HollyRock brought this up in another forum, but this commercial has officially gotten on my nerves, so here we are. The robot's voice sounds eerily similar to the infamous Big Mouth Billy Bass from the recent McDonalds Filet-o-Fish campaign.

...must be a regional brand; I've never heard of Chi Chi's. Oh, you live in Washington DC. Here in Texas, we would probably call that "chunky marinara"... LOL  Smile

The robot with the egg-shaped head reminds me of the Terrence & Phillips characters from Southpark. Ick.

Pace picante used to be a regional brand, but I think they might be nationally distributed since they were bought out by Campbell Soup co.  Here's their classic commercials...

Chi Chi's used to be a midwestern Mexican chain that went under after a bunch of people got food poisoning at one of its restaurants in suburban Pittsburgh.  I can't believe they're still using the name to sell salsa, but they are.

What's funny is that I've seen this commercial over the past few days, and couldn't remember if I posted about it - thought I might have LOL

It bothers me that I currently find this one to be very funny.

We had Chi-Chi's here in Massachusetts as far back as the 80's, and I was unsure if the whole chain had gone under, or not.  The one closest to me closed at least 10 years ago, I think.

I think it was at some point during its third airing yesterday that it crossed my "fingernails on a chalkboard" threshold. It hasn't, however, reached my "desperately reach for the TV remote's mute button" line, which the Listerine swishing commercials have long since passed.

Piccata!

What I'm wondering is: if they don't mean to let him have anything, why is the robot sitting at the dinner table?

oh...this one bugs me - poor folks are lacking creativity, from my perspective.
Nope, I don't care for it...not one bit.

We had a Chi Chi's..wondered why it went under.

I do remember a very funny joke though.  The punch line was "death by Chi Chi!"

Anyone know that one?

Eating at Chi-Chi's in Michigan is a very fond memory I have as a kid growing up we went at least once every 2 weeks.  I loved the food and it was alway a very fun time for me and my sister.

The "mexican fried ice cream" is what I'll always associate with Chi Chi's restaurant commercials (I never dined there).

This commercial is retarded...I don't get the cyborg angle at. all.  Really, is that the only way you could think to advertise your salsa??? Disapprove
 
And those Pace commercials, I remember them from my childhood.  Funny thing though is that salsa is a Mexican food, yet those cowboys are touting San Antonio, TX as the place where people know how to make it right.  And immigration jokes aside, San Antonio is not Mexico!
Is visa really the only card accepted at [INSERT ANY SPORTING EVENT]???
