The week’s round-up features a ice-cream pooping unicorn, Tony the Tiger getting violent in hoax campaign and a SNL president spoof. Check out the best and the worst ads of the week.

The Good

SNL has plugged a fake product “Abilify” for rich white men who suddenly believe they can become the President of the United States. Sound familiar?

The Bad

WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT

A parody video featuring Kellogg’s character Tony the Tiger has launched. The ad claims Tony the Tiger wants to help “people who were children 30 years ago in my Frosted Flakes commercials, and asked them what their problem are now in their 40s”.

The problems seem to be prostitution and beating women.

B&T has contacted Kellogg’s Australia for a comment.

The Pooping Unicorn

“You know who sucks at pooping? You do”

The Harmon Brothers, the marketers behind Poo-Pourri, have outdone themselves with this latest viral video: “This Unicorn Changes The Way I Poop”.

The squatty potty, a product spruiked at the US reality show Shark Tank, promises the best poop of your life.
