And judging by the similarities which the commercial poses to “Ecstacy”, “Daybreak”, and to a lesser extent “Dinky Bird”, it’s easy to understand why.

  1. The audio could have been enhanced a bit also… with echoes fading out at the end….. and no, I’m not on Acid……. 9-2-09

  2. Who ever did this video, it is fantastic. I have Daybreak on my wall. The first time I saw this commercial I about crapped my diapers being a Parrish lover……….

  3. Nestle’s should have contacted the MP family BEFORE they made this. MP might have gone with it……. None the less, the commercial has its haunting beauty that…. I cannot resist.
