Excuse me to anyone who has seen this print ad. It is for V. I have read it more times then I care to admit too and it makes NO SENSE. Please help me understand this;
" Who needs…A physical when you’ve got airport security. Abstinence when you’ve got red hair. To smoke when you’ve got pollution. Stalkers when you’ve got telemarketers. Guinnea pigs when you’ve got G.E food. Sleeping pills when you’ve got talkback. Bribery when you’ve got window washers. Cholesterol when you’ve got the Atkins diet. A guilt trip when you’ve got charity collectors. Germ warfare when you’ve got air conditioning.
Who needs sugar when you’ve got Guarana."
That’s the whole ad, including the lack of question marks. What the fuck is it trying to say? Red heads don’t get sex? Or shouldn’t? You are better to be stalked then have a telemarketer phone you? It is better to take drugs to sleep then listen to people prattle on on the radio? In what way is roadside window washing comparable to bribery? How is a physical comparable to airport security?
Is this ad telling me that guarana is better then sugar or worse?
I hope this ad makes sense to someone or that is one wasted advertising budget!
