Not really - it's just supposed to make you remember/recognize their brand.  Advertising is...counter-intuitive.

Yeah, that stuff doesn't work for me.

I'm more likely to avoid this brand now, if I ever remember it.

EAT THE ICE CREAM! 

 

Thats just creepy, and it does not make me want to eat ice cream. They should fire their advertising agency.

Marc Leishman mentioned "The Nothing Box". Didn't know what that was. Now I do.

 

I can't think of nothing. Even when I'm doing nothing but watching TV I often have to rewind to watch parts again because I get involved in a train of thought. Or I have to re-read a paragraph when reading a book because I'm imagining some scenario or thinking about something else.

I sometimes wish I could think of nothing.

5 minutes of daily practice...you could have it down in a month. ;-)

I can't do five seconds of it. It's like trying to not think of an elephant.

This is one of the best commercials I’ve ever seen. The less you know about it going in, the better.

Meh. I still think it sucks if their goal is to sell their ice cream. It failed on me, anyway. I will actively avoid such ice cream.

Apparently Halo Top is very popular:
