Talking Food Gets Amusingly Raunchy in Culinary School Spots Pastry is seductive, ducks are borderline gross—but funny

The San Diego Culinary Institute has a trio of talking food commercials that are funny, albeit in a dumb way, but also a lot more sexually charged than this kind of ad tends to be. The “Napoleon” ad at least tries to be a little seductive (and who among us hasn't been seduced by dessert before? Don't lie to yourselves), but the “Ducks” spot borders on flat-out inappropriate. I mean, I'm OK with it, but I hope the institute knows what it's getting into. Some of its incoming applications might get pretty strange. Created by San Francisco agency Muh-tay-zik | Hoff-fer.
