Popeye's Chicken Sandwich, and the American Obsession with TV "fame"
Clearly, the people in this ad just wanted to be on television. They didn't care if they had to be disgusting. They didn't care if they had to act as if a sandwich had become the center of their universe. Heck, they didn't care if the director told them to act as if they wanted to have non-consensual sex with that sandwich. As long as the result was promised Face Time on TV, they were willing to do anything. Which is why we see two fat ugly people describe the mystical experience they are having with a pile of fried ground chicken slavered with mayo, and another girl doing nothing more than pointing at the sandwich she apparently tried and failed to completely jam into her ridiculous maw and giving us "It good me eat you eat too" vibes.
Personally, I'd rather be anonymous than in a position where people might be texting me asking "hey is that your ridiculous fat face making a total ass of yourself in a freaking Popeye's commercial?" But hey, that's just me.
