I don't know what to make of these commercials.  I'm not even sure what my opinion of them is.  The first time I saw one, my reaction was "What the hell??!"  I guess I like watching 'em like I like watching the aftermath of a car crash.  I'm not even sure if anyone outside of California gets them.  
 
Here's the first one in the series (hapless bum becomes over-the-top 70's-style rock star when angel comes down and gives him electric guitar filled with milk): 
 
 
 
The website for this ad campaign is just as over-the-top:

Growth hormone, maybe?
 
Have you seen them before, Big Momma?  I think the Got Milk campaign is national, but at the end of the commercial, there's something in print about the California Milk Advisory Board.  So, I don't know.

I was planning to bring up this ad last night but didn't get around to it.  It's really bizarre but I'm not surprised because a lot of the "Got Milk" commercials are strange.  I happened to visit the advertising agency that does these commercials in San Francisco.  They must be doing something right - they had over 300 Clio and other awards in their lobby. 

They also have a MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/whitegoldiswhitegold
The songs are fairly decent.  I wonder why the milk industry is so desperate for business that they have to do a full on advertising campaign.

Funny you should say that.  The California Cheese Council (or something like that) has their own ad campaign whose slogan is  "Great cheese comes from happy cows".

Yeah, I wonder about that, too.  It's not like they're competing with anyone.

Maybe they're competing with people who drink soy milk?!?  It's just a bizarre commercial and the glam rock music seems to appeal to hipsters.  When I think of milk drinkers, children and older adults come to mind.

There ya go.  Maybe they want to appeal to the hipsters who you don't normally think of as being milk drinkers.  A white gold star and a gallon of milk for blast-off girl!!

This commercial is driving me crazy.

The white gold guy has those bugged-out eyes that I hate, and he's a freakin' mess.  He looks like a has-been rock-and-roller, and the "White gold is" is just beyond annoying.  Go away!!!
