This stuff tastes better than Splenda, but I can't grab it in giant pocketfuls for free at 7-11, so I reflexively hate it. And the song, of course. THE SONG. Gah.
Truvia tastes like icy licorice with a long-lasting raw eggplant aftertaste.
Anyone who needs to put a sweetener on blackberries has neurological damage.
I hadn't even realized that. Every time this commercial comes on (which is a lot for me, because my husband watches one of the many constant Law and Order marathons for much of many evenings) and I have to hear this horrible "music", I have a little seizure. I feel as though my sense of good taste is being raped repeatedly and with out lubricant.
god I hate it so much.
Oh and I'm not being an anti-TV snoot. I just waste time in different ways now.
I still watch TV, but with one exception it's all either downloaded off the internet or streamed from Netflix. So unless your commercial airs during The Venture Brothers, I am not aware of it. Take that, talking Quizno's baby, assuming you're still around!

It's like trying to teach a robot the concept of song and failing miserably.
Robots could do so much better.
Truvia is great, stupid hipster bullshit commercial aside. No non-sugar sweetener really tastes quite as good as sugar (though xylitol and erythritol come close), but unlike artificial sweeteners, this stuff won't give your cancer/kill your digestive bacteria/kill brain cells/etc.
All non-natural sweeteners give you cancer?
I like the stevia-based colas enough (just when you feel like something bubbly), but it still ain't no sugar, agreed.
Someone at a marketing firm saw Juno and it was all downhill from there.
Oh, good, they mentioned skinny jeans.
The tonality isn't nearly so grating as the rhythm and prosody.
I think I'm glad I don't watch TV anymore.

I really didn't think that this was all that annoying. Of course, that's because I don't have a TV so I will never ever see this or think about it again. +1 just to be fair.

I can't wait to see the shit-flinging the "hipster bullshit" tag is going to induce.
I watch TV. :(
Wait...I'm not supposed to like the song? Does that mean I'm a hipster?!?
Thanks to DVR and universal Video On Demand services, the only place I really see commercials is on the internet in this context.
I think some advertisers are just putting whatever dumb shit they want on the air because they know only the elderly and people too poor to buy their products actually watch broadcast television commercials.

The more annoying, the more the product gets moved. Same thing happened with the Freecreditreport guys if you recall. I would forcibly mute and say "FUCK YOU!" every time I saw them, but even so this hugely fat woman at my workplace would be singing their goddamn songs all day.
