This commercial is STILL playing non-stop on the Dance channel, it’s all “Turn the Tub Around” all the time. Here’s the Youtube link, which is super controlled by the company because they all seem to […]

    Poor Megan. This reminds me of the episode of “Will & Grace” when it’s Karen confesses to doing commercials for “Atushi-kan-ki” – the Japanese energy drink chock full of vitamins, minerals, and baby laxatives…

    • Megan Mullally, can go to hell.

      Poor Megan? She’s rich! Nobody’s forcing her to be in this horrible ad campaign. I rather be boiled alive in this crap than eat it.

      I’m sick of gays kissing her ass because she was Karen on Will and Grace. The real Megan Mullally is a dingbat. Look at this ad. She was brilliant on Will and Grace, but that was a character. Karen is not in Megan Mullally.

      Only morons eat margarine. That shit is poison. Megan better not be eating that stuff is she’s really worried about her heart.

      There is enough evidence that margarine is about as healthy as butter, and some studies even show that it’s worse for you.

      Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

      She decided that the money from doing this was worth more to her than annoying the general public with her horrible singing voice. When I first heard it, I thought, “WHO is that awful singer? Is this for real?”

      At least the stud dancing with her is kind of hot. Honestly, someone needs to kick this ad agency to the curb for wasting the client’s money during a recession.

      From the Food Network Humor blog:

      “Frankly, I’d expect this sort of bullshit from Florence Henderson or the Deen Brothers, but not so much from Megan Mullally. The woman should be starring in her own sitcom, not singing harmony as some tool is breakdancing on a giant replica of an I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter lid.”

      Megan, if you’re reading this, you need to apologize to everyone.

      What’s next? Cyndi Lauper doing ads for Country Crock?

    Wow…. that’s ridiculously AWFUL!

    I quit using margarine and that horrid crap in tubs years ago because I realized how awful it is. I’d much rather use butter anyway– it actually HAS flavor, and at least it’s– wait for it — REAL. Margarine and all those other spreads are just like High Fructose Corn Syrup– created in laboratories so that the big corporations could save– and make– money.

    Yeah this definitely causes me to lose a lot of respect for her.

  3. What’s even worse is they are playing it 24 hours a day on repeat on the “Dance” channel here in Chicago. UGH!

      To the comment from Toro Castano, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter isn’t vegan – it has milk products in it. So if “vegan” friends are eating it, they probably aren’t vegan. Also the most popular butter substitute for vegans is Earth Balance as far as I can tell. It is trans fat and cholesterol free, made from a blend of olive oil, palm oil, soy oil etc. Just thought I should straighten that out I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter = Not Vegan. Thanks.

  4. Wow, she must owe a lot of money to her plastic surgeon or someone, or she wouldn’t have done that piece of crap.

    “But, butter isn’t necessarily the healthier alternative. While butter and Margarine have similar caloric values, butter is made from milk fat and is generally is much higher than margarine in saturated fat, which is also known to be detrimental to heart health. Margarine contains small amounts of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, which are generally considered healthier than saturated. According to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, switching from butter to margarine can greatly reduce blood cholesterol levels. Further, not all margarine is created equal. Many brands have developed semi-solid spreads without hydrogenation – and thus, no trans-fat. Most brands that are trans-fat free proudly and prominently state so on their packaging.”

    That is from the source you provided? In which it’s going totally against your argument, and to use research conducted in 1994 doesn’t really hold strong in 2009/2010 especially since it’s whole argument that margarine “Increases heart disease in women by 53%” is based on it containing trans fat, which “I can’t believe it’s not butter” does not?? PLUS it has 70% less saturated fat and less overall fat compared to butter, not to mention the fact it has no cholesterol, which butter again does?

    I really cannot see you hatred or point against margarine, “I can’t believe it’s not butter” in particular, and to call people that use it morons and to tell Megan Mullally to go to hell, I believe to be harsh and unnecessary?

    So for me, in the UK, and I imagine a lot of Americans the smart choice would be “I can’t believe it’s not butter” as it contains less overall fat, considerably less saturated fat and has no cholesterol…..

    I would like to divert your attention to this website: http://www.bigfattruth.org/Home.aspx

    • While I’m more freaked out on the unending play of this horrible commercial on tv rather than the health benefits or woes of margarine, I would like to point out that the http://www.bigfattruth.org/Home.aspx is sponsored my Big Margarine.

    • Hydrogenated fats are poision. Pure and simple. I’ll eat anything from a cow before I eat something from a chemical plant!

    • I had no idea they add coloring also to butter because of the yellow color that’s been given to margarine.

      From Margarine Mayem:

      Once a vegetable oil is hydrogenized, however, a new fat has been created. Such artificially hydrogenated vegetable fats are a recent addition to the diet. The human body has had no experience with them. It seems reasonable to wonder if we have the capacity to deal comfortably with this essentially synthetic food.

      In fact, elaborate statistical analysis of the incidence of heart disease and the consumption of hydrogenated fats in England has shown a dramatic and detailed correlation between the two. Where margarine and solid vegetable shortenings are used in significant quantities, the rate of heart attack is always higher than where they are not.


    • From the Butter Information Council:

      “Butter is no more fattening than margarine. This is an important point. The advertising of margarine has been so powerful and misleading that it is surprising how many people still think margarine has fewer calories than butter. Again, the fat content of butter and margarine are identical.”

    • OMG and margarine can have as much as 40% trans fat! Didn’t they ban trans fats in restaurants in some states?

  6. Uhm so just don’t eat margarine. No need to get all crazy. I eat meat products but I don’t get crazy when famous people pose for PETA ads.

    Do you want me to bake you cookies? I’ll use extra margarine :oP

    • If PETA made an insane ad like this and ran it 24/7, literally on repeat on a single cable channel, squandering the talents of a well-known comedic actress, I’d be mad at them too.

      And the irony here is that margarine is BAD for women, according to that study!

  7. I think it’s awesome. But I’m not going to buy any. I like real butter.

    hm, i did’t know that you were talking about this commercial. I and my sis watched it the other days and almost decided to use it because of all the benefit they was showing. Thank you the post. Going for real butter then. You should have a new portion of the show called “eating healthy with Fausto and Marc”:))

  9. BASboy says:

    Well as long as you don’t read a lot of the text and label information… it is a fun commercial.

    This dance channel you speak of is unknown to me. Your venomous reaction to this commercial and the debatable health risks/benefits of this SPECIFIC margarine product (remember that all margarines are not identical) seems way out of proportion to the realities of the the impact of this product. The way you went on about this made it sound like the Nazi party of food products with women being the Jews. Shouldn’t you also be condemning any celebrity who endorses any product made with High Fructose Corn Syrup which is truly doing outrageous damage to public health?

    I personally only eat butter, and agree with you that butter is better for you if you must have a fat source. Over all I try to keep my use of butter down. But relax a bit, take a few breaths, put down the gun before you hurt Megan Mullally, she isn’t exactly a serial killer and you seem to be ready to string her up in the public square and rip her insides out with your bare hands over her doing a commercial.
