Anyone who had the misfortune of stumbling on their parents having sex when they were a child knows that it’s a life-changing event – and not in a good way. Most of us just suppressed the memory. Well, pasta sauce giant Ragu wants to help kids in the healing process.
Here’s their latest commercial, which has been airing during Olympic coverage. It’s incredibly weird.
Mediaite broke down the lyrics. They are amazing.
Cue the faux-country jingle: “Parents in bed / but it’s just 8 o’clock / that’s why they taught you / you should always knock.”
The cure for this traumatic moment? “He needs Ragú / ’cause growin’ up’s tough,” says the singer over the song’s climax (geez, guys, no pun intended) as chubby boy walks away horrified. “Give him Ragú, he’s been through enough.”
Thanks, gang. Now I’ll never be able to eat spaghetti without thinking of mom and dad humping.
