Sun-Maid Raisin Girl Gets Xtreme Facial Peel

Sun-Maid raisins eponymous heroine got a face-lift after 90 years on the job. She now hefts genetically modified grapes as well, a grape bunch bigger than her head. She holds them up with the muscle strength hidden inside her new, ample bosom. Mattel’s failed “Teen Barbie’s Incest Child” doll was said to be the model for the makeover.

Mmm… Raisins!

Check out the new commercial here. Nothing says “natural sun-kissed fruits” like slick computer graphics.

    “Sun-Maid raisins, now with twice the Latina!”

    It’s interesting to me that the new PC spokesymbol color is light brown. Betty Crocker got the makeover a few years back, and now the Sun-Maid raisin chick. The little Morton Salt girl is blonde; I wonder how they’ll pull the conversion on her? And will they lighten Aunt Jemima’s skin tone?

    for some reason all the commercial did was bring out the horrendousness of that bonnet, whereas on the box i didn’t notice it as much.

    oh, and now i am somehow scared to ever eat raisins again.

  4. Looks like something the lifeless animation division at Dreamworks pumped out while taking a break from Shrek 3. Maybe she’ll make a hilarious cameo with the Gingerbread Man. They’ll have raisin cookie babies.

  5. This commercial is awesome! . . . seven years ago. Honestly, that is some lousy CGI animation. There are better cut scenes in video games.

    …..Her 45 SPF sunblock was no match for the depleted ozone layer in the expensive Adobe software. Her next makeover will show skin cancer, mark my words!

    …..I haven’t eaten rasins in decades, not since the supermarkets started having fresh seedless grapes year-round!

    There’s something wildly unappetizing about watching the grapes convert themselves into raisins.

    Then there’s an awkward moment at the end where she’s just kind of staring at you, as though expecting some sort of reaction.

    Who approves this crap?
