Happy Fourth of July! Are you getting ready to head outside with some cold drinks to chill, and some cold meats to grill? Seth Rogen, in the form of Frank the Sausage, wants you to rethink that plan. In his new movie Sausage Party, “meat is murder” isn’t just a catchphrase. The meat is literally still alive, as far as he’s concerned, and you are literally burning his pals alive. So in this public service announcement, via Entertainment Weekly, he urges you to take a moment and think about that. And he doesn’t even go for the obvious “put a wiener in your mouth” joke.
Are you a vegetarian, and think you’re somehow safe from Frank’s guilt-tripping? Hell no! In his world, bread is alive, and getting painfully slashed to pieces. Heads of lettuce, when they become salad, are getting their brains ripped apart. Poor potato chips are a close-knit family until you tear their home open like a fleshy tornado with fingers. He may be asking folks to blow up their barbecue grills, but his next step is a full-scale food grab. Do not fall for his unhappy, emoji-like face–this wiener-head wants you to starve!
Should you appease him now, knowing he’d leave you hungry later? We can’t make that decision for you. We’ll only note that he has said nothing about beer. YET.
Are you digging this movie’s beefy sense of humor? We’ll “meat” you down in the comments and you can stick it to us.
