Popcorn Now Available in Spicy Brains Flavor!

Undead Orville Redenbacher

Yes, that’s right. Not even death can save you from being a pitchman. Orville Redenbacher was CG-resurrected for a new popcorn ad. And he’s lodged firmly in the Uncanny Valley, if you know what I mean. It aired on the Golden Globes so maybe it’s on YouTube, but I’m sure as hell not going to go looking for it. The still is creepy enough as it stands.

Apparently ConAgra is the company behind this decision, but my inside sources tell me that ConAgra was recently acquired clandestinely by some company called The Umbrella Corporation? I dunno, it rings a bell, but I can’t quite place it…
