dumb commercial

I just saw an ad for a Parmalat (the producing company) soy beverage called Soy Delicious. The ad involved a man grabbing a rabbit from a cage, rubbing it against his head and then sticking it to the wall like a balloon.

Is this supposed to have comic value? I wrote to Parmalat and explained that a lot of soy product consumers would be alienated by this advert.

Has anyone else seen this ad? I live in canada, and don't know if this product is available in the Unites States.

Does anyone else think this ad sounds awful?

"soy beverage called Soy Delicious"


I believe it is Sensational Soy drink

or something with "sensation" in the title .... not Soy delicious (pretty sure) ... (the woman said ... it's not 'sensational' to the rabbit on wall )

And yes I did see it and was a little bothered by it really.

Who are these marketting "geniuses" anyway. Many of the people drinking this stuff will be vegans or vegetarians (I assume) who don't like seeing imagery of mistreating animals (I know it's probably trick computer work or whatever but I didn't like the imagery )

As you can see by the "Maple lodge farms" chicken as part of that company, they are not concerned with veggie issues which explains the stupid ad (almost as bad as the Maple Leaf chicken ad with the 'dog show' like scenario of judging chickens and running them around on a leash just like a dog show !! that ad frigging annoys me!)

I won't be buying any from that company
