  1. 1st!
    Enjoy the video everyone. It’s good.

  2. I didn’t know most of this. I only knew about JK Simmons voicing the Yellow M&M. Interesting. Now I kinda want M&Ms but ONLY peanut. I don’t really like any of the others.

  3. Yeah, why don’t they have a movie?

  4. Jeremy G. McLaughlin

    “The Candyman can ’cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good…”

  5. I like those characters, but can’t eat M&M’s, ’cause I’m alergic to them – the tragedy of my life.

  6. The green M&M makes Linkara think things too! Hmmmmm?

  7. I find these characters kind of irritating actually. The only M&M commercial I’ve ever found amusing is the strip poker one.
