Cadbury Crème Egg 'disgusting' ad causes backlash
If you look forward to having your annual Cadbury Creme Egg each Easter season, you might not like how the company celebrates the risen Savior.
Cadbury just released a commercial that has resulted in a backlash of comments from Christians and non-Christians alike. Everything from "disgusting" and "very disappointing" to "yech" and "gross."
Todd Starnes best describes the ad this way: "It's like Disney's 'Lady and the Tramp' scene where the two dogs share spaghetti. Except, it's two grown men spinning around in a circle and sharing a creme-filled chocolate egg in a sexualized way."
The 10-second segment is part of a longer commercial called "Crème Egg Golden Goobilee," showing ways to eat a Cadbury Crème Egg. You can see it here. Warning: This video is graphic and offensive.
Cadbury makes a huge push to sell its Crème Eggs in America during the Easter season each year. A portion of each sale goes to help finance Cadbury’s social agenda that has nothing to do with chocolates and candies.
If U.S. sales are strong, Cadbury just might bring this ad to American televisions for your children to see. Taking a stand now will send a strong signal that their eggs are cracked up.
Sign our pledge to keep Cadbury Crème Eggs off your shopping list. Let Cadbury know that if they are going to offend you, they won’t be doing it with your money.
