Disturbing ad

There's a new ad campaign for double stuff oreos involving Peyton and Eli Manning. For those of you who don't know, they're the quarterbacks of the Indianapolis Colts and the New York Giants, respectively. For those of you who don't know, the Indianapolis Colts and New York Giants are NFL teams. For those of you who don't know, NFL stands for National Football League. For those of you who don't know, you're on your own at this point.

Anyway, the new ad campaign has the two of them (Peyton and Eli, remember?) becoming "Two Sport Athletes" with the second sport being the Double Stuff Licking League or something like that. The tv commercial shows the two of them licking oreo cream filling quickly.

The disturbing ad is a web ad that continues this theme. The text on the ad reads: You could win a trip for your family to lick race against the Mannings & $10,000.

Aside from the fact that they wrote the sentence wrong and are suggesting that $10,000 will be competing against your family in licking cream filling, does anyone else think the phrase "lick race against the Mannings" or for that matter just "lick race" is going to conjure all kinds of images they didn't intend?
