You could say Skittle promotes a lot of things. Tooth decay, for one. Childhood obesity, for another. Hell, you could even say it promotes homosexuality (“Experience the Rainbow“? Hello?).
Here’s what you probably never considered the fruit-flavored candies might be promoting: bestiality.
Yup, the One Million Moms are back, and they’re in fiiiiiine form.
Skittles has a new commercial ad featuring a young woman making out with a walrus. Despite the fact that it’s a stupid commercial for candy, the One Million Moms (they of boycotting-JCPenney-because-a-lesbian-Ellen-Degeneres-is-the-spokesperson fame) are all in a tizzy, posting on their website:
We are not sure of Skittles’ thought process behind their new ad, but if they are attempting to offend customers, they have succeeded. Skittles’ newest “Walrus” commercial includes a teen girl making out with a walrus. The two are on a sofa in an apartment kissing on the mouth when her shocked roommate walks in on them. Parents find this type of advertising inappropriate and unnecessary. Does Skittles’ have our children’s best interest in mind? Skittles candies are for all ages, but their target market is children.
Skittles Marketing Team may have thought this was humorous, but not only is it disgusting, it is taking lightly the act of bestiality.
Is another way we should be taking the act of bestiality? Like, with a Hershey bar? A bag of M&M’s? A shot of tequila?
Either way, here’s what a few million other moms are likely thinking as they read this story: Why are these One Million Moms and what kind of time do they have on their hand that they’re getting their panties all waded up over a walrus and a Skittles commercial?
Do they not have kids to whom they should be attending? Jobs at which they should be working? Lunches to pack? Toilets to scrub? Groceries to be shopped for? Husbands to whom they should be serving drinks and not sleeping with?
If not, can we — the millions and millions of other, real moms — trade places with them so we can have this kind of luxurious time on our hands to get all worked up over a walrus and a bag of Skittles?
Check out the utterly non-offensive yet superbly stupid Skittle ad that so doesn’t deserve this kind of publicity here.
