Do not make the Panda Cheese mascot mad

These Panda Cheese spots from Advantage Marketing in Egypt are a few months old, but there's no sell-by date on the glorious stupidity and mayhem on display. In each vignette, the brand's unpredictable, manic-depressive panda mascot makes folks pay the price for refusing to buy or eat the product. The panda's cloying facial expressions and sudden violent outbursts—with syrupy Muzak playing in the background—stay fresh over the course of five totally addictive commercials. As for the product, it thankfully comes from cows, not pandas. You could probably get arrested for spreading cheese from an endangered species on a Triscuit. Though I must admit, I'm intrigued.
