Skittles Urges You to Question Authority (Sponsored Video)

Skittles concludes its survey of the damnable teen years with the most painful revelation of all: That those we relied upon to guide us through the rocky shoals of life, those we presumed would provide us the tools by which we’d eventually make our own way to adulthood, were consumed by weakness and self-interest, and just as fallible.

In the sponsored video below, young Abby seeks only confirmation of her own worth, yet finds, on the one hand, cruel exploitation by her peer group; on the other, condescension and, yes, more exploitation by a trusted adult. A bitter lesson to learn, but at least there’s tasty candy to soften the blow.
