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.

Watch These Moms Try Baby Food For The First Time

It’s a parents duty to taste every food that goes into their newborn’s body. Whether it’s breast milk or packaged baby food, you gotta know what your’e feeding your kid.

The folks over at Facts got a group of moms together to try a batch of different types of baby food for the first time. Baby food includes infant milk (breast milk substitute), baby puree, gourmet dinner cups, and baby desserts.

Now, we’ve watched Facts try dozens of foods from all over the world in the past few years. This, however, may be the least appetizing journey they’ve embarked upon.

Still, check out the video above. If there’s a takeaway from this, it’s that maybe you’ll appreciate your mother a little more seeing all the gross baby foods she had to try to make sure you could eat them.

Watch Kraft’s Charmingly Vulgar Mother’s Day Commercial

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and this year, Kraft is giving moms a little extra love. In honor of the National Holiday, the mac and cheese brand teamed up with swearing expert Melissa Mohr, Ph.D., in a hilarious commercial short: Swear Like a Mother.

The idea is that moms aren’t perfect, they’ll mess up just like everyone else because they’re human. This includes swearing like a sailor upon occasion. Statistically, 74 percent of moms have admitted to swearing in front of their own children.

Mohr is the author of Holy Sh*T: A Brief History of Swearing, a book on alternative swear words moms can use around their kids.

Check out the short in the video above. This officially serves as your first reminder to get your mom something for Mother’s Day.

Kraft is also developing adorable mac and cheese ear plugs for children, in case swearing alternatives cannot be found in the heat of the moment.
