    The first time I watched this, Pepe's inspired bit of randomness cracked me up. It reminded me of "I have some loose jello, ok," but even weirder.

    The second time I watched it, Kermit's face reacting to Pepe cracked me up even more. :)

    I've also decided to respond to everything with "I have a magic potato, okay..."

    Mariah Carry: I have NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING if I don't have yooooouuu....
    Pepe: I have a magic potato, okay...

    Martin Luther King: I have a dream!
    Pepe: I have a magic potato, okay...

    I want a magic potato more than I want the backpack!

    Does anyone know if you can buy the backpack anywhere or is it unique to Cravendale?

    AAAH! That's what it is! It's been bugging me since I saw it. I thought it was weird and random at first... then I thought Pepe or someone did that before somewhere. I was thinking of the "I brought Paper Towels" line from Lew in GMC, then I thought... can't be that.

    Brilliant commercial... I hope they do more.

    I like to think that there are loads of alternate takes to this...

    "I've got a bottle of hairspray, okay."

    "I've got a bag of Dorettos, okay."

    "I've got a pair of galoshes, okay."

    It really just shows that there is something inherently funny (to me) about Pepe. He can just about say or do anything and it makes me laugh. Mostly because my brain can't quite fathom the brain-process behind his actions, I think. Some rational part of my mind is always building explanations for the actions of Muppets...but with Pepe the right and left sides just get confused and it results in laughter from me.

    Just been working on a few of these...

    Show me.

    Part of it's the "okay." I don't know why it's funny, but he can say just about anything, tack an "okay" on it, and it gains comic value. Also, you really need to find a way to get the above post out on the internet at large and start a meme. :)

    Haha. I tried to build a Tumblr (http://pepepotatoes.tumblr.com/) but it keeps not working...

    I've also put a couple on Memebase (link)

    This better the heck be the next Internet Meme

    I've just started a Tumblr account for it here: http://pepepotatoes.tumblr.com/ .

    But most of them don't work on Meme base because they put their logo over the punchline because its too low down. I'll keep creating them until I get bored. :p Feel free to share them on Facebook or Twitter or Tumblr or wherever.

    I've been looking today, and they don't sell 2l bottles of Cravendale anywhere near where I live (only 1l bottles, and they aren't included in the deal, I guess that's the down side of living in rural Wales). So even if I could think of someone to give 20 bottles of milk, I can't get the backpack :(

    My niece and I both drink Cravendale at home anyway, but we're only likely to save enough codes for 1 backpack between us. I think expecting people to get through 20 large cartons is a heck of a lot!

    Great advert though!!!;)
