Jack in the Box Commercial (2010) - Popcorn - 3 for $3

Popcorn is a 2010 Jack in the Box commercial advertising the "3 for $3" deal.

Description[]

Jack Box and his wife Cricket are at a movie theater buying a bucket of popcorn, two soft drinks, and licorice. A young, sullen cashier informs them the cost is $22.50. Jack is outraged, calling the price "insane." Cricket tries to get him to calm down, but Jack protests "it's not even a meal!" while the cashier remains silent and unapologetic. Jack extolls the virtues of his new "3 for $3" deal, where customers can pick "three tasty items" (the items shown in the B-roll footage are small fries, onion rings, a 20oz soft drink, a hamburger, a cheeseburger, a chicken sandwich, mini-churros, and an eggroll), allowing them to "fill up" for just $3 (plus tax). Later, Cricket and Jack are tearing up during their movie as a melodramatic score plays. Cricket notices Jack is crying and remarks he's "just a big softie." Jack, however, claims he is still sad about the popcorn ordeal as a single teardrop moves down his face.
