While watching the Pitt-West Virgina game on Friday night, I saw this ad for the Freedom Tray, a ridiculous product with an even more ridiculous advertising pitch. In case you haven’t already heard, the Freedom Tray — so named because it’s made in America, presumably during George W. Bush’s presidency — is the preferred method for carting around jumbo sodas and nitrate-rich food for your obese family.
I can’t decide which part of this commercial I like best: I definitely enjoy the part where the announcer is all, “Is carrying food for your family TOO MUCH PRESSURE for your cholesterol-choked heart?” but I think I’m leaning toward the image of a fast food worker handing the mom her drive-thru order on the Freedom Tray. As if Mom made her drive-thru order, then pulled up and said, “Hold on, take my order out of those paper sacks and give it to me on this.” Bravo, Freedom Tray. Bra. Vo.
