#108 – Heinz Very, Very Sorry for Link to German Porn Site on Ketchup Bottle – Yeah, Right!

EDITORIAL: Kraft sexualized food and since they merged with Heinz, guess we can see they’ve turned them to the dark side. There’s a ton of sexualized food commercials out right now. This is just one more way sex addict executives make money while exposing their consumers to hyper-sexuality. They knew exactly what would happen. Porn attaching to anything they can exploit for media attention is one of Porn Valley’s main marketing tools. They are media leeches.

I’ll take Del Monte any day of the week and there’s other good replacements for every single thing they sell. Say NO to sexualizing our food!

Heinz Very, Very Sorry for Link to German Porn Site on Ketchup Bottle

Theoretically, an incorrect hyperlink could point to any random place on the internet, fromSonic fan art forums to Fusion.com. In practice, however, they only link to porn, porn and slightly weirder porn, as was recently the case with an unusually saucy bottle of Heinz hot ketchup.

Thanks to the unnamed cosmic law of accidental porn links, Daniel Korell of Germany found himself on camgirl site Fundorado after scanning the promotional QR code on a Heinz bottle.From The Local:

Heinz’s ownership of the website for the contest, which ran between 2012 and 2014, had since expired. The bottle was a leftover which had only been filled with ketchup and sold after the contest was over.

Porn site Fundorado had jumped into the gap and registered Heinz’s former address for itself, meaning that Heinz’s defunct shortcut now pointed to a page full of graphic thumbnail images linking to porn videos.

After Korell alerted Heinz to their mistake via social media, the ketchup maker issued a hasty apology, writing, “we really regret the event very much.”

Fundorado, on the other hand, has turned the error into a promotional tool of their own, proudly running a banner on their site reading, “JA, DAS ORIGINAL VON DER KETCHUP FLASCHE!”
