Baby Nut Is Inspiring Some Hilariously Violent & Angry Tweets

Planters Nuts had teased their Super Bowl ad since the untimely demise of their mascot, Mr. Peanut. Unfortunately, the funeral-themed bit didn't sit as well with viewers as they had anticipated. The ad shows mascots mourning the monocle'd peanut in a cemetery, when the Kool-Aid man's tears cause "Baby Nut" to emerge from the dirt, a mascot reborn. 

The move is a pretty obvious nod to the popularity of Baby Yoda, and many people found the move to be a cheap exploitation of the public's affinity for cute characters. These feelings were then channeled into some seriously Anti-Baby Nut tweets that made us wonder if peanut allergies are more prevalent than we thought. Whatever the case, the passionate contempt for the small legume is vastly entertaining. We can't wait to see what Planters does to spin this one.

Planters Just Killed Off Mr. Peanut & Twitter Has Mixed Feelings About It

In what can only been seen as peak late stage capitalism, Planters announced today on Twitter that their mascot Mr. Peanut has died in an act of heroic sacrifice. According to a pre-Super Bowl advertisement, the beloved monocled peanut passed while saving two friends from a terrifying car wreck. 

According to a press release, the company will be broadcasting Mr. Peanut's funeral during the third quarter of the Super Bowl. Twitter users are reacting to this "news" with a mixture of grief, puns, memes and outrage. The outrage comes from people who think it's absolutely insane that advertising has stopped to the level of "killing" fictional characters before the most profitable advertising event in the country. We're inclined to agree, but some of these jokes (particularly the ones regarding peanut allergies) are too good for us to ignore.

Food Scams That Would Leave Anyone Feeling Betrayed

False advertising is never cool, but there's something about false food advertising that kinda next-level stings. Looking forward to a pizza and then discovering it lacks cheese or boasts just one circle of pepperoni is practically devastating. There's even a subreddit dedicated to this kind of betrayal. On r/foodscam you'll find tragic lies involving pizza, sandwiches, and even "crookies" - cookies that are woefully misrepresented in their packaging. We've put together some of the more horrifying crimes against consumers from the subreddit, but there's loads more where these come from.

These Deadpool Photobombs Are The Epitome Of Marketing Genius

The Deadpool films have never been lacking in the smart marketing department, but these packaging "photobombs" really take things to the next level. The limited edition FOX Blu-Ray covers are only available at Walmart for a very limited time. While we appreciate the covers for their cleverness, they kind of leave us wishing for Deadpool cameos in the movies themselves. We're pretty sure the costumed anti-hero could add something special to any movie. Well, maybe any movie besides, like, Schindler's List.
