Uber Eats Super Bowl ad has forced the US Government to clarify that no one should eat soap – yes, soap.
Uber Eat’s debuted a celebrity-packed ad on Super Bowl Sunday featuring Trevor Noah, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Coolidge and Nicholas Braun – basically, everyone’s dream dinner guests all in one commercial! Cousin Greg anyone?
The ad showed celebrities eating unedible things delivered by Uber Eats. It was a cheeky way for the food delivery company to promote that it will now be delivering things you don’t swallow! You know lip balm and such.
Naturally, the ad playfully used celebrities acting confused and eating the non-edible goods. Iconically, Paltrow took a bite from her vagina flavoured candle!
At some point, Coolidge said: “If it was delivered with Uber Eats, does that mean I can ‘Eats’ it?”
Uber Eat’s then took to Twitter and Tweeted, “Now delivering eats and don’t eats! Please don’t get them mixed up!”
