A lighthearted Pringles commercial that aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday had a surprise, albeit possibly accidental, pro-life message.
The commercial features a grandfather holding up a clear sonogram picture of a baby whose hand is stuck in a Pringles can. The grandfather says “Even your little cousin Timmy” gets his hand stuck when eating Pringles.
The ad begins when a young boy gets his hand stuck in a Pringles can, an all-too-often occurrence given the can’s thin cylindrical design. His grandfather assures him, “Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us.”
“It does?” the grandson asks.
The grandfather goes on to explain that it happens to “surgeons, judges, airport ground crew” and finally “even your little cousin Timmy,” whose sonogram image clearly shows a baby with a photoshopped Pringles can around his hand.
The sonogram image prominently featured in the most-watched TV event in America was praised by pro-lifers as bringing attention to the humanity of unborn children, even if it was with a photoshopped Pringles can.
