Crazy China Ad Watch: Skittles.

(click ads) A different brand of crazy from the crazy US TV spots. Here we have "Here's Johnny!" and a nuclear explosion made of Skittles. The tag on this campaign is, "This taste is so much fun." I don't know what hell is so much fun about a nuke, but this is Crazy China. Previously in: Crazy China Ad Watch.

actually, i find it rather disturbing that anyone would use such violent and disturbing images in an ad for candy.

Considering its connotations, I always thought Skittles' "Taste the Rainbow" tag would've been better suited for a gay nightclub.

At least the mosaic of the bomb suggests that Skittles are a taste explosion—not to be confused with a sexy-time explosion, ala Borat...or a gay nightclub.
