To promote the massive new retails space of ‘clucking fun for everyone’ called the Kentucky for Kentucky Fun Mall in Lexington, here’s cocaine bear, a man in his undies and another wearing a bucket on his head.
This is an advert for Kentucky Fun Mall with the largest selection of cool, crazy and bizarre Kentucky gear anywhere on Planet Earth. According to the website– “We’ve stacked it from wall to wall with all sorts of eye candy and oddities to make hanging out with us a fun experience, regardless of whether or not you’re in the market for a kick-ass new t-shirt. Never seen a stuffed bear that died from eating $15 million worth of cocaine?”
“We’re 21st century digital boys and girls so we do most of our crushing online, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still party like it’s 1999. So we dusted off our camcorders, cranked up our boomboxes, enlisted the expertise of our bud Ian at Kong Productions and made it our mission to create (and air) the weirdest thing on Central Kentucky television since that “I do no sex” lady crashed the Lexington City Council.”
“The commercial was kind of an experiment,” one of the spots stars and partner in Kentucky for Kentucky Whit Hiler told Adweek. “We do most of our advertising online and really just wanted to air something ridiculous on television. We wanted to make an ad that was so absurd it would make most of the local television stations uncomfortable—and it did.”
