Ad for Popped Wheat Thins Has the World’s Slowest Airborne Police Chase

He's getting away!

Wheat Thins revisits the golden age of ballooning in this weird spot from New York agency Being for the cracker brand's new air-popped snacks.

Why they went with cops trying to pull someone over, I have no idea; the concept doesn't really need them, and neither does the visual gag they're setting up (being outpaced by a slow-moving bird). But I suppose the randomness is part of the charm.

I suppose Wheat Thins probably should be a controlled substance, though. They taste too good to not be drugs somehow.
