Say "From Charms!" "What?" (Cut, cut!)

It's my first entry in March and I apologize for not adding anything since the end of February. School, work, and such got in the way. Damn Thesis and whatnot.

Well, that's going to change right away with a trip down memory lane. I'm sure everyone remembers this Blow Pops ad from the early 90's:

To be fair, I don't know when exactly this ad was made, but I'm pretty sure that most of these kids are dead by now. All I know is that back in the early-to-mid 90's, Nickelodeon played this ad at just about every. single. commercial break. I already saw that Milhouse-looking kid hold the watermelon three times, lemme get back to Legends of The Hidden Temple, dammit!

On another note, I noticed the watermark on the vid says "" Hey, that's my blogger friend Mystie! Go visit her site now! It's more or less a girl version of X-Entertainment, but you say it like it's a bad thing!

A newer, longer entry to come later.

I so wanted to be one of those kids when that commercial came out. They were so cool, with their free Blow Pops and brightly colored ramshackle clothes. I still think it's a brilliantly choreographed spot, but the kid with the deep bass voice creeped me out.

Definitely remember that one. How could you not, with as many times as they played it?
