Apparently Jamba Juice isn’t happy with McDonald’s decision to get into the smoothie business, and it’s fighting back the only way it knows how: with a sad, rather hastily assembled commercial advertising its own fictitious and thoroughly revolting “Cheeseburger Chill” smoothie.
The problem — aside from the flaccid “rap” that accompanies the ad — is that, instead of making the viewer rue the horrible injustice of one fast-food corporation cribbing from another’s playbook, it makes the Jamba Juice logo synonymous with what appears to be the contents of a colostomy bag. Whether that’s more disgusting than the concept of so-called health drinks that contain 100 grams of sugar is open to debate, but still, ew.
