Shredded Wheat Commercial: "You Are Bringing Sexy Back"

I'm one to think most commercials are lame. I lose concentration or fall asleep during many of them. On the other hand, this Shredded Wheat commercial caught my attention the other day when I first saw it.

I can't recall a cereal commercial (or advertisement for a similar product) that features an elderly couple and references sex drive. I'm obviously excluding products like Viagra for the purposes of this brief post. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a commercial for a product like Viagra. I was pleasantly surprised to see a Shredded Wheat commercial have some fun by commenting on sex drive and saying "Grannies, bless your heart, you are bringing sexy back." I actually find this funny. The woman looks at her partner and says "Eat up." He returns to his newspaper with a slight smirk on his face. Cheers to Shredded Wheat for having an elderly couple in the commercial and not portraying them as sexless.
