In the latest Dr. Pepper commercial a cute brunette mother pulls up in her mini van, as she slide open the door, we see a group of little league boys nearly drooling in her direction. Hmm, what other choice for music did they have?
Could they have had any choice besides “Fountains of Wayne” performing “Stacy’s Mom” (Has Got It Goin’ On)???
Personally, I thought the commercial was cute, but the more I thought about it, it began to creep me out. First of all, where’s Stacy? How do we know this is Stacy’s Mom. Hmmm?
Then there is the whole thing about these boys leering at this Mom. Of course, in the video, Fountains of Wayne played up the “M.I.L.F.” factor too. But in this commercial, there is something about it, I dunno. Can you say…EW!
Ah well, the music is the key, and I liked their choice. I just think the concept needed more work.
