I Hope Nabisco Didn't Pay for This Ad

Unless this YouTube clip has been doctored, commercials for Kraft’s Nabisco Premium Plus crackers ran in the final episode of Battlestar Galactica, an episode in which one of characters commits suicide with a pistol to her head. (Skip the below clip if you want to avoid a gory scene.) In the Nabisco ads which immediately follow that image, Nabisco crackers thrown into soup bowls create fountains of splattering tomato soup, choreographed to a song whose lyrics are “I just want to celebrate another day of living.”

It just goes to show, those awkward adjacencies don’t just happen on the web!

    That commercial is truly awful even without the juxtaposition. By itself it makes me think of blood splattering, explosions, bombings, etc…
