Skittles’ Nasty New Mother’s Day Commercial Features A Giant Umbilical Cord

There’s only a handful of days left until Mother’s Day. If you haven’t gotten your mom anything yet, now’s the time to jump on it. Because nothing should break the bond between a mother and her child.

With that said, Skittles created an unconventional commercial to celebrate the national holiday dedicated to moms.

The video shows a young man sitting on the couch with his mother sharing a bag of skittles. Innocent enough, right?

To viewers’ horror, we see that the mother and son are sharing the rainbow-flavored candy through an umbilical cord connected between his belly and her uterus. Through that connection, he can physically taste the piece of candy she puts in her mouth.

Nasty.

Check out the hilariously disgusting Skittles advert and see for yourselves if the brand might have gone too far this Mother’s Day.

Gotta give them major props for shooting their shot though.
