I LOATHE the Halos commercials. It's in the same vein as the Kraft Mac & Cheese commercials: bratty kids thinking that the advertised items are theirs and not to be touched by the people who bought it for them, i.e., their parents.
Each ad starts off with the parents about to nom on an orange and their little brat comes out of nowhere with a pissed-off look and arms crossed. The parents ask if it's okay if they have a Halo or two and the kid answers in a snotty tone, "I don't know, it's it all right if you [do some kidlike thing that apparently society has deemed adults can't do]?" And the parent acquiesces to the kid!
I would love to see one of those commercials end with the parent knocking the kid to the floor with a swift backhand and telling them that yes, it's all right if they eat oranges while wearing superhero jammies and play in the sprinklers in their underwear because they're the adults who work and pay for everything. They were only asking as a courtesy. Until you bring in a paycheck, nothing is actually yours and until you adjust that attitude, don't bank on getting anything for birthdays and Christmases.
