While getting some last minute things at the grocery store, I saw this week’s issue of People magazine for sale. The cover features a montage of all the little children and the teachers killed in the Newtown massacre. Frankly I was grossed out by it. Leave these people alone. Stop trying to make either sales or political capital from this horror. The magazines and the networks can cry “nation in mourning” all they want. It’s BS. They’re using it to make a buck and to push their agendas. And that’s disgusting.
So in a small fit of pique I turned the top issue around in the rack. Let everybody look at the back cover instead.
And I damn near had a heart attack.
‘Tis the season for perfume ads, and they’re always over the top. But this one is just so far ... beyond ... it leaves the others in the dust. I’m no prude, but in my opinion this is nearly pornographic. Every picture tells a story, and this one says Mr. Hunky just got done screwing young Blondie stupid, and now he’s ready for you. Either that, or he’ll be back on her the moment you look away. Hot? Not? Scary? Not sure how I’m reacting, but I almost feel like an intruder. Oh, and of course the symbolism in the background, just in case we couldn’t pick up on the overtly sexual message. Little Miss Mons and her almost-toe, nearly flashing her smoothie as she tries to catch her breath. Uh huh. Yeah, I’d spend $90 for 3 and a half ounces of that. Sure I would.
It isn’t even a new picture. David Gandy (Mr. Hunky) and Anna Jagodzinska (Smoothie screwed stupid) did the photos back in 2010.
But ... damn. DAMN!!
What ads did you see this season that were just ... beyond blatant? Is that hot, or not? Is it necessary, to cut through the sexual clutter that’s out there these days? And if it is necessary, what comes next?
Eh, what’s that you say? More David Gandy? Sure thing. Coming right up!
There, that ought to make up for a couple of dozen babe posts. Never say I completely ignore the ladies.
What, more? Ok. Fine. Here’s ALL of him. And I mean ALL. Well, 99.875%. NSFW.
That ought to put some candy in your Christmas stockings!
Your welcome W-MAMA. Hey, we all know sex sells so , Ah, screw this, Merry Xmas assholes, Bring on the Eggnog.
Again, too much alkyhole for my constitution to handle.
Happy thoughts people.
You think that the print ad is bad - watch the tv ones - yikes!
And I love Dolce & Gabbana.
