Jello Instant Depression

This might be the most depressing commercial I’ve ever seen. After the existential despair of the first 25 seconds, our harried housekeeper appears to have just two choices - hang herself in the closet or make some Jello Pudding.

Who knew that “The Busy-Day Dessert” could head off despair? Who knew that Jello Pudding was “nourishing?”

Seriously. The angry scribbling over the face of the harried housekeeper, suggestive enough of self-harm, combined with the bizarre, stilted cadence of that disembodied voice..."din-ner time oh din-ner time" is incredibly scary!
