I just saw your commercial featuring “Mr. Beaver” and I am concerned.
Correct me if I am wrong here, but it seems fairly obvious that the campaign was created by the 10 year old nephew of someone in the marketing department in exchange for a piece of gum. If so, you were ripped off.
I pray that I am right, because if I am wrong that means you actually paid an advertising agency to create this garbage.
My suggestion, get your gum back and dump the beaver. I feel qualified to tell you this because:
- I have teeth
- I have an I.Q. over 12
