The Eggchange between Eggan and Cadbury’s
So as me and my girlfriend sat down to watch the eggs-factor, we saw a commercial that caused us a lot of concern and upset. It was completely uneggspected. It was the Cadbury’s Goo Games advert, if you haven’t seen it yet then please see below
As you can imagine, we was deeply distressed at the idea of innocent eggs being harmed in the making of this commercial, I mean it was like watching the opening scene of saving private ryan eggcept with eggs. We felt it was completely uneggseptable. So I decided to take it upon myself as a responsible egg to eggspress my concern.

I am writing to you today concerning a recent television commercial I have seen for your Cadbury’s Creme eggs, called the Goo games. I am personally eggstremely fond of Creme eggs, with my girlfriend being a proud Creme egg herself; so I am sure you can imagine our shock and distress when we sat down to watch ‘Eggs factor’ and saw as numerous Creme eggs were thrown into the air, blown up, popped and smashed whilst eggsclaiming in their final breaths, “gooo”.
As a young egg, I was constantly attempting to avoid being cracked, beaten, whisked, fried, scrambled or boiled and I had to watch as my family was taken from me and turned into a nutritious and key part of a full English breakfast. It was a highly traumatic eggsperience and is the driving force behind my ‘save the eggs’ campaign.
Believe me; I enjoy a good yolk as much as the next egg, but that is taking it to the eggstreme. My girlfriend and I are planning on having little mini Creme eggs of our own one day, and I dream of them growing up in a world where they do not have to worry about persecution or eggsecution. I feel it is therefore highly socially irresponsible of Cadbury’s to glorify and endorse the discrimination of eggs of any kind!
I greatly look forward to your response and thank you very much for your time.

I was eggstremely surprised when a member from the Cadbury’s Creme Egg team got back in contact with me. Juan-Egg got back in touch with me very quickly and eggsplained the campaign.

Thank you for your egg-mail. I read with egg-streme concern about your distress at seeing our ‘goo games’ creme egg ads and wish to draw to your eggtention that the ultimate in pleasure for a creme egg is to release his goo.
Creme eggs realize that they’re very best bit is the yummy white and yellow fondant and they just want to release it to the world so please be re-egg-sured that no eggs were harmed in the making of these ads.
Please visit our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/cadburycremeegg where you can help more creme eggs reach their ultimate aim in life and release their goo!
Thanks and goo-dbye

Thanks to Cadbury’s quick response and reeggsurrance, me and Eggily felt far better about the commercial and advised Cadbury’s that, should they ever require any eggsperience from a egg, to give me a call.
Thank you very much for your response, I feel reeggsured that no harm came to any eggs and will eggsplain to my fellow eggs that the campaign was meant with good intentions, if not slightly misguided in its eggsectution.
I fully agree with you about Creme eggs being eggseptional, with my Creme egg girlfriend Eggily easily being the most sweet and scrumptious egg in the world. And we recently found out we have a mini Creme egg on the way which has made us both very eggstatic. I’ll be sure to send you a photo when the little one arrives.
If in the future you require any advice from an eggsperienced egg for your campaigns, I am happy to eggstend a helping hand so as not risk any condemnation from eggs worldwide.
I have also made sure to like the facebook page and will be sure to send my fellow eggs to the page from http://www.facebook.com/savealleggs.
