The other day I saw this commercial for spaghetti sauce. It went like this.

"When making spaghetti, some people like this jar"
And then a jar of generic spaghetti sauce plops onto a plate of spaghetti
"But others prefer the great taste of Prego"
Then it pans to Prego sauce being ladled onto spaghetti...
but right next to the plate is a JAR of fucking Prego.

What the fuck is the point of attacking your competitors for being in jars when your shit comes in a jar too? That commercial makes no fucking sense and almost gave me a nosebleed when I first saw it.

Dr. House: True. It's a life and you should end it.
Eve: Every life is sacred.
Dr. House: Come on. Talk to me. Don't quote me bumper stickers.
Eve: It's true.
Dr. House: It's meaningless.
Eve: It means that every life matters to God.
Dr. House: Not to me. Not to you. Judging by the number of natural disasters, not to God either.

Prego's better than Classico, though. So it's valid.

No it's not. The entire point of the ad is that the first stuff is crappy cause it's in a jar.

It would be a valid point if Prego came in some fancy fresh-seal package or something.

You seriously like Prego over Classico? Weird.

Prego is like the cheapest crap ever. But don't you understand FA, with a name like PREGO you just ignore the jar and suckle the... flavor?

I don't know, you getting mad at a spaghetti sauce is pretty funny.

Classico is fucking amazing. I cook almost everything I can make in a skillet with classico sauce.

Omlettes for example are awesome with it.

Hm.. I'm going to say the commercial is stupid because what else could spaghetti sauce come in? What is wrong with a jar? If you're not making it home-made, it's gotta come in some package. Jars are as good as any.

Uh I think you all missed the point of the commercial. When they said "this jar" they meant people go for that brand name, but when brands aren't mentioned, they prefer the taste of Prego. Whether its valid, I have no idea, I eat neither, but that's what it's saying.

Honestly, I've only ever seen milk in jugs or cartons; the milk in the bag phenomenon must be an east coast thing.

that's not really true, you basically just saute some the vegetables or meat you want and then dump a can of tomatoes in that and cook it for like 20 minutes. It comes out a lot cheaper too.

Quoted from Dr. House:
The other day I saw this commercial for spaghetti sauce. It went like this.

"When making spaghetti, some people like this jar"
And then a jar of generic spaghetti sauce plops onto a plate of spaghetti
"But others prefer the great taste of Prego"
Then it pans to Prego sauce being ladled onto spaghetti...
but right next to the plate is a JAR of fucking Prego.

What the fuck is the point of attacking your competitors for being in jars when your shit comes in a jar too? That commercial makes no fucking sense and almost gave me a nosebleed when I first saw it.


Yeesh...

I was trying to find a video of that ad, and I ran into this.

Yes, they ALL come in jars. They aren't "attacking" the jar, they are saying that most people prefer "THIS" jar (the squarish one with the olde-style label), even though (according to them) actual taste tests result in people preferring Prego sauce.

Again: they are not criticizing the jar, they are criticizing an apparent preference for a type of jar rather than the content. Have you not noticed that all of these "fancy" brands come in a fake masonry jar, even though they are all cranked out by an automated factory?

It's a perfectly rational commercial, whether you like Prego sauce or not. This is what you get when they over-estimate an audience which typically attacks advertisers for treating us like idiots.
