Loading... Be Patient!

Two cane toads sit on a road at night as a car with Ford Ecoboost approaches... I know this is NOT a politically correct TV commerical, but it made me laugh on a Monday morning, so I had to share it! Besides, the commercial closes with the Toad survivor calling out for his friend: "Ralphie?"

Apparently, the world's population of talking frogs have turned their allegiance from Budweiser and are now shilling for Ford of Australia. At least, those that haven't been smashed into great green globs of greasy, grimy cane toad guts.

Let's set the scene: A pair of Australian cane toads – the species, native to Central and South America, was imported into Australia in an unsuccessful attempt to control Beetle populations – are having a nighttime chat on a random road somewhere in Oz. The subject matter ranges from the tastiness and arousing properties of the toads' own back secretions to the velocity with which a four-cylinder car can travel. In this case, the car is powered by one of Ford's turbocharged EcoBoost engines.

And then... disaster strikes. It's certainly an odd advertisement, but at least it's unique. Oh, and if you're a member of PETA, you might want to look away.

"Look Ralphie... a pair of shooting stars... it's so romantic!" (hint: that is NOT the light at the end of the tunnel, it's the train of death coming at you!)
