Lifesavers are a Hole Lotta Fun

I like Cherry and Pineapple Lifesavers and I love wordplay (hole lotta fun!), but I dislike this style of commercial tremendously. I am not sure why it bothers me so much, but at the same time I cannot look away. Kind of like those Peter Gabriel videos from 1980s. Well played Dr. Lifesaver! Well played…

One thought on “Lifesavers are a Hole Lotta Fun

  1. I miss those lifesavers, I remember eating those when my grandma drove me in her 1978 olds delta 88 (the all steel tank) with am/fm radio and 8-track player all around houston. I wish they would bring those back. They stopped making them in 1988 or 1989, I think because after that I would buy certs wintergreen. Lifesavers should bring those assorted flavors back because Pepsi did a throwback in the design. Yeah they had to stop making those lifesavers back then because that is the year I started to record airchecks off the radio and collect blank audio tapes.
