1:10 – "If I catch you being afraid of flavor I'm coming to your house and I'm eating all your food"
sounds like you're punishing yourself since their cooking would be… flavorless. 😂

Hey Mccormick – Since you bought the Verizon building and got that traffic light put in, you've RUINED the flow of traffic in the area. It's even worse now because the building is empty. Will somebody PLEASE tell the county to fix the timing?!

BoopisBeepis says:

Found one of these videos as an ad a year or two ago. It was one of the only ads I actually watched all the way through. Keep doing these recipes McCormick, they are great inspiration.
