Gangnam Style's Psy to Star in Super Bowl Ad for Wonderful Pistachios (Boycott Paramount Farms)
Adweek ^ | 1/9/12 | Adweek

It was probably inevitable that Wonderful Pistachios, a brand known for cartoony commercials with broad comedy and D-list celebrities, would eventually end up on the Super Bowl.

And indeed, the Paramount Farms nut brand has signed up for Super Bowl XLVII and will air a 30-second spot starring the biggest one-hit wonder of all: South Korean rapper Psy of "Gangnam Style" fame.

KEYWORDS: boycott
Paramount Farms is owned by 'RAT donor Stewart Resnick.

Psy rapped about ‘killing Yankees’ in the past: report (Obama's 'Christmas' Guest...)

"Kill those [bleep]ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives / Kill those [bleep]ing Yankees who ordered them to torture / Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers / Kill them all slowly and painfully."

Since I don’t have a dog in the hunt this year, I’m going to ignore the Stupid Bowl.

Besides, the intrusion of filthy rock and meaningless fireworks and thousands of people on the field at half-time completely turn me off.

We should have a football game during intermissions at rock concerts, and see how they like that.

In any case, if I watch anything, it’ll be the Puppy Bowl . . . Just love it.

And Psy isn’t even talented.

I understand why people will watch a movie with a talented actor or go to a concert to hear a great musician even if the artist has abhorrent views but Psy has no talent and isn’t even entertaining. So why is the entertainment industry giving this fool a platform on which to get rich? I don’t understand the Psy phenomenon, and hope he fades away soon and he can then mumble his bitter rantings to himself.

Haha . . . I forgot about this long list since I tend to ignore them all. There is a lot of mindless entertainment out there.

Obviously Paramount Farms has decided where their market lies and it is not with me. Pistachios while tasty are very expensive and not normally on my shopping list. Apparently Paramount has decided that the low class gang banger wanna be’s have a lot of disposable income to by their product instead of malt liquor.

I ignored it last year and had a very productive, happy day.

Thank you. I buy bought their pistachios every week or two at Aldi. I'll just have to find a different brand elsewhere, and pay more.

I’ve been boycotting them since they had Levi Johnston on.
