Ok, now a philosophical question: If the product had (hypothetically) 25% more sodium, then the salt shaker would be unnecessary. Now, that the product has 25% less sodium, the shaker is again unnecessary? Aristotle would roll in his grave. Apart from that, IKEA deja vu all over. Brilliant crying scene tho.

Ditto Temple. I was thinking the same thing!! It just doesn't fit. Other than that, I like the "awwww" feeling it evokes...damn cute salt shaker. i would adopt him any day, sodium or not :)


Not all who wander are lost.

This one gets royally on my nerve. I am so sick of these types of approach. Pillsbury got me fed up on them.

IKEA lamp - right, but so what? It's a truly brave commercial for such a terrible and narrow minded client.

Very cute! I have never thought that I would have been emotionally attached to a saltshaker before like this!

anon 2:35, the family in general is cutting down on their salt therefore the shaker is not needed - see your point though
