Remember when Cheez Balls ghosted us for like, 20 years?
Unlike sidebangs and braces, Cheez Balls were a part of 90s culture we were NOT ready to outgrow. It took nearly two decades, but after much public outcry (and 3-figure bids on eBay for the last cans) - Planters brought our balls back.
We got our balls back, America!
and to celebrate - a radio spot.
NARRATOR: America will never forget the day it lost its balls.
It was the summer of ‘06 when Planters dropped Cheez Balls from its lineup. The streets erupted in violence as every man, woman, and child fought to get their hands on the last balls on Earth -
SXF: Sounds of screams, a mobbing/fighting crowd
POLICE LOUDSPEAKER: MA’AM, DROP THE BALLS AND UNHAND THE CHILD!!
NARRATOR: Our people rallied in protest ...
SXF: Sounds of a march/rally
PROTESTER: NO CHEEZBALLS, NO PEACE! NO CHEEZBALLS, NO PEACE!
NARRATOR: ...and after more than a decade of resistance, Planter’s finally listened.
That’s right, America - we got our balls back. Available for a limited time. Get your hands on some balls, before they’re gone forever...again.
