ABC's terribly egregious new ad for It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown has the misfortune of arriving in front of a hostile marketplace already outraged by the exhumation of Chris Farley for a DirectTV ad, a marketing gaffe that robbed the late comedian of his most notable trait: dignity. Is ABC's Pumpkin commercial (as pointed out by EW) any worse than that? It is, because Charlie Brown raps.

Hey party people

It's Charlie B

Bringing Halloween Tuesday

To ABC!

And it continues, in the video below. "Good grief" suddenly seems like too insufficient of a phrase.
