To answer the question in the title, it’s social engineering. We can’t seem to escape it. Interestingly, Baby Riley is wearing a hoodie just like Trayvon Martin wore. Predictive programming?
Gerber, the dumb libturds that they are, screwed themselves with this choice. Read the story and I’ll explain how.
A seven-month-old boy from Ohio is the new face of Gerber baby products.
Though he probably won’t be saying much anytime soon, the spokesbaby named Riley has an ‘infectious laugh and big, gummy smile’, according to his mom, Kristen Shines.
Gerber announced Thursday that Riley, who lives with his family in Lewis Center, beat out more than 110,000 other entries. He now has the chance to star in a future ad.
Riley’s parents will receive $50,000 plus $1,500 in Gerber clothing. Shines says the money will help start a college fund for her son.
The annual Gerber baby photo search began seven years ago. It pays homage to Ann Turner Cook, whose face has been featured on Gerber’s packaging since 1928. She celebrated her 90th birthday in November.
Riley’s parents told Us Weekly the infant hasn’t let the fame go to his head. His dad Devin said: ‘He’s a laid-back guy.’
‘He only gets fussy when he needs to nap or if he has a wet diaper. Even when he’s hungry he’ll just kind of hint at you like, “Hey, I could use some more food.”‘
Mom Kristen said: ‘If all babies were this easy, the world would be way more populated!’
Gerber is based in Florham Park, New Jersey, and is a unit of Nestle SA, based in Vevey, Switzerland.
Oh yeah, the cutest baby in America is gonna pop out of THAT womb. Geez, mom is sure ugly.
Now, how did Gerber screw up? The word “shine” is a disparaging term for a person of African descent. It comes from the traditional black occupation of shoe shine boy.
What’s the baby’s name? Riley Shines.
Riley Shines = Riley Nigger.
Is Gerber trolling us?
