Make Halo Top Remove Their Horrible Commercial

This petition had 599 supporters

I am writing this petition to share my displeasure over Halo Top's recent commercial ( robot ice cream).

While I understand the commercial was meant to be provocative and subversive, it too closely mimics real life abuse and neglect of senior citizens. 

Having worked in the senior care field, the image of a helpless and disheveled older woman in what looks like a hospital gown, being force fed inadvertently paints a very real and painful image for families. Additionally, the line stating " everyone you love is gone" comes of incredibly cruel and heartless in that context. I understand that might not have been the intention but it's undeniable to many, this hits entirely too close to home. Simply having a younger person would have made the commerical better and had more of a sci-fi, obscure vision. 

I can appreciate creative marketing and while this ad definitely has me talking about Halo Top, it has turned me and many off to the product completely. This is a disturbing commercial for many and should be removed.
