Oreo Cookies

Supposed to Go Public

Oreo cookies breastfeeding advertisement
The Oreo cookies advertisement featuring a breastfeeding baby was NEVER intended for public consumption ... this according to the people at Kraft Foods.

The ad went viral earlier this week ... with several media outlets reporting it was a legitimate South Korean ad created by the Cheil Worldwide ad agency.

Now, a rep for Kraft -- the company behind the cookie -- tells TMZ, "Kraft Foods did not create this ad. It has never run in Korea or any other markets."

The rep adds, "This ad was created by our agency for a one-time use at an advertising forum. The ad was never intended for public distribution or use with consumers."

It's not that breast feeding is offensive....It's just extremely hard to dunk an oreo while breast feeding.

I thought it was an awesomely hilarious ad. I don't understand why some are so disgusted by a baby eating. I would much rather watch a baby breastfeed then a morbidly obese person at a buffet and yet that is socially acceptable.

Their explanation sound fair enough for me. I am sure ad agencies put together commercials all the time that never end up getting out there for various reasons. Like this.
