What were they thinking?

It's no secret that I watch a fair amount of Hulu each day.  I'm not proud of it, but I'm also not ashamed.  Right now it's just a fact of life.  I've seen some great commercials on there.  The Old Spice manly man, the awesome Geico ads (little piggy one is my favorite), but just the other day I saw something that absolutely blew my mind.  It's a gem.

Friskies - what were you thinking!?!

Easily THE strangest thing I've seen on TV in a long time.  It's Lisa Frank on an acid trip.  Which is more disturbing, the turkeys doing a celebratory dance before their consumption, or the peeps enthusiastically welcoming the ravenous cat?

Or how about the single line that really does it for me: "Journey to delicious and beyond"

After watching it a few times, the tune is stuck in my head.  If they were going for something so off the wall that it sticks with you and haunts your dreams, they nailed it.


  1. AH! Yes! I HATE this commercial. It's so freaky and the tune frequents my disturbed mind. Who on earth is in their advertising department?

  2. We saw it for the first time in the theater when we went to see Alice in Wonderland 3D. I think that they made the commercial just for the movie because it was all in 3D. A serious waste of money. Looks just creepy in 2D.

  3. Today I love that more than anything. Thank you for sharing! My favorite is the dancing turkeys, with the spaceship contraption floating in the sky coming in a close second.

  4. I've seen this on Hulu many times myself and it always leaves me shaking my head and feeling like I'm going to ralph. It is so weird! Who thought this was a good idea?

  5. HAH I haven't thought about Lisa Frank in years. Good call.

  6. Keith walked in half way through watching it and asked if they put that cat on drugs. my thought exactly.
