This Sprite commercial was banned 6 years ago, but it's still making its rounds on the Internet.
In 2009, this supposedly real Sprite commercial was banned from the airwaves due to its extremely adult content. The commercial went viral and remains so controversial that people are still talking about it.
But here's the thing: it was never a real commercial.
Max Isaacson, the director of the ad, told Perez Hilton, "At the heart of it all, these spots were meant to exist as something of a social experiment. It went better than I expected. I wanted to do two things: first, to make the spots, which I thought were pretty entertaining ideas; and second, to release it to the world and see how many people would believe that it was real."
See for yourself, does this seem like a real commercial to you? Remember that it's extremely NSFW, so proceed cautiously.
"To be honest, I just wanted to get a rise out of everyone," Isaacson said. Well, he certainly accomplished that and is continuing to get a rise out of people, 6 years later.
Here's his other not-really-a-Sprite commercial. And it's also super NSFW (unless you work from home):
Whether you think these commercials are real or not, it's the racist and anti-semitic comments on the various shares that are truly disgusting. That's why you never read the comments on YouTube. Ever.
