I hope your prom date wasn't as scandalous as the one in this new "dirty short" for Orbit Gum. In the hilarious if cringe-inducing ad — produced by Will Arnett and Jason Bateman's newly launched DumbDumb venture — Bateman stars as an overprotective dad helping his daughter (Parks and Recreation's Aubrey Plaza) prepare for prom: "These boys, they know how to act all polite, then before you know it, they've got their Facebook all up in your Twitter."
Alas, the date isn't quite who dad expected. This would definitely be most fathers' worst nightmare, overprotective or not. Which makes me wonder: what was your prom date like? Was it a dream date or a nightmare? Please share your best prom date stories below.
It's next to impossible for me to wait in line at the supermarket and not pick up a pack of gum in some limited-edition novelty flavor. That's why I was beside myself when I received a shipment of what might have been a lifetime supply of Wrigley chewing gum in a slew of new flavors. A sore jaw and many packs later, I've discovered a new favorite flavor. Scope out the highlights — and learn whether they're worth buying now.
