Sidekicks is Made With 25% Less Sodium & Not Everyone's Happy About It

This commercial for the instant dinner Sidekicks is the cutest and/or funniest television commercial I’ve seen in awhile. With 25% less sodium, the company decided to advertise their healthier exclusion by humanizing a salt shaker.

The salt shaker trots down a lone street to the tune of Michael Bolton’s "How am I Supposed to Live Without You" and then the ad ends with a voiceover that states, "Now with 25% less sodium. Not everyone’s happy about it."

Poor little guy. Check out the commercial here for yourself. Stats for Sad Salt Shakers Trending: Older & Buzzing
