Rape is Funny When It's Happening to Hot Dogs ... Right?

... in the world according to Wienerschnitzel. (Push play on the right-hand side.)

Well, maybe the vibe is less like rape and more like cannibalism. Either way, it's malicious and creepy.

To demonstrate the irresistibility of its wieners, Wienerschnitzel's running an ad where a talking hot dog tries convincing Eskimos to move beyond an all-blubber diet. Horrors ensue when they look to him for comfort.

Neither funny nor appetizing.

I looked at the spot and where's the part about rape again?

And cannibalism? Are you implying hot dogs are made of eskimos?

The hot dog is positioned as a rational being. And, like, he gets the crap torn out of him.

It's sort of a bummer.

Now that I think about it, the whole rape thing was sort of a long shot.

This is reason number 340238943908 for not adopting the tone of anonymous tipsters. I'm sorry. I failed you.

I dunno, he may have cracked them up with that jiggles line and lightened the mood enough to turn them back. Stay positive, Angela.

Oh boy. Working on it.

Yeah,

I kinda have to agree with Steve on this one. Have we all become our own clients? I’ve been on this board a bunch of times and for the most part it seems that we’re all constantly looking for ways to blow up the creative... What happened to supporting our tribe and applauding a valid and unique effort? I for one would rather see would rather see a Hot dog endangered of being “cannibalized” by a bunch of Eskimos than something snuggled comfortably in the bosom of a safe idea.

I'm sorry, I don't mean to sound rude, but not only is the rape element non-existent, but I'm not see this so-called cannibalism. The definition of a cannibal is one who eats their own kind. Unless I'm high on an intense amount of LSD and cannot decipher reality from fantasy, I'm going to have to say that those are infact Eskimo's . . . not hot dogs.

This rape and cannibalism claim is so thoroughly absurd, it's laughable.

Lighten up.


Oh, and P.S. the creative is boring. It's the exact same concept as those terrible Chips Ahoy Commercials.

Hey guys, I was one of the Eskimo's in this ad and we didn't eat TDO (the hot dog) he runs away, so all is fine...it's just an ad~
