Am I the only one who finds the latest ads from Ballpark Franks a little disturbing? Okay, really disturbing? I think not.
Of the three they’re airing, the only one that really creeps me out is the “girthy” one. It’s so unappetizing looking at this guy crooning “girrrrrthy” with a look of ecstasy on his face. It reminds me of Drew’s “O-face” in Office Space.
If that were it, it would be bad enough. But it gets worse. He takes a big bite out of that girthy weiner and is transported even higher.
And this makes me want to buy this brand why?
My husband and I briefly considered that the ad might be targeting gay males. But looking at this character and his love of monster trucks and ill-fitting clothing, we threw that out the window. Actually, the ad sounds more like the subject lines of porn spam I get in my inbox than it does an ad for food.
All I know is, I’m not alone…Two relatives, one friend, and several folks online such as this fella seem to think the same thing: Yuck!
