Woolworths Ooshies are the talk of the playground, and if your child doesn’t have a sizable collection, chances are they’ll be shunned from the Pride Lands.
And while Ooshies are undoubtedly aimed at children, it seems some Woolworths shoppers have taken it into their own hands to turn the popular collectable into something a little more MA 15+.
A Woolworths shopper in South Australia took to social to share the hysterically placed ad placement, which can be said with fair certainty wasn’t done by a Woolies’ employee (or maybe it was).
The photo featured an advertisement banner marketing the supermarket’s new Ooshies range placed in the condom section.
The ad features the Ooshies character Thor, with the words: “You’re big. But I’ve fought bigger.”
While harmless words by itself, when placed in front of a packet of condoms, well, it takes on a whole new meaning that’s left shoppers in hysterics.
Social media users were quick to add to the gag.
“It’s not the size of the hammer but how hard you bang the nail that matters,” one person wrote.
Meanwhile, another Woolworths customer spotted the same ad placement located in a NSW store.
“Woolworths… I love your sense of humour!” she wrote on the official Facebook page with a picture she took of the ad placement fail.
