I thought I was going to run out of commercials to showcase, but lucky you, I dug up this old VHS tape I had in a box. Continuing the yogurt industry’s obsession. with skateboarding, here’s an ad from around 1999 or 2000 for Yoplait brand GoGurt, which is yogurt in a tube. Please excuse the clipping of the beginning which was due to not giving the VCR enough time to cue up properly. That was the best I could due at the time. I blame Y2K.

Check out the horrible color cast. How do I work such post production magic? First, the commercial was recorded digitally on ReplayTV, then transferred to a 8 year old VHS tape, and then duped to a mini-DV tape via a converter some 6 years later, and then imported onto a computer. Sweet.
I’d like to point out that there is nothing at all homoerotic about sucking white goo out of a tube while an off camera male voice says “You can squeeze and slurp, grab and glurp!”
