I Suppose It’s Not Surprising They Oppose ‘Tasting the Rainbow’…

Guys, watch out.  One Million Moms is angry again!

This time it’s about a Skittles commercial!

For those of you who can’t watch videos or are too afraid of the moral repercussions of subjecting yourself to something so depraved that One Million Moms finally had to speak up, I shall break it down for you.

By the way, it’s a weird commercial.

White Girl #1: [On the couch smooching a walrus.  A giant, huge walrus.]
White Girl #2: [Enters apartment.]  What are you doing?!
WG 1: I’m not making out with your boyfriend!  It just looks like Bobby, but he said he’s not Bobby.  It’s like these Skittles. [enter Skittles pitch here]
WG 2: Oh.
WG 1: [Some creepy sexy-talk to walrus and resumes smooching.]

Listen, I’m not saying it’s a good ad.  But, check out the OMM response:

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. Let Skittles know their new ad is irresponsible.

It is taking lightly the act of beastiality!

Listen, Moms.  If all it takes is one weird commercial from Skittles to make your kids want to go bang a walrus, then maybe you have some bigger issues to deal with.

And let us not forget, Skittles is trying to get your kids to eat little fruit-flavored sugar pellets.  I think if they had your children’s “best interest in mind” they would be selling bran muffins or grapes or something.

In closing, here is a picture of a young woman making out with a walrus:

Please try to contain yourselves.
