Last night, in the midst of the Jax cheating on Brittany drama, something equally scandalous happened: a very strange commercial starring Tom Sandoval, James, Scheana, and Kristen and the cast of Pitch Perfect 3. The commercial was called “The 12 Days Of Pitchmas,” and it was a hot mess. I told a loyal IG follower I would dissect it in the recap, but honestly I forgot, so here is an entire dedicated article to this weird-ass commercial instead.
Okay, so first of all, I was not aware that a Pitch Perfect 3 was happening, and honestly I’m kind of annoyed about it. I never saw the first Pitch Perfect, but I can accept that it was probably a funny movie. But funny enough to have two more sequels? I doubt it, especially given that they couldn’t get Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow or Anna Kendrick to even appear in this commercial. Besides, how deep do you think the world of a cappella really goes? I’d venture about as deep as any of the cast of Vanderpump Rules’ emotional depth. Hm, maybe that was why they matched up for the ad in the first place?
So basically this commercial is like, a hip-hop remake of “The 12 Days Of Christmas”, to give you an idea of how much to prepare your facial muscles to cringe. The link between Vanderpump Rules, Pitch Perfect, and Christmas is extremely tenuous, and it took me about three more views to even realize what was being advertised (one of my friends thought it was an ad for Revlon). Some of my favorite moments from this clusterfuck include:
-Tom Sandoval’s heavy autotune.
-Kristen attempting to snap with attitude like this is 2004.
-Scheana scream-singing “five non-engagement rings” with a level of anger that is definitely misplaced, coming from the person who ended her own marriage. She’s also rocking some very Scheana season 1 hair extensions and just looks generally possessed.
It’s all topped off by some very cringeworthy dancing where it looks like Kristen, Scheana, Tom, and James are trying to do the dance from Lil Jon’s “Snap Yo Fingers.” It’s bad. James is hands down the best one in the whole commercial, which says a lot. But don’t just take my word for it—watch the whole commercial below before it gets taken down when everyone involved realizes how terrible this turned out.
