Food has feelings too

Actor, comedian and filmmaker Seth Rogen took over a supermarket recently when he got cheeky with some talking fruit to promote the film Sausage Party and show the people of New York that food has feelings.

However, food can be pretty mean too, as a cantaloupe, loaf of bread and a sausage scare and taunt those browsing the aisles, asking for their names and commenting on their looks. The cantaloupe refers to one man as the KFC Colonel and the sausage mocks a man for being a "hipster".

Some supermarket goers opt to taunt the food back with one woman eating melon in front of the cantaloupe and a man tearing bread apart in front of the talking loaf to eating it while saying: "this is your mother".

Sausage Party is a rated film about a group of supermarket products who, led by a sausage, find out the true meaning of their existence when they make it to a customers home - they get eaten.
