Singing roadkill hawks Bosch wiper blades in bizarre ad
Bosch has scared up a truly bizarre commercial starring a band of zombified roadkill puppets that rise from the dead each night to sing to drivers about the dangers of old wiper blades. There’s even a rapping skunk.
A dead squirrel with haunting green eyes pops up from the road to start singing R&B, and a deceased deer then picks up the next verse. The spot, somehow, gets weirder from there. There’s even a website that delves into the backstories of these deceased woodland creatures and “what they’re doing in their afterlife.”
The whole video is strangely mesmerizing, the tune is distressingly catchy, and we’d like to say the zombie creatures are endearing … but they’re actually sort of disturbing. The ad was produced in partnership with The Humane Society as part of an initiative to protect the lives of wild animals. The message is a helpful one, but the medium is a bit unusual.
