Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You rings in the Christmas season yearly, and now the queen of the festive season is fronting an advert for British chip brand Walkers in iconic fashion—with a Christmas theme.
However, many internet users are divided over the commercial, describing it as the “worst Christmas advert.”
The spot envisions the singer battling with an elf over pigs-in-a-blanket-flavored chips in the midst of her wintry music video performance. She then uses her legendary high-pitched vocals to win over the packet.
The moment that has sparked the internet’s fury, though, is when she takes a petty bite of a chip, which comes across as odd to some as you have to show you like chips if you’re in a snack chip ad. Carey was reportedly paid US$11 million for the advert.
“I can’t cope with how Mariah eats her crisp in the Walkers ad,” one Twitter user writes, while another user tweets, “Can someone tell Mariah Carey how to eat a crisp properly?”
As the crowd’s favorite for the festive season, the 49-year-old will also have her face featured on 50 million chip packets across Britain this festive season, since it’s only fair for the queen of Christmas to be the mascot for Christmas.
Take a look at some reactions to the confusing commercial below.
Cannot stop laughing at the stupid #walkers advert where Mariah Carey will not eat the crisps she's being paid to advertise. I don't even think she's holding a real crisp. Marks also lost for failing to use a "crispmas" pun. pic.twitter.com/mBrydcMDtn— Dr. Lauren McIntyre (@noddinggoth) November 11, 2019

If I went on a first and he ate crisps like Mariah does in the Walkers advert; I’d grab my coat and leave immediately!!! #mariahWalkers— Mr Al (@MrAl81) November 11, 2019
New Walkers advert with Mariah Carey is hilarious. She's blatantly disgusted by crisps so takes the tiniest mouse nibble. pic.twitter.com/tAoJKtoRgW— Todd Collier (@ToddCollierFilm) November 12, 2019
That @walkers_crisps advert with Mariah Carey is seriously the worst Christmas advert I’ve ever seen, what’s with the smallest bite of a crisp ever, hopefully they shorten it soon to loss that high pitch noise she makes 🙉 whoever came up with this idea needs a career change 😠 pic.twitter.com/wwAnuSdr2g— Wayne 😕 (@1WayneBrown) November 10, 2019
