One Million Moms Attacks Skittles for Promoting the Sacred Love Between Woman and Adorable Walrus

I don't know what the hell is up the One Million Moms' bug, but after being roundly criticized and reduced to irrelevancy for their attacks on Ryan Murphy's gay-adoption sitcom "The New Normal" and that narrow-minded hate-shrew, Ellen Degeneres, they're now going after Skittles. Why? Because in a recent ad, Skittles is apparently promoting bestiality, or at least to people who clearly no not understand Skittles off-beat sense of ... weirdness.

As they write on their website:

We are not sure of Skittles' thought process behind their new ad, but if they are attempting to offend customers, they have succeeded. Skittles' newest "Walrus" commercial includes a teen girl making out with a walrus. The two are on a sofa in an apartment kissing on the mouth when her shocked roommate walks in on them. Parents find this type of advertising inappropriate and unnecessary. Does Skittles' have our children's best interest in mind? Skittles candies are for all ages, but their target market is children.

Skittles Marketing Team may have thought this was humorous, but not only is it disgusting, it is taking lightly the act of bestiality. Let Skittles know their new ad is irresponsible.

Jesus Christ, people. Put down the pearls. Maybe try them in some new places. Loosen the hell up. It's a bizarre commercial, but I seriously doubt that after seeing it, a lot of American teenagers are going to run out and knock up the first walrus they see.

If One Million Moms really want to get their granny-panties in a bunch, they should watch more Starbursts commercials.

  • Only in America. :D

  • Replica

    Rats. I thought the moms finally discovered my favorite Pajiban.

  • ,

    I went to high school with Debbie Skittle. Seriously. She was pretty much flat chested but she was pretty and smart, and a year older than me, which made her hugely hot, of course.

    I'd have made out with her, is what I'm saying.

  • CptCrckpot

    I'm pleased to see Wilford Brimley is still getting work at his age, even if it is just a Skittles commercial.

  • Uriah_Creep

    That's clearly Jamie Hyneman. You need to get your eyes checked.

  • CptCrckpot

    You're right, I didn't recognize him without the beret... and wait, is that woman he's kissing, is that Tori in a wig?! I hope I just really do need to get my eyes checked.

  • Socraz6

    Why are you giving One Million Moms free press?

  • Xtacle Steve

    It's already working. I've slept with over nine walruses this month alone.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Tasting the rainbow has never been so bristley.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I need to date the daughter of one of the OMM higher ups and pronto.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    For all of you who remember the bots with the old comments:
    Check out S U G A R M O M M Y W A L R U S L O V E...

  • the other courtney

    I dunno - I giggled a litte when I saw the ad. Don't like/eat Skittles, but I'll easily remember what candy had the weird walrus ad, and that is the ultimate goal of the marketing weirdos behind this.
    The Mom's clearly have nothing better to do or worry about... get a job, ladies.

  • True_Blue

    Or at the very least, remove the sticks up your collective a$$es.

  • Miley's Virus

    At least it's a male walrus. If it female they would have freaked the fuck right out.

  • Miley's Virus

    was. If it WAS a female.....
    or am I supposed to use were? Were, was....crap.

  • foolsage

    It's the past subjunctive, for something that didn't happen but might have, so it's correct (and accurate) to say, "If it were a female they would have freaked the fuck right out."

  • mograph

    Is the past participle of "to freak" irregular? "Would have froken the fuck right out," maybe? Hmm.

  • Miley's Virus

    "Meet the Froken Focking Freakers", starring Ben Stiller, Jeremy Irons, Flavor Flav, and The Underwear from the bottom of De Niro's hamper.

  • Is it so hard to criticize a bad ad for being bad without accusing the company of some nefarious purpose? Because the ad sucks without any need for a fainting couch and a strong brew of smelling salts.

  • Snath

    What the fuck.

  • harrisonford

    In the words of the Dean Pelton, "Don't knock it 'til you try it."

  • KatSings

    I hate this ad. Not cause of the bestiality, but because it is terrible and weird in all the wrong ways. I change channels when it comes on (on the rare occasions I'm watching TV with commercial interruption). So...I'm cool with objecting to it being terrible? But to say it's promoting bestiality is a terrific stretch.

  • Maguita NYC

    Promoting bestiality?

    That's not nice, I know Newt Gingrich is a beast, but that Walrus is way cuter.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    You all realize that the only reason One Million Moms attacked this ad is to raise their profile with reporters. Sure, you will all say it's goofy and irrelevant, but the next time some reporter is desperate for a quote, the One Million Moms folks are more likely to rise to the top of the "gives good quotes" list.

    Main stream media still matters, and getting into the quote cycle is key.

  • Kala

    Maybe, but complaining about this silly commercial undermines the, um, "seriousness" of their purpose. It's like when Falwell claimed that Tinky the Teletubby was gay. That quote made it on to every news cycle imaginable, but no one (in their right mind at least) ever took anything he said seriously again. The sillier these ladies look, the better.

  • This feels like an Onion article. I mean, surely they can't be serious?

  • branded_redux

    They are serious... and don't call them Shirley... except that there's probably a Shirley amongst them, in which case you can call some of them Shirley where applicable.

  • BWeaves

    Nice beaver.

  • Thanks. I just had it stuffed.

  • bleujayone

    I would REALLY like to know what the hell the Marketing Department at Skittles has been smoking for the last five years or so. Because they've been coming up with some truly honking bizarro ads. Mind you, none of it has ever actually wanted me to ever actually indulge in the candy, but in a curious way it has peeked my interest enough to regularly watch the ads just to see how they'll try to push the limits of their acid trips.

    That said, if the campaign can piss off a bunch of self-righteous and irrelevant gender role throwbacks such as the Two Dozen....err "One Million" Moms...all the better. Really? A candy ad? THAT'S the cause you choose to throw your gauntlet down upon now? Hell, I'll buy a pallet of Skittles and freely dole them out at Halloween if it means these twattruffles continue to have their collective panties in a bind.

  • Vi

    If you think that was weird, here, let me share more with you:

  • Anon

    Heh.. twattruffles..

  • Fabius_Maximus

    LSD. I thought it was pretty obvious.

  • bleujayone

    Thought about that. But these ads have no music. Everybody knows LSD trips have the best soundtracks.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I wouldn't know about that.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Firstly, that is clearly not a teenage girl. She's at least in her twenties. Secondly, she's no doubt in college and all tweeked out on uppers, meth, cocaine and professorial body fluids so she can't be held responsible for her actions. Thirdly, she's trying to find her sexual identity and I'm offended that One Million Closeted Vibrator Users would seek to repress her golden age of sexual exploration. Finally, everybody does that in college so these wanna-be slatterns should just get over their jealousy of her sexual liberation and buy a bigger dildo.
