Does the thought of watching a scary man staring ghoulishly into your eyes while eating himself make you want to buy an ice cream?
Well, one ice cream company based in Philadelphia, USA, certainly hope so - and it seems to have done the trick.
You would have thought calling yourself Little Babies ice cream was creepy enough, but just wait until you see their new commercials. They are likely to be the most disturbing things you will see in a long time.
The two spots compete tightly with one another as the subject of my next nightmare. They even have freaky titles: ‘This is a Special Time’ and ‘Love Lickers’. The former depicts the sexless man-ice cream eating itself with a soulless stare and puke-inducing mouth movements.
The second is a repetitive ice-cream-man-in-cone-holding-ice-cream-man-in-cone sequence which ends with a huge tongue sliding into the frame and licking Malcolm – apparently that’s the dairy freak’s name.
One minute is far too long to have to endure such horror, and I applaud anyone who can watch to the end without either crying or vomiting. #
That said, they’ve gained a total of 68,969 shares in one week, so Malcolm and his glassy gaze must be doing something right.
