Chantix’s “Paddleboard Turkey”

Well, everybody’s heard about the bird…the Chantix turkey, that is! And while I’m aware that the turkey is paddleboarding rather than surfing, they missed a great chance to use 1963’s Surfin’ Bird by the Trashmen as the sound track for this commercial!

Now there was foreshadowing for this commercial in the last one when we saw the turkey getting out his flip-flops, knocking them together, arranging seashells, and looking at beach scenes on his phone. We shoulda seen this coming, folks. And as I’ve said before, this turkey has a better life than I do. He even returns from his beach visit in the coolest little convertible vehicle that suits him perfectly!

In my twisted mind, I can see Peter Griffin from Family Guy either getting into a dance-off or perhaps a fistfight with the turkey. And like Peter Griffin, “I dream of an America where everybody knows that the bird is the word.” Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow!

    Let’s hope he doesn’t get mistaken for a seal by one of those eponymous eating machines from Shark Week.*

    *Starts tomorrow on Discovery Channel. Consult your local listings. This has been a shameless cross-plug. 😉

    Is that an actual model vehicle , if so what make/model is it? I am not sure and it looks like several different vehicles to me.

      I’m no car expert, and can readily see the vehicle as being a composite, although someone commented to me that the turkey was driving a Scout. If I can find out more, I’ll post an additional comment or maybe someone else will…
