New Peeps Commercial Is Most Certainly Sweet
This will actually make you excited for Easter, a holiday that gets nowhere near as much credit as Christmas and Halloween.
The ad taps into two different classics: The main characters perfectly fit the older-brother-mentors-younger-brother motif, and the script borrows heavily from a memorable Forrest Gump scene when Bubba explains to Forrest all the different ways you can prepare shrimp.
Good for Peeps for making us believe there's more to them than biting off small heads or blowing them up in the microwave. The more you know, right?
