Your Ad Is Gross

posted by Noah at 4:32 PM
Dear Social Media PR Person,
Per your request I am featuring the image you sent me on my blog. However:
A. Do not send me a press release for an ad that doesn't have to do with the subject of my blog.
B. Do not send me ads that feature a girl under the age of 18 in an overtly sexual pose. I do not care whose daughter she is.
C. If you do A and/or B, expect me to point out how disgusting it is.

[UPDATE] If you want to know more about this campaign, Agency Spy does a nice job telling the rest of the story HERE.

It is absolutely ridiculous that this was sent to your blog. That said, this sadly looks like just another ad to me. I have become immune to this form of advertising. Case in point; I had a stack of NYLON magazines laying around when my 63 year-old father happened to be visiting. One evening, out of the blue, he told me how disgusting "those" magazines were their models in no clothes and all that sex. I laughed it off until a couple of days later when I sat down and really LOOKED at one. He was right and I have just become blind to it.

Cheers for your great response. The industry keeps getting away with this kind of crap because consumers continue to let them.

We so need to stand up for our teenage girls in particular and say 'nah that shit really aint cool'
