More animal weirdness in advertising – is this a trend I’m unaware of? After the semi-pornographic Orangina ad – recently named as a Campaign 2008 turkey – there’s a new lesson for children from Coco Pops. Yes kids, there are tiny hippos bathing in your coco pops, gyrating, eyeing each other up and doing some kinda weird aqua areobics. They’re dancing to random soul track ‘Sign your name across my heart’ by Terence Trent D’Arby, and they’re totally edible – as demonstrated by the smiling little girl at the end!
What? Too random no? Bring back that little monkey and “You better have a bowl of coco pops”.
