Fake Grey Poupon Spot Is Fake

Sadly, the “banned Grey Poupon ad” scoring clicks on Reddit and other web aggregators today is not real: it was posted on YouTube by OBVS, which seems to stand for “Online Broadcast Virtual Station” but could just as easily (and more appropriately) mean “OBVS produced by my up-and-coming sketch comedy troupe, bro.”

There’s also the fact that it doesn’t exactly introduce any new ideas, playing instead on a superior campaign that most of our readers still hated–and that it takes us back to the time when the brand really was defined by its ads.

Still, the clip made us chuckle, however briefly. And it’s a Monday.
