Suicide the New Stupid Dad Ad Trend

Chupa-Chups-Jumper.jpg

We've done stupid dads, talking animals, women in bikinis, rape, humor, shock, poignancy, cavemen, rodents out of a cannon and hundreds of other hooks to get people to look at our ads. The meme of the moment now is suicide. GM did it. VW did it. Now we have children contemplating suicide for...lollipops. Yes, Chupa Chups thinks it's the end of the world without their lollipops with girls contemplating a jump from atop a doll house and boys contemplating death by milk. Surely the Center With Nothing to do But Complain About Innocuous Ads will have something to say about this one.

Jeezuz!! And I thought Dolce & Gabana was bad!! Phobics of 'copy cat behaviour' where ARE you?!!? Is the tag line "Life SHOULD suck" or "If life doesn't suck, it sucks"?
