Meat Scream

I'm not a big fan of talking food commercials in general. I have never understood why seeing chicken McNuggets sing would make someone want to buy a box. The whole "sexy" green M&M with legs and lipstick makes me worried for humanity.

But this...

This takes things to a whole new level.

I don't eat Hot Pockets. I think I did, maybe twenty years ago before I realized that cooking could be more involved--and rewarding--than sliding something frozen into a cardboard tube and bombarding it with radiation.

These Side Shots are, to the best of my understanding, an offshoot of Hot Pockets--which was, by the way, my nickname in high school--and come in pairs that you pull apart to "enjoy." I can't speak to the quality of the product. They may be the tastiest thing since tempura-coated, deep-fried Ding-Dongs. (Gag.)

But the commercials are disturbing to me because these characters the ad company has created look like someone has sliced their lips off and their gaping maw is one big meat scream.

Who the hell wants to eat that?

Sliced off lips ... and whatever is revealed looks like ... ??? vomit? Entrails? IN A FOOD commercial? Art direction: FAIL. This is a joke, right?
