He Is Risen, Yet They Are Dead

Surely, you have seen this commercial for Cadbury’s eggs.


I saw it today. It occurred to me that I’ve been seeing it for about the last twenty years. Easter spirit though these animals might have, they’re all long dead.

In closing: a question. Was there not a giant turtle in this commercial? I remember there being a turtle.

  1. It's weird how commercials like this one and the Hershey Kiss Christmas commercial end up being part of the holiday tradition. I wonder if they'll ever be remade in HD or if their fuzziness adds to the "charm?"

    I also agree that there used to be a turtle in this commercial, but I can't find a video clip. I guess the turtle could still be alive though, right?

    1. He would be the only one who wasn't dust by now.

  2. Wow, that's a downer. lol. You always think of the most interesting things. How do you come up with all this? I remember the turtle. Maybe they took it out because he didn't make any cute "Clucking while making my own animal sound" sound.

      That is a polite, judicious way to comment on the nature of my thought process. Thank you.
