I can't be the only person who wants to shove the little brother off of his chair. What the h*ll is his purpose in this commercial, anyway? All he does is repeat the last few words his brother just said. I know he's just a little kid, but when he starts clapping and talking about saving on Mac and cheese, I feel like its time to strap on his helmet and put him on the short bus.

Yes, the little brother is annoying. But what I hate most about this ad is something different.

If you are going to use coupons at all, Why are you using them on boxed macaroni and cheese??? Try to use them on something nutritious at least.

I hate this commercial - it almost sounds like the little one's voice is fake or something.....

"Even he can do it", big bro says about little bro---as a disclaimer on the screen says that little bro cannot do it.

Thank you for bringing this one up. It was number one on my list of things to look for on Youtube so I could post it. Both kids are annoying as hell and the little one might as well keep his mouth full of mac and cheese so he can't talk.

Are 2 little boys their age really going to be on such a website while eating? Why isn't mom worried about getting nasty germs off the laptop?

Tiz, she is just going to douse it with Lysol afterwards - and then she'll call it "healthing"..... blah.

Short-time reader, first-time poster here. Thought I'd chime in.

The shots in this commercial aren't necessarily in chronological order in present time (big brother narrates over a cut-away where he's silently watching the mother access the computer), but I'm surprised that the boys are ready for more mac and cheese by the end of the commercial. They started with nearly full bowls of it. And I don't think little brother ever peeled himself away from the computer to eat.

No wonder mom is having trouble affording the stuff; it's disappearing. ("It's disappearing", echoes little brother).

buying generic mac and cheese for your kids to offest the cost of that ludicrously overpriced underpowered unupgradable walled garden mac airbook? sounds legit. also i agree that the younger kids voice sounds artificially "cute" and is highly aggrivating
