That Popchips company thinks it’s funny to have dull-witted spokesmodel / dull-witted investor Ashton Kutcher* do some free YouTube videos only to take them down if they prove too controversial.
All right, Popchips, here’s the thing: The problem with the video wasn’t that it was “controversial.”
The problem was that it was stupid.
Oh, and not funny.
Not funny at all.
Did you all think enough to say something, Popchips people? Something like, “Yeah, Ashton, we know you want to do these videos, but they’re not good.” Oh, you all just thought that, but you didn’t want to actually say anything at the time? Well that’s just not going to fly.

And if newfangled Popchips turn out to cause cancer, then you the consumer just might end up dead from buying something that made dull-witted spokesmodel / dull-witted Popchips investor*** Ashton Kutcher ever so slightly richer.
You wouldn’t want that, would you?
*He reminds me of our similarly dull-witted former Mayor Gavin Newsom, for some reason.** Hey, whatever happened to that guy?
**Oh, maybe it was the Fiji Water I was reminded of. Our former Mayor just loved his Fiji Water, of course. I could totally see Gavin becoming a dull-witted spokesmodel / dull-witted investor / Brand Ambassador for the Fiji Water.
***Back in the day, famous actor O.J. Simpson similarly invested in HoneyBaked Ham. You know, because he liked the company. But OJ had the sense to not do stupid commercials for Honeybaked.
