Ideas? People? Single-celled organisms? Bacteria? Toads? Frogs?

Does this have anything to do with astronomy?

12,352 = twelve thousand, three hundred and fifty-two? Base ten? Or something else? A code or such?

"It" = a published source? Something on the internet?

So, a commercial tells you that 12,352 are born at the same time... and those are born of a chemical reaction?
does the commercial specify that number?

is it a commercial for ..
something you can buy at a grocery store?
drug store?
auto parts store? auto dealer?
are the 12,352 part of a product?
would you buy a product to handle the 12,352?
are there 12,352 scrubbing bubbles that can clean anything? something similar?
