I fail to see what is so funny. First, what kind of moron is eating in a room full of filthy monkeys? Second, why would he just sit in the corner like a traumatized little girl after the explosion? It isn't clever or even remotely humorous. I hate every single one of these pizza pop ads. Nothing more than contrived, illogical scenarios to show off how much filling they have. I would be more inclined to buy them if they simply told me it was really f*cking good. However, I suppose people who actually buy pizza pops are stupid enough to think that stuff blowing up = funny = me want go buy pizza pops now. So I guess by that rationale it's really a fantastically good ad.

It's cute and funny. But the best of the lot is still Robot.

Let me ask you a question... How old are you? If you're answer is anything above 25 then of course you're not gonna like it. I, personally don't like the ad much but I think it's spot-on for its target market. 12-18 year old kids that love video games, quirky humour, and are still trying to express themselves in ways you will never understand. You're simply not the TM and that's why you don't like it and don't understand it. For me, I can see my nephew laughing his ass off at one of these ads and you know what... Next time mommy's running to the grocery store, he's gonna remember how that ad made him feel. So when mommy says, "honey, anything special you want for your friday treat?" He's gonna scream, "PIzza Pops!"

Other than that, this ad is targeting pot smoking teenagers and late night drinkers who just love that fast and tasty, no frills treat. It's simple and stupid humour. and you know what, it works! Kudos to the client for having the balls to do something completely different.

I think you've judged too quickly without asking yourself necessary questions.
