Really BAD Starburst Commercial

Has anyone seen this weird commercial? This guy is high on something. The reviewers on Youtube thought he was the apocalypse.



I think starburst is really getting desperate or just wanted to make people puke.

That might make sense if he was "Little Boy Blue" talking about blueberry flavor.

I don't say that he's high on something, but that somebody has had a frontal lobe extraction if they ever thought this would be a good marketing device. I agree, this commercial totally sucks and the other one they have with the singing rabbit also make me want to pop one.

The purpose of a commercial is to make the product name stick in your head, not necessarily to entertain you.

You may not like the commercial, but how many other products are being discussed here?

You have a point there. It definitely makes the product hard to forget. But still, that commercial is worse than the Head-on commercial.

And yet here you are "advertising" another product by name BECAUSE of it's commercial, not in spite of it.

Remember, there's no such thing as bad publicity.
