What's with the weirdly-sexual anthropomorphization of condiments all of a sudden? First, we're treated to the bizzaro Sex and The City-inspired Flavor Sprays commercial (the first in a series called Sprays in the City); now French's Mustard has launched a site with webisodes about a hot dog who finds true love with an alluring bottle of mustard. This ad is much less overtly sexual than the Sprays in the City clip, thank god. Another plus: the voice of the hot dog is not Mark McGrath.
