Peeps Want You to Ride the Metro!

The Washington Area Metro Transit Authority has enlisted Peeps to remind you to take the Metro to the new Nationals Ball Park. In the below video, can you guess who will win a race to Nationals Park--the Metro savvy Peeps or Stubborn Pink Peep who "doesn't do" Metro and drives his car?

As Stubborn Pink Peep circles the Ball Park in a vain search of a parking space, his purple and green Peep pals take Metro to the Navy Yard Metrorail station and find that all escalators are miraculously working and then totally annoy the other 24,000 Peeps expected to take Metro by standing on the right AND left as they exit the station.

Let's hope the Peeps do not drink and smoke during the game!

Doesn't that totally violate the whole "no food" thing on the Metro? Or are Peeps actual living rabbits, that are just sweet and chewy? I wonder if Metro will create videos for every holiday. Next up, my buddies, the Passover Gummy Bears attempt to use Metro to get to the Cherry Blossom Festival.

Well as long as they are Kosher gummy bears...

Very true. I eat Gummy Bears every day at work (excellent dietary supplement and FYI they are on sale this week at CVS for 88 cents!), but not once did I ever question the cashier if CVS gummy bears were made with fish gelatin. You'd think the would let people know. I might need some refunds...
