Mentos Mystery




Copy: Mentos - Helping people get ideas

Mentos ads in the past have been weird, hokey, idiotic, in the coolest possible way. But these mentos ads are a complete mind freak. I don't know anything about them (found them on a Chinese blog), and I can't stop scratching my head. Let's start with the tag line, "helping people get ideas." I don't know how such a claim could ever be substantiated, but it's genius. And the complete ridiculousness of suggesting that the greatest minds in history somehow benefited from a minty white candy (that didn't even exist yet) is not only ballsy, and moronic, it's hilarious. For some reason I love these ads. But where did they come from? Are these from an ancient Mentos campaign, are they spec, perhaps from some agency in Amsterdam, or has everyone already seen these? Someone please help me solve this curiously minty ad mystery.

Based on my Mandarin 101 classes what I translate they are saying is that Mentos candy is so good it causes a moment of extreme consciousness, an epiphany!! Thus Einstein and other great thinkers got their genius mojo from Mentos candy

those mentos ads remind me of old guiness ads and/or those fake ads for liquor that say "helping make ugly people look good for XX years"

These games are fun because they give advice and immediate feedback that helps the learning process. As you improve your score, you will feel a sense of accomplishment. Online gambling is also convenient because no partner is necessary. Do you know someone who enjoys spending time at Barnes and Noble or Amazon stores at any time of the last reading?
