Yogurt + Yummy Flavors=Richard Simmons?

Last night, I allowed myself to indulge in a TV marathon, as the season premieres of both Ugly Betty and Grey's Anatomy were tonight. Three uninterrupted hours of television. It was great until Grey's got ridiculous, but the commercials were almost as good as the shows [you know, except for that time when Christina and Meredith and Izzy did that ridiculous thing at Seattle Grace]. My favorite:

Richard Simmons: fitness guru, 80s icon/relic, butt of countless jokes. The man just doesn't stop. I was really surprised to see him in this commercial because Yoplait doesn't usually resort to insane devices and because, well, come on. It's Richard Simmons. Where has he been? What has he been doing? Whatever it was, he's been doing it with all the free yogurt his abs, buns, and thighs can handle.

  3. Richard Simmons is SO annoying! I wonder if he's that chipper off camera or if the off-the-charts hyperactivity is just a facade.
