SANTA CLARA, California – Mountain Dew’s puppy monkey baby Super Bowl commercial didn’t go over so well with some viewers, some said it was right on the edge of being cute or creepy.
The commercial showed some friends drinking the new Kickstart drink when the hybrid shows up and starts singing.
The drink is a combination of Dew, juice and caffeine.
#PuppyMonkeyBaby started trending shortly after the commercial aired.
