ODDEST USE OF STAR WARS IN ADVERTISING EVER!

Like a grainy image from the Zapruder film, this commercial will have you studying it for years to find out what the hell happened to your beloved childhood memory

As someone born in the very early 70s, my first memories of life are often clouded in the gauzy colors of burnt orange and avocado green with just a hint of Star Wars thrown in for good measure (it was, after-all, my very first movie).

So, naturally, whenever I find a Star Wars-centered video made in the 70s, my nostalgia meter goes up and I am filled with a creamy Miracle-Whip like feeling inside (tangy but not obtrusive).

But even I have no idea why anyone would create an ad campaign that combines canned chicken and Star Wars and then release it onto an unsuspecting world where it could damage the psyche of any kid who witnessed it.

All I can think is that drugs played into this…heavy, heavy use of psychedelics.

Prepare yourself kids, this is gonna blow your mind.

    I saw that a few years ago. You might like to know "Sea Chicken" is actualy Tuna Fish, not canned chicken at all. The firm that markets it also makes pet ffod.

    Somehow that seems perfect for a Jessica Simpson riff…
