UPDATE: Video re-uploaded.

A still from a new Vitamin Water commercial tells viewers to “Try Sperm.”

What the…?

Was resting on the couch enjoying some re-runs of family guy when the attached commercial caught my eye. Lucky I’m “cool” enough to have a dvr so i was able to rewind and take an amazing photo, as well as record the entire commercial.

If you watch the video, they’re actually saying, “Try a nice spot of fly-fishing in a tank of hungry sperm whales. Try power-c. Try it.” The left side says “try” while the words change on the right. Not that that makes any more sense.
