There’s a bizarre and disturbing commercial for Halo Top Ice Cream — of an elderly woman in a bleak, antiseptic room. A robot spoon feeds her ice cream, telling her:
“Everyone you love is gone. There is only ice cream.”
The best comment about the video on YouTube is this one by Ryanator:
“So this is what hell looks like”
Founded in 2011 by former lawyer Justin Woolverton, Halo Top in July 2017 became the best-selling pint of ice cream at grocery stores in the United States, besting traditional ice cream brands such as Ben & Jerry’s and Haagen-Dazs.
Would you actually buy Halo Top ice cream after watching this commercial?
And if you will, why?
