    I thought I'd bring back some old-school Mentos fun.

    Per Wikipedia:
    Part of Mentos's popularity can be attributed to its camp TV adverts and catchy jingle, which debuted in late 1991 on American television. Shot in South Africa, individuals facing various day-to-day dilemmas consume Mentos and are subsequently inspired to solve their problems at hand in a creative, often-humorous fashion.

    These unusual behaviors are typically witnessed by nearby, sometimes antagonistic characters, and a roll of Mentos is boisterously displayed by the commercial's respective protagonist to the observer as an explanation for their actions. The ad campaign was parodied in the Foo Fighters music video for their song "Big Me."

    How inspiring! ;-)

    Seriously, though, I totally want one of those Mentos. Right. Now.
