Actually, This Is the Best Pringles Commercial (Starring Brad Pitt)

By Alexis C. Madrigal

Earlier today, I wrote a story about how Pringles got their name and changed the food industry. I included what I hyperbolically claimed on Twitter was the best commercial ever. Well, I stand corrected.

Andrew Martin, the author of the New York Times' article on Pringles, emailed me about my story and pointed out the stupendous Pringles commercial you see embedded above.

It features a young Brad Pitt totally dismayed at running out of Pringles but luckily within leering distance of some hot babes who just happen to have more Pringles. Apparently, Pringles give him (and the babes) some kind of fever, which requires them to dance with Pringles cans.

At the 22 second mark of the video, Brad Pitt does a stupendous Pringle dance that someone must turn into an animated GIF for the Internet's consumption. It'll be bigger than Cameron Diaz feeding Alex Rodriguez popcorn. Yes, that big.
