I thought about making this thread as I poured ketchup on my hamburger today. It brought back some major PTSD I had as a kid… the Heinz ketchup commercials.
The commercial you see below was played so much it almost made a legion of children hate ketchup. For a kid just wanting to get back to his Scooby Doo cartoons and Gilligan’s Island, it was the ultimate pain. I wanted to kick the marketing guy… who I’m sure was so proud of himself for linking this song to watching a spleen ooze out of its bottle. Each time it started I’d plug my ears and shut my eyes to try to get this ad from taking over my brain like a zombie cricket fungus. Making matters worse, I looked identical to the kid in this commercial.
