I know people worry that kids mimic what they see on the television. All that running, jumping and climbing trees… no wait, I meant all that fighting, punching and acting too grownup. I somehow inserted the wrong description in there.
Point is, doesn’t it sometimes seem like TV imitates life? Or at least is inspired by the weird and wonderful things that kids do?
Take the old, old show called Tom and Jerry for instance. A cat and mouse trying to outdo each other, always up to mischief. Why, that describes real-life naughty kids quite perfectly.
Many will empathize when they see these examples. You’ve done this once or your kids are always pulling such pranks. Kind of like waiting until you are on the phone to start the “I saw this toy first” tug-of-war.
Here’s probably how someone got the idea for extreme makeovers.
What do you need when you are sleepy at work? What do you seek for when you are playing basketball and chewing something makes you focus? What do you look for when you realised your breath is not exactly “fresh”?
Yeap! You need a chewing gum. Chewy, minty, flavoury and in some way, cool. Chewing gums has been around for ages! In fact, during the olden times, people started chewing on leaves and plants. That is way, way back then. OK, Let’s not get too far now.
One of the first chewing gums I ever chewed on is Extra chewing gum. It has been around since 1984, making its name as the first sugar-free chewing gum in the market. Recently, I saw Extra’s TV commercial and I simply love it! Then I searched in Youtube for more of the similar ads and I got seven of it!
