Talking Sandwich

Orange Juice.

There’s no particular name for this character so let’s call him the Talking Sandwich, cause that’s what he is a talking sandwich. The commercial opens with a teen opening a fridge and began to sneeze. The sandwich then says the word Orange Juice. The kid didn’t understand what he meant by it, so the sandwich explains to him that every time he hears someone sneeze he says orange juice because the drink helps fight off colds if you keep you fluids up. The kid then says “Why couldn’t we get a dog?”, but the sandwich heard his comment upon the fridge door closing. The commercial closes with the logo for Florida Oranges. I never once heard anyone talk about this character so he’s more than perfect to be on this blog. I even found a little background on the sandwich. It turns out the sandwich was created by the Character Shop company. That’s right the same people behind the animatronic animals for the Budweiser Frog commercials. The sandwich itself is a radio controlled animatronic with foam latex bread and silicone lettuce, ham, tomato, cheese, olive and pimento replicas. The commercial was directed by Bob Rice, who might have an IMDB credit but his is unconfirmed, so I supplied a link below for you to figure out which is the real Bob Rice. It’s less complicated than knowing which Jim Johnson is a voice actor when there’s more than 40 of them. The one thing that did slip my mind whenever I watch this commercial is according to the kid, they own a talking sandwich as a pet hinting his “Why couldn’t we get a dog” quote. My opinion is it’s cooler to own a talking sandwich than owning a dog. Unless the sandwich reminds you to keep drinking orange juice to fight off colds, which could annoy certain people. To this day I still think of the Talking Sandwich every time I drink orange juice. I was lucky to find a commercial of it on youtube for all of you to enjoy. For next week, I’ll be doing a subject on a 70s toy line called the Shogun Warriors.

Update Mar. 31, 2012: Apparently there’s a second commercial consisting of the dad talking to the sandwich. Enjoy the commercial below.
