When you're watching a scary movie and you know there's a killer lurking somewhere, something just as deadly could be hiding out in the popcorn bowl you're snacking on, as these Red Cross ads show. Even though popcorn is seemingly harmless snack, this ad shows that any small object can be a killer and it encourages people to get the proper first aid training to deal with these kinds of emergency situations, like someone who is need of aid when choking.

The ad by Lowe & Partners turns a popcorn kernel into a skull, adding a rather morbid twist to an otherwise innocent movie snack. The next time you're snacking on popcorn, you might want to look out twice for one of these guys. Stats for Killer Popcorn Ads Trending: Older & Average
