Thanks, ad, but we’d rather not associate “good lickin'” with lithe young BMX racers

June 23, 2013


You wouldn’t think BMX cyclists would have much in common with éclair lollipop(?)-loving monkeys from India, but both include “licking” in their ad copy, and both are therefore off-putting. Even if watermelon Jolly Ranchers are perfectly acceptable snack sweets. All apologies to Brad Birdwell, Tom Corbitt, Kevin Foss, Marc Darnell and their imaginary rankings (how can two cyclists be #1 at the same time?).

    I am morally opposed to, and horrified by, any ad featuring Jolly Ranchers, the most satanic and diabolically awful candy invented since licorice.
