The Dirtiest Shrek Product Tie-In Ever

Don’t even ask about the ingredients in this one:

Mint Ogreload

  • Chris Sobieniak

    The kind of promotional craziness only a fast food giant bothers to come up with.


  • I guess the donkey bukake banana split will be released next week?

  • With Shrek filling!

    “Goodnight everybody!”

  • Don’t care about Shrek, but I’d love an Aero McFlurry. Aero bars are rare in my neck of the woods.

  • Maple leaf on the golden arches. Oh, Canada…

  • Edwin Austin


  • Mr. Smartypantsl

    After returning from the dentist with a heavily anesthetized lower jaw, Shrek’s anger compelled him to throw the grenade he had been saving into open traffic.

  • “I wonder what he’s up to in there.”

  • Ed Thompson

    I remember Bugs Bunny doing commercials for Tang breakfast drink, Fred and Barney doing ones for some cigarette company (I don’t remember which ones) and a whole lot of cartoons which were Post cereal mascots. I don’t know about the movie yet but using the character for advertising is not anything new nor upsetting, at least to me.

  • Matthew

    At least we can count on Jerry to act like a grown-up and post relevant topics that are of interest to a broad spectrum of readers.

  • erlab

    What’s so different than the tie-in they had with Hagen Daaz for Shrek 2? They had similar flavors. And I don’t see anything disgusting about this one.

    Looks like another “Amid” post.

  • Tarddlers 2: Baby Auschwitz

    Erlab, the point is its an ogre’s load in the ice cream.

  • tommy

    Erlab, the joke is that “load” is slang for the result of a male orgasm.

  • Rob

    I get it, and it is gross.

    Giving them full benefit of the doubt, I’m assuming Aero bars are European? If so, does the term ‘load’ have the same connotations that it does over here in the states?

  • I am not loving it. Not even a little bit.

  • OM

    …General comments on this Shrek tie-in is that it’s almost as much death-by-taste as those “Horton Hears a Who” waffle-cakes were from IHOP while I was getting “Stumpy” back about this time in 2008. Both of these combined sound like they’d make that hospital swill I had to eat for three months seem appealing.

  • The fact that you can make a jizz joke makes me think that there might be a chance we can be friends after all.

  • “Ogre-load”. Sheesh.

    This is as bad as when they called them McWraps. (Ma-crap). Now they call them something different when after a few years they figured out how it sounded.

  • Tedzey

    Its a parfait made with cake and onions. All of which have alot of layers… like Ogres!

  • Roberto Severino

    I’m not getting the joke here. What the Shrek does this mean anyway? Very confused.

  • Shawn

    Mmmm, Aero candy. Double entendres regarding the use of ‘load’ aside, I totally want to eat whatever that concoction is. It has mint, it has chocolate, it has Aero candy. All of these things are good.

  • Jeff

    “I’m not getting the joke here. What the Shrek does this mean anyway? Very confused.”

    I think it’s supposed to be “Mint Overload”, but they replaced “over” with “ogre”.

  • james

    This post is lame. Something about animation would be useful.

  • Celia

    I’m not convinced that ogre load is “minty”. sorry

  • Phil

    Hah, this one’s on my route into town.

  • Chris S

    What do you suppose McShrek is doing with his right hand? Trying to make Ogre-load, and by the expression on his face, it looks like he made it. Yuck, and I agree with Celia, I don’t think it would be very minty…

  • John



  • Huh. Is it possible to design a billboard without actually “designing” it? I think this photo answers that question.

  • Chris Sobieniak

    Yeah this is a Canadian McD’s ad indeed. I often see those commercials on CBC myself. Most American companies such as those in the fast food industry usually have to have a maple leaf placed somewhere on their logo up there (I guess it’s a law or something).

  • @Rob

    Like Trevour pointed out, it’s a billboard in Canada. You can get Aero bars on every streetcorner here and ‘load’ has EXACTLY the same connotations as it does in the states, you know, because we’re Canada.

    Also, I love Aero bars, but I think I’d be too ashamed to order this McFlurry…

  • doop

    About 7 Shrek posts in a week? I’d say marketing is working well.

  • Chris Sobieniak

    Bothering to look up Aero bars, it appears we Americans are missing out unless we have a dedicated store selling international products that may offer them anyway (one or two attempts to sell the product domestically have happened but failed to make any dent, so we can’t really blame ’em for trying).

  • samster


  • Wait, they don’t have Aero bars in the states?!!!!

  • Ew. After reading the 20 worst drinks list from the “Eat This, Not That” stuff floating around recently, I’m passing this up either way.

  • Tiffany

    Is it wrong that I didn’t get the entendre and was more worried about the calories?

  • Christopher Cook

    In this economy I am consigned to mining salt for McDogfood’s, and I find it bemusing that people would clamor for the damn Shrek glasses, let alone a frozen treat with the Shrek name on it (malapropism/double entendre or not). Materialism will surely destroy us all.

  • Aeros rule. The actual product is probably delicious. Plus, it gives you the chance to be super-creepy: take a bite, stare at someone, and go “mmmmmm, ogre load…”

  • Areo’s are good, McFlurries are good, but it’s kinda shameful to buy it with Shrek’s face on it…

  • I can’t believe you guys. The only way you can get a jizz joke out of this is if you are excessively horny, crazy, or deliberately straining for some hidden meaning. It’s just a lame pun on “ogre”/”overload”.

  • Chris Sobieniak

    “Wait, they don’t have Aero bars in the states?!!!!”

    I didn’t quite say it that way, you just have to look a little further to get them. They’re not going to be something you can just get at 7-Eleven (much in the way those fans of Japanese snacks have to go out of their way to find it).

    Reading the billboard again, it was obvious they needed a pun or “overload” but that was the result.

  • The layout isn’t doing anything for me either. Shrek looks like he’s about to fall off the board.

  • Rooniman

    I don’t know wether to laugh or puke.

  • Zach Cole

    Gross, yes, but Aero Bars are amazing.

  • Charles

    I work at a World Market, we sell Aero Bars. It’s a chocolate bar full of tiny little bubbles, it melts in your mouth after a moment or two.

    But Ogre-load, lol.
