Aubrey Plaza is back in the headlines with her deadpan comedy style! It all happened due to her recent appearance in a commercial for a fake company called Wood Milk. As she was seen mocking the plant-based milk, she got into major backlash when vegans started expressing their thoughts on the advertisement which they felt was wrong on so many levels.
While she continues to face backlash over the commercial, her fans came to her defense and acknowledged her talent in perfectly achieving comedy.
Aubrey Plaza’s Wood Milk Commerical!
Back in mid-April this year, the 38-year-old actress, Aubrey Plaza lead a commercial in which she was promoting a fake brand called Wood Milk. Introducing herself as the co-founder of the brand, she mocked the plant-based milk in a satirical way by sharing non-dairy flavors like oak, cherry, maple, and mahogany.
She said in the video,
“If you can’t pick your favorite [flavor], that’s okay, because they all taste like wood.”
It was a connotation that plant-based milk tastes like wood! Towards the end of the video, she faces the camera and said in her deadpan style,
“Is Wood Milk real? Absolutely not. Only real milk is real.”
The commercial was created by the Milk Processor Education Program (MilkPEP), a milk industry marketing organization that ran the iconic ‘Got Milk?’ campaign that ran from the 1990s until 2014.
Soon after the video hit the Internet, vegans strongly criticized the actress for supporting dairy milk. However, her fans came to support her.

Plant-based milk is highly processed which degrades its nutritional value. Many have claimed that its’ complex procedures end up making the product artificial, unlike animal-based foods. Though it is also a fact that dairy production also involves processing before it reaches the consumer so to think one is right while the other is wrong would be a difficult conclusion. The milk war has been going on for years now with one choosing plant-based milk and the other taking a different route.
