Wow - I can visualize the group of oily haired, black framed glasses wearing, protruding nose haired, powder blue polyester suited, yellow toothed grinning nerds that came up with that ad.

I can visualize the oily haired, black plastic framed glasses wearing, powder blue polyester suited, yellow toothed, hairy eared geeks who came up with this ad.

Okay, multiple problems here. This is clearly a B-to-B ad, but why does it presume that a merchant would want to use sex appeal to sell prefab cake and then mention how it's advertised on kid's shows? It shows no creativity whatsoever. For starters, they missed a great opportunity to use them as boobs.
Or, with a strategically placed Twinkie, they could have come up with some erotic pastry!
