SNOOP DOGG MAKES PISTACHIO NUTS SEEM ILLEGAL
So far, Snoop Dogg’s (or is it Lion?) ad for Paramount Farms pistachios has been the most controversial and successful. Censors were so outraged by his drug-implied ad (he pours pistachios out of a pill bottle and calls it “habitual”) that it was banned by the networks. Snoop’s “Get crackin”” ad is limited to cable and online. Being banned is probably the best thing that could happen – his ads are more successful than the ones done by Snooki, The Village People, and Homer Simpson for the same pistachio campaign.
