“What Do You Poupon?” Asks “Banned Commercial” [VIDEO]

Banned commercials are a very real thing--but there’s something kind of deceptive about filming a comedy sketch and calling it a banned commercial. Nevertheless, that’s exactly what Adam Grimes and Jessica Sattelberger did when they created the ad “What Do You Poupon?”

Granted, it’s a clever conceit, reminiscent of the K-Mart “Ship My Pants” ad, but as the Huffington Post reported, this is nothing more than a comedy sketch masquerading as a banned commercial.

When asked what their ideal response would be from the Great Grey Poupon, Jessica answered with, “It would be cool for them to say ‘We’ve seen it, and we thought it was pretty funny.'” She noted that the pair really “love the mustard” and thought it would be neat to make a commercial for Grey Poupon, since “they haven’t made one in a really long time.” Adam echoed her thoughts, adding that, “the best part of the shoot was having two to three leftover jars of the mustard.”

Watch the entire commercial below–followed by a video that has a bunch of other fake commercials that are just as clever, but never took off like this one did…
