To help get into the Christmas spirit, or to help encourage your disdain for the holiday, ad agency Zulu Alpha Kilo created an ad campaign “featuring cute gingerbread men doing horrible things to one another.”
The series was created as a holiday promotion for horror magazine Fangoria, and includes “Death by Cheese Grater,” Death by Rolling Pin,” and “Death by Toaster.” What, no death by Ninja attack?
Ho, ho… Oh no!! The Santa Claus Meatloaf is brought to us by Chef Charles Phoenix. Complete with meat face, ketchup hat, and mashed potato beard — it’s the perfect recipe you can try out to help ruin Christmas for everyone.
Especially the kids, who were going to stay up late waiting for this scary meat guy to come sliding down their chimney.
If you’ll be getting your nog on this Christmas, and have trouble deciding between egg nog brands, try not to be swayed by the fancy packaging. Actually, without anyone ever realizing, egg nog packaging has consistently been some of the most garish and questionably-designed food packaging at the supermarket.
The Egg Nog Project, by designer Madeleine Eiche, is a collection of these crimes against graphic design and color theory. The nog cartons seen in the series range from the slightly garish and laughably minimalistic, to mind-numbingly ugly. Ehh, nothing a little rum can’t fix.
