Weird Soylent ad


#1

#2

It made me laugh out loud, so it has that going for it.


#3

It’s another step In the attempt to back down from the idea that really alienated people from Soylent – The idea that Soylent is at war with food. The ad itself is fine, but the overall message is perfect: After you’ve done your traditional Thanksgiving stuffing, Soylent is what you can do to recover.

Yeah the astronaut was a dead giveaway


#6

I’m confused. This makes traditional turkey dinner look waaaaay more appealing than Soylent.

EDIT: Just remembered that Thanksgiving in the US is in November. Makes way more sense now: enjoy your spent-all-day-cooking turkey dinner, then go back to the simplicity of Soylent. If I saw this in October I wouldn’t be so confused :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m glad to see they’re getting more use out of that astronaut uniform.


#8

Just for the Christmas season, I’m considering replacing my Soylent with eggnog. That wouldn’t hurt, would it?


#9

I would think it should be fairly easy to flavor Soylent like eggnog. Sugar, nutmeg, vanilla, maybe some cinnamon, and if that’s not quite enough, just a couple egg whites or a dab of heavy cream could help match the texture without screwing with the nutrient profile too much.

We try to take it to most events we go too.


#11

I would skip the sugar. Use powered egg whites nutmeg and a touch of brandy

They work. I discovered Soylent via one of those in front of the video Youtube ads, the one where the guy is stranded on the island. I had been thinking about a simple one stop meal replacement for a while but never bothered to look into it until that add. I’ve been on 99.99% 2.0 and water ever since.

So their advertising works!

Good, good. I like this idea.
