Harnessing a Few Laughs

Published on .

Dairy Queen continues to hip up its image. It's in the process of becoming just DQ now, which we can understand, since Dairy Queen sounds a bit like a lactating transvestite. This particular spot, called "Baby Bjorn," could be for anything, but it boasts some hilarious digital sight gags, as a baby, strapped to daddy's chest, head-butts and knee-groins his poor father because the old man won't give him any ice cream. This spot is a forbidden treat-kinda like DQ ice cream.
