This is hands-down the weirdest ad I've ever seen

We've seen plenty of weird and wonderful ads over the years, but not many that choose to highlight product safety and Lesbian Visibility Week through the medium of giant wasps. But that's exactly what the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has done, and it's kind of amazing.

You wouldn't expect an organisation as seemingly prosaic as the USCPSC to be known for its wacky social media ads, but here we are. The meme-filled official government Twitter page has been entertaining users for years, and its latest ad might be its weirdest yet. (Looking for more inspiration?
