People bubbled with spearmint Bubble Yum and thought it was funny (Bubble Gum Weekend)

It's spearmint!

It's spearmint gum!

It's spearmint bubble gum! Thus its mere existence is funny.

Remember when the Bubble Yum wrapper used big, bubbly lettering? Remember when they had a spearmint flavor? Remember when people bubbled big, green bubbles with it?

Back around 1978, Bubble Yum aired a memorable commercial for its spearmint flavor. People in the commersh bubbled and laughed uncontrollably about it...

A brief synopsis in case you're afraid the bubbles in the ad will expand out of your screen and engulf you: The ad included a group of adults at a boring party. A woman sticks toothpicks into pieces of spearmint Bubble Yum and arranges them on a plate - like they're hors d'oeuvres. The woman's husband laments, "The party's dying and you're playing with Bubble Yum."

But all is well, because partygoers grab up all the beegee and blow bubbles that pop all over their faces.

Because I'm sure that's all you do when you go to parties with other mature, intelligent people.
