Adding to My List
Following the right wing sh%$ storm after a minor rebranding, I am adding the M&M’s advertising mascots to my list of They Who Must Not Be Named.
I may continue to discuss candies, but the CGI advertising avatars that have turned into a right wing hissy fit because the Green M&M has changed footwear? I am done with them.
The juxtaposition of right wing faux outrage and right wing foot fetishes is way past my limit.
Also, I prefer Almond Roca:
The green M&M has a new look. Not everyone is impressed.
The problem? The once-sexy cartoon candy seems to have been stripped of her mojo, some say.
In photos and videos released by candy company Mars Inc., the humanlike green M&M no longer has her signature pose — one hand on her head, and another by her hip. The peachy skin tone on her legs and arms is now a cartoonish white. And her high-heeled boots have been swapped for sneakers, which the company said reflects what people are wearing during the Covid-19 pandemic.
This is where Rule 34 goes to die.
