I'm about to make a childhood dream come true

I was obsessed with this commercial when I was a little kid and I begged my mom to buy some Tarn-x. She just said no and looked confused. But today I purchased some for myself! I have high hopes.

I was also obsessed with a certain Contac Cold Medicine commercial back in the 1970s. The one where they break open a capsule and the little medicine balls fall out in slo-mo. This isn't the same commercial, but watch the right side of the screen and you can get a sense of how mesmerizing the original was.

I was maybe a little odd as a child.
