The Product: M&Ms

The Premise: The yellow peanut M&M has been kidnapped after twerking in a pre-game teaser. He’s brought to a mobster’s house in the trunk of a car, where he awaits his fate.

The Punchline: The problem is, he can’t understand it. Always agreeable, he doesn’t realize that he’s about to be chopped up for an ice cream sundae.

The Verdict: The real moral of the story? Do not twerk.
