On my way to the bank during my lunch break, I glanced at an ad on the side of a bus stop. I continued walking and stopped at the crosswalk, waiting for the little white man to appear and tell me to continue my locomotion to the next corner.
Just before the cross-traffic light turned red and the light I was waiting for turned green, the words that I had read finally processed. Here is the ad:
Their tagline is “Turn an Exit Into an Entrance.” I’ve never heard of this champagne (Matt tells me it’s a status icon, which explains why I never heard of it), but if it’s going to make some Paris HIlton upstart want to have anal sex with me, I’m buying. Well done ad campaign. I doubt they meant this to be explicit – or maybe my prudish 1982 sensibilities are out of date – but I can’t imagine that someone down the line didn’t realize the double entendre.
If anyone else has a ridiculous ad they’d like to share or post, email me or leave it in the comments of this post.
