Nerf Has A Nightmarish New Mascot Named Murph

This one might make you check under your bed before going to sleep tonight. For the first time ever, Nerf has a mascot. And many on social media are describing it … well … like a nightmare.

Murph is “built” with the foam darts famously used in Nerf products. It’s basically a monster-looking creature made up of hundreds of the Nerf darts. The company says Murph has no set sex or gender and no facial features.

Just kind of a blob-ish character (straight out of a scary movie?!) Murph’s catchphrase: “Unleash the play in you.”

What do you think about Murph? What are some other mascots or characters used in commercials over the years that maybe missed the mark?
