Sonic's Distasteful Ad
Sonic is airing a new commercial that is not only offensive – but this once family-friendly restaurant has made a deliberate decision to produce controversial advertisements instead of wholesome ones.
In a recent Sonic cheeseburger commercial, one customer is chatting in her car with another woman about how they don’t wear bras to Sonic and definitely not in their carpool. One Million Moms finds this highly inappropriate for an ad, especially one selling food. When writing and producing this commercial, someone with Sonic thought this was a great way to represent the company and approved this type of marketing. Sonic could have simply chosen to leave this out of their commercial.
Sonic’s ad is tacky and offensive. It is irresponsible because of its impact on impressionable children viewing the commercial. We all know children repeat what they hear. Does Sonic want children to think it is OK to go around in public wearing no underwear?
This ad is airing during prime time, when families are likely watching. Sonic should be more responsible in its marketing decisions. Let the company know that as a parent and a consumer, you are disgusted by its recent marketing choices.
Sonic needs to know parents do not approve!
If you agree that this marketing campaign is inappropriate, please sign our petition urging Sonic to cancel this commercial immediately.
