This Philadelphia Cream Cheese Commercial is Confusing

The message that cream cheese is awesome is not confusing. Instead it is their choice of music and visuals, which were seemingly cobbled together at random. This is Philadelphia Cream Cheese and they open up with a shot of San Francisco? Then when the music comes in, it has nothing to with Philly or San Francisco, instead it is “New York, New York?”

Thinking about it just leaves me feeling confused. Confused, but also hungry for a bagel with the rich creamy taste of Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

New York…New York…
