Well, at least the old-ass Hancock ad was just a waste of space. The above ad is either offensive or laughable, depending on your generosity of spirit. It’s not quite as obnoxious as the Mitchum ad I saw a few years ago, but it’s clearly in that same vein, given that it’s meant to hang in above-urinal ad frames.
What makes it funny is what bathroom it was in. I took this picture in the bathroom of Freddie’s, the Arlington gay bar that my darling fiancée accurately describes as looking “like South Beach threw up.” A more appropriate ad would say “Don’t step on that dude’s boa.”
ZoomMedia, the organization credited blamed on the bottom of the frame, has this bit of comedy on their website: “ZOOM MEDIA & MARKETING is the leader in targeted out-of-home solutions efficiently delivering distinct demographic and psychographic niches in consumer lifestyle destination to our advertisers.”
Yes, they bolded targeted and demographic. I do not think those words mean what you think they mean…
