Has anyone else seen this commercial for Kraft Mac n Cheese? I just came across it and I'm appalled. For those who can't watch the video, a little boy is sitting in class and there's a police officer at the front of the class. The boy asks the officer what happens to someone who steals a lot. The officer replies that they go away for a very long time. Next scene the boy is having dinner with his family. His dad takes a bite of his mac n cheese and just then a bunch of squad cars pull up to the house. The commercial concludes with the boy's smug, self-satisfied smile.

Um, Hitler youth anyone?! This is the kind of dangerous propaganda we need to be aware of. Just look at the comments and how ignorant people are to what's going on in front of them...OMG dis iz lik da funnyest commershial eveeeeer lolz!!! No, this is NOT funny and it's NOT cute. The message is pretty clear to me, pledge allegiance to our corp. and screw your loved ones. The State will help you! Be greedy and then you'll find happiness with Kraft!!

Surely someone out there must see what I see.

Yeah I remember seeing that, pretty creepy. A lot of shows marketed to kids depict parents as being stupid, and gullible.

I believe they were coming to take his Dad away for taking too much KD?
Not to say there isn't any subliminal suggestions, but I don't make the connection where the kid stole anything.

Oh come on, seriously how would they even play a burglar continuing to come in and steal his mac n cheese. It had to be parents, or a sibling.

I might agree more if dad was stealing from the government, but it's the kid being wronged in the commercial; there's certainly a bit of subliminal there but it may be more you connecting it.

We at ats are in the special place to make these connections more often whether intended or not because of our constant exposure to these topics.

Ah, the Witch's Kraft at it again - poisoning not only your children's bodies, but also their minds.

I would have liked that commercial a lot more if this tish wasn't actually going on right now.

Yeah, it's just a joke. No double meaning here, at all.

I think the OP is reading a bit much into this commercial, but I agree that there may be something subliminal there. And they do seem to make Parents and especially grown men appear too stupid, immature and gullible in commercials. They didn't do that back in the 50's and 60's.

What's more upsetting? The idea that kids might rat their parents out for being criminals? Or the very notion of subliminal messages in a commercial? Or is it because they're informing to the government?

Frankly, turning in a crook is exactly what we should be encouraging.

Read it...

"The telescreens (in every public area, and the quarters of the Party's members), hidden microphones, and informers permit the Thought Police to spy upon everyone and so identify anyone who might endanger the Party's régime; children, most of all, are indoctrinated to spy and inform on suspected thought-criminals — especially their parents."

If you think that the OP is reading into this too much, then today's propaganda is working on you just as good as the propaganda used 20,30,50,70 years ago.

It hasn't stopped. If you think it has, then you are not doing a very good job at denying ignorance.

There's only a double meaning there if you think there is a double meaning there


And let this commercial be a lesson to ALL of you! Touch my Mac & Cheese and prepare to suffer the consequences!

Behold, the power of Cheese!

Is the kid really being wronged? Did he work for the money to buy the food? Did he go to the store and purchase it himself? Did he prepare the meal? No, more likely than not his parents did all these things, the very people he's turning against.

Remember, this is being targeted towards children and they react differently to these kinds of things than adults. I'm not saying that kids are going to be truing in their parents over a few bites of food, but think about it. What if I just don't like my Mom's new boyfriend? Maybe I can make him go away, for a long time.

Has there been an increase of parents being arrested because their kids called the police on them? In fact, has any parent been arrested by the hands of their children? Show us some reports, articles, statistics, something. The real question is, how seriously do little kids take Kraft Mac & Cheese commercials? Would they risk losing their parents over it?
