Paramount Farms is creating buzz in advertising circles with a new commercial for its Wonderful Pistachios brand that pokes fun at the recent Secret Service scandal.
The short spot features sexy women mingling with dark suited men wearing sunglasses and bright pistachio-colored neckties. The voiceover says simply, "The Secret Service do it -- and get fired for it. Wonderful Pistachios. Get crackin'."
Of the spot, AdWeek said: "
The commercial is one of four in a $30 million ad campaign promoting the Kern County almonds that also features the Village People, Brobee from "Yo Gabba Gabba!' and characters from "Frankenweenie," the upcoming film from Tim Burton.
