“When Olympic Endorsements Go Bad”

posted by on August 29 at 14:00 PM

Defamer unearths a disturbing old gem.

“It makes my taco pop.”

Beat that, bro.

Also, in answer to the ad-opening query, “What do champion gymnasts Paul Hamm, Morgan Hamm, and Shawn Johnson have in common?”: the exact same voice.

I didn't know munchkins had their own Olympics. That's sweet.

"I'd like to pop HER taco."

"That makes my taco pop." You realize the stoned copywriters at the agency probably had a bet whether that would make it or not.

And I love the helium-sucking gym dwarves.

Boy, that kills any desire for a Hamm sandwich.

This made my day. Sweet lord.

I never really had any interest in Shawn Johnson's taco...until now.

That is a spectacularly bad ad. Thnanks!

Oh, and all fantasies of the Hamm brothers has now shriveled up and died. Better if I'd never actually heard those voices. *sigh*

In New Mexico, there is a chain fast food joint called "Pop 'n' Taco". Makes me laugh every time.
