  1. Isn’t a kiss traditional at the doorstep? Clearly he is not trying to kiss her — but something far more intimate.

    Wouldn’t this make more sense if they were on the couch in the living room?

  3. Sometimes the Hamburger Helper glove gives an “okay” sign at the end of the commercials. In this case the female glove gives the sign at the end of the date indicating that she had a swell time, and the male glove mistakes it as his cue to go for the old playground hand gesture for sex. So yes, the male Hamburger Helper glove is indeed getting a mixed signal from his female counter part.
