Tesco Criticised For 'Sinister' New Pizza Advert

There’s nothing like a giant advert displayed on building-size billboards to make you wonder - who thought that was a good idea?

Now a Tesco advert has been called into question by customers who think there’s something a little sinister at play than just making dinner.

Nick Murphy, director at Sky Atlantic, took a picture of the advert displayed outside a Tesco Express store on South Wharf Road, Paddington, which depicts a man and a woman serving up pizza to friends.

Instead of looking like a welcoming host, the model in the picture looks pretty sinister (just look at those eyebrows).

Murphy tweeted: “Tesco needs to be told, their advert man has poisoned the pizza and intends to watch men die.”

And Murphy isn’t the only one who thinks Tesco could have chosen a better image.  

This advert is following on from the brand’s ‘Food Love Stories’ campaign, which also divided customers, with many calling it “nauseating” and cringeworthy.

Better luck next time Tesco.
