Mother's Day is May 14th, and Skittles just dropped this weird AF commercial to celebrate. You may want to watch this before you rush out to buy your mom her favorite candy.

The commercial starts off normal enough, with a mother and son pair enjoying a pack of Skittles together. Except, wait. Only the mother is eating the candies, but the son seems to be able to taste them, too? What is going on here?

Oh dear god.

Yuck.

Why?

No.

Yeah, you and your mom might be close, but you are not that close.

I mean, I have to hand it to Skittles. They regularly top themselves when it comes to producing weird commercials.

What any of this has to do with candy I have no idea, but I guess the advertisement worked: this commercial will be burned into my memory forever.

Taste the rainbow?
