The Skittles Newlyweds Campaign is Hilariously Inappropriate

Ad campaign spoofs are simply the best, take the Skittles Newlyweds commercial as an example. By taking things past the boundary of decency, it really sheds light on how ridiculous some ads can be. Of course, I do love the Skittles campaign unlike the controversy that Milk had on their hands with their PMS print ads, which was also spoofed by Funny or Die.

Of course, the Skittles Newlyweds commercial really takes it to the next level. On par with the fake Sprite commercial that showed a woman getting up close and personal with the iconic green bottle, the Skittles Newlyweds commercial shows a man ejaculating skittles over his new wife.

Hilariously shocking, the Skittles Newlyweds commercial was created by the creative Cousins studio. Stats for Spoofed Sweets Commercials Trending: Older & Warm
