Targeted provocation: True Fruits announces sexist scribbles against the penis
They did it again. Smoothies maker True Fruits is currently promoting a provocative social media campaign for one of its drinks. This time under the spotlight of the teenager "Hihi, they said penis" The humans of the Bonn company: a passion-peach fruit juice called "Sun Creamie", which looks a lot like a sunscreen relatively well known in Germany .
The bottle of smoothie is mounted in the image of a woman who apparently laughs on the beach. On her back, someone with sunscreen painted an ejaculating penis.

That the similarity of the design of the bottle is also calculated with that of another brand product, in the hope of creating even more excitement? That in Bonn they still did not understand that their campaigns "bizarre black" and "even more bottles from abroad" were perceived as racist? The answer probably only knows True Fruits.
But what we understand is that they obviously do not know the meaning of the word "Cumback" in True Fruits. According to the "Urban Dictionary" since 2011, it is a sexual practice in which the ejaculate is spat out after oral sex in the mouth of the "unsuspecting partner".
