Have You Seen the Skippy Snack Bar Commercial With the Elephants?
I have no idea how people didn’t like this commercial…I mean, really…It’s SKIPPY! That’s what’s in the jar, the very same Skippy, that’s what’s in the bar! Honestly, I thought they caught a legitimate reggae vibe with this one. The song has been stuck in my head for years now. To this day I randomly up and start singing it. See for yourself.
There’s also a whole write up on the ad on Slate: Does Skippy’s New Spot Target Stoners?
It looks like Skippy had high hopes for the Nutshells and Skippy Snack Bars…but neither are anywhere to be found since around 2004. People are still searching for them though. Here’s the original press release.
