  • Mentos is known as "The Freshmaker" but a new ad campaign by the company famous for its brand of mints is asking the residents of Singapore to become baby makers.

    "Why are you eating a mint, baby?" "So I can kiss you on the face."

    Those are the opening words of a three-minute YouTube video by Mentos that asks Singaporeans to "make a little human that looks like you and me" and "make Singapore's birthrate spike."
