Idle Thought #1: Donuts For Diets June 24, 2003

Did you know that Winchells had a radio advertising campaign recently, in which they tried to persuade that TWO donuts (TWO, count ’em) have LESS fat and FEWER calories than a scone from that Fancy Tarted Up Coffee Place That Shall Not Be Named in the Advertisement .

The ad featured a Valley Girl type, who said she worked out at a gym that morning, then went and munched on TWO glazed raised at Winchells, while her friend Brittany or Amber or Heather or some other comical name like that went to that Fancy Tarted Up Coffee Place That Shall Not Be Named in the Advertisement and ate a scone. And guess what? Valley Girl LOST WEIGHT but BrAmbHer DIDN’T. (Take *that*, Starbucks.)

Nevertheless, reality was successfully suspended until they lost us upon comparing their Winchell’s drizzle to Starbuck’s eurobrew.

As well, the ad neglected to mention Valley Girl’s real secret to slimming success: she shucked the donuts, coffee, and what was left of last night’s dinner in Winchell’s lavatory after the taping.
