Theorists, I'm guessing most of you have seen at least one M\u0026M commercial in your life. From the classic Santa is real one that's been circulating for YEARS or more modern versions, one thing is clear. Those M\u0026Ms are being EATEN! I'm not just talking about being eaten by the humans in the commercials, the M\u0026Ms are eating each other! Yet, I'm not sure that means they are committing cannibalism... Why? Watch to find out!

    The red and orange m&ms might not be guilty but the yellow one is, in the commercial where he was “eating his own kind” there was peanuts in his bag. Which would mean even though yellow is technically eating his “clothes like the others, he’s also eating peanuts. In conclusion, yellow is the one guilty.

    Wait but doesn’t that make only yellow and Orange cannibals because they specifically in the commercial are eating m&ms with their “organs” inside because in the anatomy you showed the peanuts and pretzels as part of said anatomy. But, then again the pretzel was shown as a sentient being that was inserted into orange. So, does that same apply to yellow. I don’t know anymore.

    I’m pretty sure there like potato heads because the nuts and stuff is EMBEDED in the chocolate and they can move the eyebrows that are floating ABOVE the shell and eye itself

    • Nickolas Coelhon
      Nickolas Coelhon

      So he’s right or wrong depending on how you look at it

    • Nickolas Coelhon
      Nickolas Coelhon

      But it could be argued they are not alive because they can’t move talk eat or see

    • Nickolas Coelhon
      Nickolas Coelhon

      Also technically they are cannibals or at least the ones with stuff embedded are because they are eating there own dna

    • Nickolas Coelhon
      Nickolas Coelhon

      But the species is classified on what’s embedded in the chocolate

    It's bold of you to assume that the chocolate isn't thier body. Yes they can take it off, but this does not mean it isn't apart of them. They share no similar anatomy with existing species (aside from the nuts). They could be able to drop this similar to how a lizard drops thier tail. The only defining factor being they can put it back. The shell is confirmed clothing because you know zipper and what not.

    Matpat needs to try making a theory on the Chocovores to test if they would possibly eat each other.

    Hold on there is a new ad of the m&m’s in a bag and the bag is small.. so they’re small m&m’s which means the small ones they eat are not actually candies their actually alive so they are cannibals cause the ad we saw around the intro they were eating their own m&m’s types also
