I have no video but let me describe it.

We have a scene in the arctic where an Eskimo is drinking water from his hands that are dipped into the water. Then out of no where a lady with a bottle comes in saying "Yoo Hoo". She then exclaims that the water in the bottle is from a drinking fountain in the mall. The Eskimo takes a drink and smiles. Then the announcer goes on to say water from anywhere can be pure. The bottle has a filter inside that cleans out the impurities.

What bugs me about this commercial is the way the lady talks, it's way too sweet,it bugs the sh*t out of me.
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

Ugh that lady bugs the crap out of me as well.  Leave the poor Eskimo alone, woman!

I can't believe it took this long to get around to this commercial.  It is really dumb; poor Eskimo just looks at her like she's an alien.
A new study finds that people who are chipper & happy live longer. Which is surprising because people who aren't chipper & happy want to kill people who are always chipper & happy. David Letterman

I simply don't get this commercial.  And the woman annoys me too!

I bet what the Eskimo is thinking during all this is "Hey, that's not a bottle of Yoo-Hoo!", and the reason he's smiling is because "at least this doesn't taste like polar bear piss...."

No one is bugged by the way she says "fow-nun" instead of "fountain"?

I've been annoyed by it, but too lazy to pen it. 
So, what, she just walked over from Mall of America to an Alaskan Eskimo in Alaska?
Or maybe the Anchorage mall?

ConfusedNo no no, MM00! NO self-respecting MallMom would say "YooHoo!"
I just don't know WHO tossed her out onto the frozen tundra and took off...maybe Alaska is like Nebraska (you know - where parents got in the habit playing 'dump & run' with their children), or like the woods (where idiots take their unwanted pets and ditch them); maybe, in Alaska, you can walk the wife 20 feet from the car and then suddenly remember 'you forgot something in the front seat' and bolt, while she goes to meet the natives.
If MissyDWolf ever says "YooHoo!" and prances off, it will happen in Alaska, during our only trip there. 
 
Agreed about the weirdness of this commercial; it simply had to come from 'The Twilight Zone'.

Not to change the subject, but I could never GET Yoo-Hoo. 
It's not chocolate milk, it's chocolate water. Dead

That's what I always called it---chocolate water.  I, however, like it.  Haven't had any in about ten years, though.

TongueIf it is good enough for Yogi Berra (HOF Yankees catcher), it is good enough for me.
All the same...I think YooHoo folks paid him to lie - they always said it was made with 99% fat-free milk (I believe they forgot the milk).

Wikipedia lists all the flavors Yoo Hoo has come in.  Most are discontinued, including Coconut (Mmmmmm...) and Licorice Merlot (not so Mmmmmm...).
 
Some other d/c'd flavors that sound good:
 
Chocolate-orange
Chocolate-mint
Chocolate-apricot

Her family left her on an ice floe for the polar bears.  They went to Disney to celebrate getting rid of her annoying voice.

I think the secret ingredient is a touch of white-out.  Thanks, Mike Nesmith's mom.  Clap

It seems like this commercial runs about 20 times an hour on MSNBC!  I am happy that this actress is making a fortune in national commercial residuals...BUT i really hate the commercial and her "Yoo hoo!"

I keep waiting for a version where the Eskimo just grabs her and drowns her in the water.

Do people still say Yoohoo? I mean my grandmother does, but she's 93 years old too. Do non-elderly people actually still say that outside of TV?

I find it stupid that he just blindly drinks water from some stranger out of a bottle....Dead  It could have been poisoned water for all he knew!
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.
