(AP) The world just met a frightening creature out of a nightmare called the Puppymonkeybaby.
PepsiCo introduced the hybrid animal with an ad for its Mountain Dew Kickstart.
The ad plays off the idea that Kickstart is “three awesome things combined” — “Dew,” juice and caffeine. Likewise, the ad features a dancing creature that is a mashup of a puppy, a monkey and a baby.
Once you remember that Kickstart is marketed toward younger men, the ad might make a little more sense. According to its website, the drinks are 5 percent juice, with a 12-ounce can containing 60 calories.
