Blago, Snooki in latest nutty pistachio spots


Wonderful Pistachios continues its idiots and assholes campaign (not its official name, but an apt one) with new spots starring Rod Blagojevich, the disgraced former governor of Illinois, and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, the disgraceful party girl from New Jersey. In the Blago spot, a mysterious character hands him a briefcase. He opens it, and loads of pistachios spill out. "Rod Blagojevich does it innocently," says the voiceover. In a statement, Blago says: "The contents in the suitcase are like the accusations against me—they're nuts." In the Snooki spot, she uses a tanning bed to crack open a nut. "Snooki does it with UV rays," says the voiceover. The client claims to be looking for "buzz factor" with the ads, which have also featured the likes of Levi Johnston, Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry. Check out four other new spots after the jump, starring R. Lee Ermey, Lewis Black, Keyboard Cat and a vampire.
