This ad has bothered me a lot.
In fact, every time it comes on the TV, The Boy has to switch it off before I get upset.
This is a Wrigleys ad that’s been on TV for the last few months.
Cute cartoon versions of food running around, peddling their tiny legs to catch up with The Human whom they love andworship
They play with him, they keep him come company, they smile adoringly at him.
They pull adorable faces when quirky things happen to them, like the cookie that grins when a lock of His Hero’s hair falls on him in the hairdressers.
And then they get in a lift and The Jerk eats some chewing gum, stopping them from following him -basically he ditches them for his girlfriend.
The cute cartoon food items panic and look distraught as he walks away.
In the Irish/UK version, the onion tries to chase after His God and attempts to hold the door so his friends can come too, but he gets trapped in and just before the ad ends, you see he’s about to be CRUSHED HORRIBLY between floors as the lift moves upwards.
They’re cute, adorable creatures!
There were no stink lines or evil faces or setting fire to things!!!
They were FRIENDS who loved the Human.
And he massacred them.
I’m never buying Wrigleys again.
