  • You know, I might get an order of hello fresh



  • Why do I watch this video every time I cook ramen. Every. Single. Time.

  • The thing is the unpredictable becomes predictable meaning they will slowly revert to a more grounded ads again

  • Wait did little lad say barries and craem?

  • theory’s n cream theory’s n cream Im a little lad that loves theory’s n cream

  • Ah man, now Im disappointed because both of our Quiznos locations closed down a few years ago :( Those sandwiches slapped when I was a kid,,,

  • I remember that funky baby monkey ad. Oh god.

  • Yes I will give you all my bleach

  • Today: me watching food Theory: 100 years later:Aaaaaaaa

  • 4:25 that is what my dreams are like. Something weird happens and I don't freak out because I think it is normal in my dream.

  • Never seen an ad like that.

  • I don't know why I was so entertained by these conspiracy vids as a kid. I think I just liked conspiracy stuff.

  • I need Food theory about long man commercial

  • Mat pat at the start why?

  • Little baby ice-cream

  • wait a minute... I have something- Berry and Cream~ Berry and Cream~ Is that a maniac I see~? It has a kick to it I can say... 😆 also, I have not watched the entire video sooo yea...

  • I’m surprised that you didn’t mention Japanese commercials 🙃 You get commercials that actually make a storyline

  • My friend got her Alexa to play berries and cream... don’t do it... it’s terrifying

  • no wonder i dont remember this commercial, i was in the navy at that time, did not watch tv during those years

  • Thank😑 Now the berries and cream song is stuck in my head 😂

  • #berriesandcream

  • 8:18 it's just cos I'm a n....

  • I'm sceard cuz my name is akrm and that man said cram 💀💀

  • Haha nice of you to include a commercial from my home country, the Philippines.


  • Why does he looks so familiar

  • do you conduct this research with gluten free people in mind? I know you probably don't but may you do one gluten free research episode. I don't find alot of youtubers talk about gluten intolerance. what can fill up a gluten intolerant person can be cost effective? just wondering

  • I remember puppymonkeybaby😂 I miss the old ways of commericals

  • That ad was from Philippines

  • I forgot about puppy monkey baby. Thank you for the torture.

  • I personally love puppy monke baby

  • Baries and crum

  • I’m surprised he didn’t mention the little babies ice cream commercial. That’s literally the creepiest commercial of all time

  • 3:05 Filipino language

  • Why do i just sleep at night no matter how bizarre the thing is (except the subway one why does that even exist)

  • i love the little lad dance

  • Cool

  • Like that little reference to duck season when your were showing the other ads

  • I made a severe and continuous lapse in my judgement, and I don’t expect to be forgiven. I’m simply here to apologise. What we came across in the woods that day was obviously unplanned. The reactions you saw on tape were raw; they were unfiltered. None of us knew how to react or how to feel. I should have never posted the video. I should have put the cameras down and stopped recording what we were going through. There's a lot of things I should have done differently but I didn't. And for that, from the bottom of my heart, I am sorry. I want to apologise to the internet. I want to apologise to anyone who has seen the video. I want to apologise to anyone who has been affected or touched by mental illness, or depression, or suicide. But most importantly I want to apologise to the victim and his family. For my fans who are defending my actions, please don't. I don’t deserve to be defended. My goal with my content is always to entertain; to push the boundaries, to be all-inclusive. In the world live in, I share almost everything I do. The intent is never to be heartless, cruel, or malicious. Like I said I made a huge mistake. I don’t expect to be forgiven, I’m just here to apologise. I'm ashamed of myself. I’m disappointed in myself. And I promise to be better. I will be better. Thank you.

  • Indian ads....they are the weirdest even weirder than these

  • Oh.... My.... God!!!!! I remember that cat herding commercial! FAhjflahfeiafhlakhdfuagkdncm Nostaglia! Thanks, MatPat, for bringing that one back into my memory!

  • That RC Cola commercial was definitely bizarre, but I also thought it was really cool and super creative!

  • Little Lad is so berries and cream

  • I remember hearing the audio i thought it was funny but seeing the actual video its traumatic

  • Nevermore🎅

  • Why does Little Lad sound so much like MatPat? Especially when he says Food Theory.

  • "Dont' do drugs," unless making comercials? idk. just..... weird.

  • berries and cream berries and cream im a little lad who loves berries and cream.

  • I love everyone that keeps comparing this guy to Preston from Camp Camp

  • come to think of it I despised companies that did those kinds of ads and tried to stay away from them lol

  • Little lad got a monopoly on tiktok he really went I took willy wonka and made him better


  • I can’t stop hearing it…

  • *Filipino commercial plays* Filipino watchers: why hello there

  • my mom works at ohio state univirsity

  • 8:40 when everyone's unique no one's unique. It all just blends together.

  • Theories and cream, Theories and cream, I’m a little lad who love’s Theories and cream

  • So if there's Oddvertising is there Evenvertising as well?

  • Start video lol

  • 3:06 some Filipinos knows this ad🤣🤣🤣

  • fun fact: 3:09 is a filipino commercial


  • Someone convince Mat to watch all of the Orangina commercials

  • berries and cream

  • Oh gawd

  • Fr I have some of that bleach as well, like as a kid I can't stop thinking about that puppy-monkey-baby ad like who confirmed it because I.. need to add some words and talk them with my fists. Oh that nightmarish thing.. so terrifying.

  • Bat may baso ako sa likod filipinos like 😏

  • I wanted to admit to this a long time ago. I like sports, but the most challenging thing to do on earth is to actually get out of bed and get candy.. I want candy, but im not gonna get out of bed for it..

  • The “herding cats” commercial was funny because it took a saying, “like herding cats,” to its literal conclusion. And because anyone who’s spent time around a cat knows the idea is absurd. It wasn’t just weird for the sake of weirdness.

  • The fact that the weird soda head glass ad was made in my country is very sad but oddly nice


  • This video looks like a Minecraft spawner and clicking the spawner with a Filipino Spawn Egg..


  • As a kid, over here in Britain we had a NHS ad, about strokes, that gave me nightmares but i still remember it.

  • starbursts’s lil lad vs Dr Pepper’s lil sweet. who wins

  • Me at the store: can I have 1099 million billion gallons of bleach don't ask why

  • 3:15 only in the phillipines

  • Up the optive Go for it


  • Bares and crem

  • Berries and cream.

  • Berrys and cream berrys I’m a little lade that loves berries and cream

  • I saw some panda cheese ads on youtube many years ago and I will never forget how strange they are.

  • Fun fact: I'm Finnish and I got a Russian banking ad in the middle of this video

  • I did not know about this channel

  • I got an add for milk when you got to the he never drinks milk part

  • when I told my sister this was from a star burst ad she didn't bileve me

  • Berries and cream berries and cream I'm a little lad who love berries and cream

  • Miller Lite Evil Beaver and Reebok Terry Tate Office Linebacker are probably tied for the 2 best surreal commercials ever made. "Wendy's Where's the Beef?" is maybe the greatest pre-internet commercial even being stolen and used by a presidential candidate at the time.

  • Gotta give props Jack Ferver to instantly jumping to seize his newfound popularity, he really profited off of it!

  • Did any one else see the comment number ok have a nice day

  • Dear God, a dude at my club heard berries and cream, and he did the thing...
