Katy Perry's Popchip Ads Are A Lot Less Offensive Than Ashton Kutcher's

When it was announced that Katy Perry signed on to endorse Popchips, it seemed the brand probably wanted to go in a different direction than their Ashton Kutcher ads. A major backlash arose after their ad featured him in "brownface" parodying a Bollywood producer, with many claiming it was racist and offensive. Popchips ultimately pulled the ad.

The Katy Perry ads are a lot less likely to offend, though still maintain some edginess with overt references to her breasts. "Nothing fake about 'em" reads one ad, with a photo of two bags of Popchips covering her chest. AdWeek writes that in the ads, Perry "generally hams it up in the most bubblegummy way possible."
