Fruit Salad Oliver Stone Ad (Joke/Proposed)

Oliver Stone, the great American director of films like Seizure and The Hand (Just kidding: he also made Platoon, Wall Street, JFK, etc.), is on record making fun of the wall of awards and decorations on the jackets of military higher-ups in the American Armed Forces, calling them: “fruit salad” on their jackets. (I think it was in his TV show: The Untold History of the United States.)

So I thought it would be fun for a brand of fruit salad to make an ad with Oliver Stone as their spokesman, and as film of military guys giving testimony plays, he makes fun of the “fruit salad” on their jackets. Then we cut to Oliver Stone, and he holds up the brand of fruit salad, takes a bite, and says: “This is the only fruit salad I’d want on my jacket!” And then he’d throw some on his jacket.

In its silliness, I think this could win fans and haters of Stone’s alike.

(BTW: He did also make: Seizure and: The Hand earlier in his career.)
