Pop Tarts Rape Commercial? | Super Joe Pardo Professional Business Coach

Pop Tarts Rape Commercial?

Normally, I don’t let myself get offended and I definitely can see the joke here since these characters have been trying to capture pop tarts in all ways imaginable. But the other night when I was sitting at my dad’s house and saw this commercial come on, I had to do a double take. Not only did I get the impression they implied that the pop tarts became drunk, but seemed pretty blatant to me when the female character said, “Can’t hold your soda boys?” I can’t be the only one that finds the irony of a lady saying this to what one may presume would be two boy pop tarts.

Of course this is fresh in my mind thanks to that Judge Persky who is letting a raper get off with 6 months. I signed it, and you should consider it too. Here is a link to a petition to have him removed: http://act.weareultraviolet.org/sign/stanford_judgeperskyrecall/

I know that my blog isn’t usually a place to find things that are potentially offensive, but as an admirer of all things marketing this stuck out to me. So I am not entirely sure if going after a pop tarts rape commercial was their target, but I could definitely see how it could be construed as such.

Am I alone in thinking this? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

    Omg yes!!! When I saw it I had to watch it again I couldn’t even believe it. Like who watched this before airing and was like “yeah this is a great one”??

    I was really shooken up after watching this. They took a stab at making date-rape “funny”. Awful.
