAKED ANIMALS on it??? Shame on you!!
(Sometimes they show animals /mating/ that /aren't even married/!!)

(In other words, lighten up. And make sure your kids are never
exposed to any lite rock radio stations, either, because that song is
a staple. Keep them in plastic bubbles with instrumental hymns
blocking all outside noise.)


by SuzieCat Posted Fri August 8, 2008 @ 11:39 AM

I finally saw this ad this morning. Absolutely hilarious! I have zero
clue what you find anti-family about it.


by Bobosgirl Posted Fri August 8, 2008 @ 2:27 AM

hahahahahahaha.... this is a joke,right? Greg, you must be one of
those overprotective, uber-religious parents,right? Your kids are home
schooled, and they're not allowed to go to any movie that's not a "G"
rating, and they're only allowed to watch PBS and Animal Planet,right?
Do you really think Nabisco was saying "Hey! Let's put that song in
our next cookie commercial so that it will make little kids think
about sex all the time when they see it!"??? If so, maybe you and your
family need a tiny dose of reality.

I brought your letter to my Moms group, and one of the Moms snorted
so much laughing that pop went out her nose. Most of us thought this
was a joke letter. As Mom of 4 girls, I think this is a tame
commercial, not offensive in any way, and if this REALLY offends you,
I'm wondering how big your coronary was when you saw the Carl's Jr.
commercial with Paris Hilton seductively eating a hamburger on the
hood of a car- I believe she had a wet t-shirt on,too-OMG!!! Maybe if
you are truly this sensitive....you shouldn't be watching tv at all???
Just a thought.

by Justin W. Posted Thu August 7, 2008 @ 12:03 PM

It's a joke. They aren't trying to sell sex or make cookies look
"sexy". They've done numerous commercials featuring their cookies
singing old hits. This is just another one and is meant to be fun.


by Richard S. Posted Tue August 5, 2008 @ 2:23 PM

I watched this commercial finally and did not find it offensive at
all. There are a lot worse commercials on TV nowadays. How is this
commercial anti-family? It is trying to get people to buy cookies, not
marry them.

Some people read to much into commercials or are to easily offended.

by Jessica P. Posted Mon August 4, 2008 @ 5:18 PM

I do find a dancing cookie moderately sexy. This does not put me off
Chips Ahoy, it makes me want to crank up the raspy sounds of Rod the
Bod and dance around while I indulge in tasty Chips Ahoy cookies.

Get over it. I doubt your children thought anything of it. Did they
ask you crying, "why is that cookie 'sexy' mommy?"


Totally Hilarious! by HurricaneCentral Wed August 6, 2008 @ 2:44 AM

by Teresa B. Posted Sat August 2, 2008 @ 11:14 PM

This came on earlier today and did not see anything remotely sexy
about it. Its just as dumb as the rest of the talking/singing cookie


by dulynoted (aka duttycalls) Posted Fri August 1, 2008 @ 2:39 PM

There will be 20 more sexy songs out there waiting to be used in
commercials because it draws attention. I mean this one drew yours
didn't it?

I would think you would want to explain that there are things that you
feel are not appropriate for them to view or hear and then teach them
how to ignore it or tune it out.

Its your right to ask the company to not use this commercial but
others have just as much right to view it if they like it.

by YouAreKiddingMe Posted Fri August 1, 2008 @ 12:51 PM

If your kids are THAT affected by TV, you are doing something wrong.

Somehow, I don't chase roadrunners, order crazy products from Acme,
and get myself blown up. Yet, I watched Roadrunner cartoons daily as
a child.

Stop whining, stop parenting, let the rest of us enjoy our normal

by Christopher S. Posted Fri August 1, 2008 @ 8:23 AM

way to stifle creativity!

Do you think your kids are going to go out and be prostitutes or
perverts because an animated cookie is singing a 30 year old pop song?
are you insane?


by Brittany C. Posted Thu July 31, 2008 @ 10:51 PM

This commercial was on last night and all I thought about was this
letter! It was hilarious. =)

by Giggle pie Posted Thu July 31, 2008 @ 8:32 PM

Hey! I love that commercial! It always makes me smile... and hungry
for cookies.


by The Ghost of Tom Joad Erik Posted Thu July 31, 2008 @ 5:18 PM

I don't understand how a cookie can have a mouth and a face and sing
Rod Stewart songs. I also don't understand why, as a living and
singing cookie, he's attempting to seduce a normal human female
instead of one of his own kind. Furthermore, I don't understand why
the lady is the same size as he is, but yet the cookie is grabbed from
the sky by a giant human hand, presumably to be eaten alive. Is the
woman only cookie-sized, or is the cookie human-sized and was pulled
up into the heavens by the hand of an angry, vengeful, hungry god?

But despite not understanding pretty much anything about the
commercial, you don't see me running around and complaining about it,
now do you?


I just hope the cookie is male by ♫Venice♫ Thu July 31, 2008 @ 5:31 PM

Are you kidding me?! Cookies are super sexy!

You can't do that stuff with crackers though.. waaaayyy too prudish.

by Sunflower Sarah Posted Thu July 31, 2008 @ 9:29 AM

It's a COOKIE commercial. When I was a kid, I ran around the house
with a play bridal veil rockin' Like A Virgin, and I'm okay now at 28.

I'm sorry, I can't help but laugh at this letter. There are worse
things that kids can be exposed to other than a "Sexy cookie"


by Nate. Posted Wed July 30, 2008 @ 4:10 PM

If your kids were going around the house singing "If you think I'm
sexy", I actually think it would be cute and humorous.


by miyon Posted Wed July 30, 2008 @ 2:01 PM

I just watched the commerciel and it was pretty stupid and kind of eww
that the cookie was singing those lyrics but offensive no, just dumb.

If you really want to see how children are not as aware of offensive
content then just watch Grease.
When I was little we watched it all the time, I loved singing along.
Then I got older and watched the part with the song Greased Lightning
and OMG.
Some lines from the song:
"You know that ain't no shit we'll be getting lots of tit"
"You are supreme the chicks'll cream for grease lightning"
"You know that I ain't bragging she's a real pussy wagon"

This commercial doesn't sound offensive to me -- merely insipid and
lame and uninspired. Par for the course for 99% of the commercials
out there.


by Beeracuda Posted Wed July 30, 2008 @ 12:17 PM

Oh for God's sake, it's a commercial about a freakin' singing

Don't you have something more important to worry about? If you really
want to shield your children from reality, better keep them from
watching the news every night, as well as showing the actions of that
dumb monkey currently occupying the oval office. Hell, that monkey
cowboy is more offensive to me than practically anything else you can
think of in life.

At least it wasn't Conway Twitty's "Lets Go All the Way."

"Tonight's the Night" Think of the uproar over that.

by D. R. Posted Wed July 30, 2008 @ 11:43 AM

Instead of freaking out, why not explain to your kids in a calm,
rational way why you feel this is inappropriate in your eyes? You are
raising them to overreact and be hysterical over something just
because it's disagreeable to you. Instead of teaching them to turn
away from anything that might not be pleasant and happy, teach them to
deal. Way to raise open minded kids.


by Mrs. Sid Vicious Posted Wed July 30, 2008 @ 11:41 AM

I thought it was funny.


by KJCat Posted Wed July 30, 2008 @ 10:03 AM

I don't find the ad sexy, offensive, anti-family, or anything like
that, but I do think it's unfortunate that Greg is being chastised for
being "narrow minded" because he does find the commercial offensive.
Doesn't he have the right to decide what offends him, or does the 1st
amendment only apply to the more liberal viewpoint?

If the only thing you have to worry about in regard to your kids is
their exposure to a 30 year old song that's already on the radio 20
times a day, I'd say you're doing pretty good.

by Final Score: Boys-3, Girls-1 Posted Wed July 30, 2008 @ 9:30 AM

I guess we're a bad American family, because my husband goes around
singing that song, in the voice of the dad from "So I Married an Axe

My kids think it's funny.

I want to see this commerical now.

Does everyone remember the Diet Pepsi commercial from about 10 years
ago or so? I haven't seen this commericial and it's probably not as
fun as the Diet Pepsi commericial (Rod Stewart vs. construction guy
with no t-shirt...you do the math) but if it gets anal, narrow minded
people like this all het up, it's probably worth the money they spent.

Is it possible you have a problem with Rod Stewart's singing? I know
I do.


by ♫♫Venice♫♫ Posted Tue July 29, 2008 @ 11:29 PM

But.. but.. but.. it's Rod Stewart!

That song has been around forever and has been heard by millions of
kids. I seriously doubt that it has harmed any of them.

Anti-family?.. I hate to break it to you, but without sex there'd be a
lot less families.
