The commercial, called "Shoelaces," promotes the company's Graf/X temperature-sensitive kids' shoes and features the Estelle Costanza character from NBC's "Seinfeld." The spot launches today on Nickelodeon and Fox. And hitting stores this week are 6 million packages of Kraft Kool-Aid Bursts that offer a $5 rebate with proofs of purchase of both the Kool-Aid and Graf/X products.
