Yes, our tax dollars, hard at work:
“Fruved” – as in FRUits/VEgetables… Get it?
And the “Get Fruved” website has such an oh-so-clever tagline:
“You can go fruve yourself.”
Via The Daily Caller: Feds spend millions dressing creepy students up as fruits, vegetables
The federal government gave nearly $5 million to the University of Tennessee in support of its creepy healthy-eating campaign, which dresses students up as fruits and vegetables and films them terrorizing the residence halls.
It’s called “Get Fruved.”
The campaign already has a website and YouTube account, where it has posted several “Get Fruved” videos. The videos feature college students disguised as various fruits and vegetables, such as grapes and carrots.
In one video, the male students in the grape costume approaches a female student and says, “You’re looking grape today!”
The goal of the campaign — which was generously subsidized by taxpayers to the tune of $5 million — is to convince young people to adopt healthier lifestyles….
Because nothing says “eat healthier” than an attack by a lunatic grape.
