Oh hey that's not too horri
WHY WOULD YOU THINK THIS IS ACCEPTABLE

I have no idea how these people convinced me to use their product. I used to watch the "sassy gay friend" Youtube videos until they started shilling this stuff during the episode. They went from entertaining to infomercials for this product, which is frustrating since they were otherwise so enjoyable.
"Ophelia so bad for yourself step away from the water!"
"This is a setup but you don't realize it because your brain is made out of rib."

I really like this product, but I may stop buying it based on this alone.

this, like so many things, seems to me to be America's sad attempt at recreating something originally edgy and weird, in this case the Orangina furry ads.
stars for banal evil and horrifying character design
That's the first thing I thought of.
But the Orangina ads were perplexing and mildly unsettling. These furries are just annoying.

Everything about this ad is designed to pander to hideous people, and the furries aren't even the worst of them.

I'm trying to figure out what the furry response to the camel will be:
1. Those are sick! The tits on anthro camels are on the FRONT!
2. Say, hump-tits... that's a great idea!
3. I PUT IT IN BIG LETTERS ON EVERY ONE OF MY DEVIANTARTS: DO NOT STEAL!!! BASTARDS!!!

I really wish they wouldn't mix anthropomorphism and sexuality like that. We joke about furries, but really, it sucks that some people are going to live their entire lives in a world where the sex they want is completely impossible. It was bad enough when it was just innocent characters like Gadget from Rescue Rangers, but how many people are going to be stuck with a shitty fetish when it's intentionally sexual imagery interrupting your TV viewing with surprise anthro cleavage?
The product itself is pretty good, for example if you work at an office with a water cooler but not a full-sized refrigerator. This commercial is trying to sell to people so douchey, they defy taxonomic classification.
Who exactly IS the target demographic? Perverts who think plastic surgery is brilliant?
MIO is pretty sweet though, get a bottle of that and you've got delicious movie drinks that are easy to sneak in for a month.
Also a good alternative to soda when you eat out. I don't know about where you guys live, but around Fort Worth, the water is so terrible in parts that a it can practically ruin a meal out if the restaurant doesn't filter their tap water. Granted, a slice of lemon has the same effect, sure, but I'll be damned if that strawberry-watermelon isn't delicious.
Like Kennydra and Bort said though, after this add, I may be going back to lemon slices.
The target demographic seems to be people who think they are classy but are too cheap to order an actual drink in a bar. So, gigantic douchenozzles.
Whom they should be marketing to:
- office workers
- people trying to cut caffeine and sodium out of their diets
- people who dislike the amount of plastic that goes into a two-liter bottle
- people who get sick of lugging two-liter bottles around
I dont use energy drinks, but they also make an energy mio that beats the fuck out of drinks like monster in terms of nutrition. Plus it's the cost one one can. It would probably be an easy pitch to cubicle dwellers, late shifters, or the kinds of people that go to LAN parties or nerd conventions.
Actually, 86 that last one. Now that I think about the LAN party crowd, I don't think frugalness or their health matters as much to them as asking their buddies if they'd like to try their bawls.

That giraffe has a person face.
Who thought that was a good idea.
Parker Posey and Sarah Jessica Parker.

You sell artificial flavors, sweeteners, and colors sold to folks whose diets are so out of whack they can't enjoy water, and they call you a hero.
But sexualize one little cartoon giraffe...

Try a tiny squirt of the orange-tangerine in your Swiss Miss some time. You're welcome!

Come on, seriously. Is anyone really offended, amused or otherwise interested in this?
Mio is a really good taste with a slightly unpleasant chemical aftertaste. Goes nice with club soda and ice. It's especially good if you want a diet drink that is neither diet coke nor diet pepsi.
Now, here's the skinny: MIO Energy is an amazing buzz. That shit winds you up like a model airplane propeller.
