This Mentos Commercial Spoof Features Horses Instead of Humans

Classic advertisements from the 90s get a much needed parodying with the Mentos spoof commercial.

The commercial is a parody of the classic ads released by mint maker Mentos that would often feature participants completing an out-of-the-ordinary task to have a little fun. That gets taken to a whole other level with this comedic spin where the main characters dawn oversized horse head masks.

The basketball playing horses laugh at their friend off on the sidelines who is dressed in a business suit. The teased horse-headed companion takes the shoes off of a nearby homeless person and begins to play. Surprised, the other horsemen underestimate his proud confidence and are in shock when he performs a slam dunk. The hilarious viral video is finished off in the fashion of real Mentos commercials with a satisfied customer winking and showing off the secret to their success -- a pack of mints.
