Surprising chewing gum with liquid filling.

What's there to like? It's a straight-up metaphor. A BORING metaphor. The copy is crap. Please... move on.

Totally agree. It's utterly boring. Mentos is worth more exiting advertising than this.

Totally not connecting with me as a consumer. And I'm the target. I eat tons of chewing gum. All kinds of gums. The comparison/metaphor/analogy here feels completely irrelevant on an emotional level.

I thought the visual puns were not allowed in advertising anymore...

Guess not. : (

i agree with Jet propulsion lab.. by the way thats a cool name. This ad does not connect with the consumer the visual communications switch is off. The metaphor is not connecting with me either, i guess its something about the product shot in the add. I think even all the copy needs to be reversed white to be consistent.
