Subject: Looking for a commercial

Written By: Vanessa on 08/06/02 at 08:25 a.m.

There's this commercial that I remember word for word but can't remember what it was for. †It starts with a bunch of kids hanging out and one girl who looks like Molly Ringwald says, " I hate my mother, she's so much prettier than I am" †another girl asks, "your mother?" another girl says, "Have you ever seen her mother? †A guy on a skateboard say, "I have, I'm hoping she'll be divorced by the time I'm 23". †The Molly Ringwald girl says, "I found a few pictures of her from when she was my age" †A guy asks "was she hot?" †The girl replies, "No, she was plain, with freckles and a little bit overweight" †A girl says, "kinda like you?" †and the Molly Ringwald girl smiles and says, "exactly like me". †Does anyone remember this or have a clue to what it was for? †Any help would be appreciated. †

I donít remember the commercial, but it sounds a lot like those Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints spots you see once in a while. It could also have been a public service announcement sponsored by a local church or some local organization, particularly one that has programs to help teens deal with life.

You might look along those lines.

Oh My Gawd!!!  I remember that commercial!!  "I hate my mother, she's so much prettier than me".  I think it WAS Molly Ringwald...if not then it was her clone.

Now I'm not gonna sleep....what was it for???  I'll ask my sister.

Well I'm almost certain that it wasn't for Chruch of Latter Day Saints. I think it was some type of jeans, though I could be way off here.
