Funky new MAN OF POPSICLE ad campaign.. it’s cool!


I don’t normally notice such things

I like the goofy ad campaign being used by POPSICLE these days. “Man of Popsicle”
is very retro and done in that ‘so bad it’s good’ humor mode. There’s a an adult subtext to this campaign that is designed to make parents smile. The TV ads can be viewed in a popup window on the popsicle website (link is long dead, see the Youtube link at the bottom instead — Mr. N).

Giant ROBOTS!  AIEEE
“Aiiiiieeee!” Giant Robot!!!

My personal favorite is “The Monkeys of Un-Funness”. Any commercial with fezzed flying monkey is worth a look, in my opinion.

hans und gertie
Hans und Gertie are innocent Germanic looking schoolkids being plagued by an invasion of the monkeys of Unfunness! Aiiiieeee!

Monkeys!!!

There they are! Monkeys of Unfun-ness! Ugly buggers!!!

Oh no!

WHO WILL SAVE USSSSSSS?

my hero

Well, you didn’t doubt it, did you.. it’s MAN OF POPSCLE!


we can handle it! Just eat these suspiciously shaped frozen treats to release the power beam!!!

Get your mind out of the gutter, you swine.. no double entendre here, whatsoever. Just children enjoying the delicious popsicle taste sensation!

bzzzount!

Eat hot photon death!

Hot photons are arcing towards the monkey attack..

Hey, our death rays are drawing banannas in the air! And the monkeys are falling for it! YAAAAAY! Man of popsicle, our hero!!!
