Oh my, this one has got to be one of the grossest commercials I have ever seen! The DC Lottery has been showing a new ad. It starts out nicely enough, a well dressed young woman steps out of a building and walks down the steps to the sidewalk … where she promptly steps into a pile of dog poop! She is wearing some strippy sandals too, mind you, so yes, there is contact between foot and poo (yech!). As if that’s not bad enough, the woman looks down and then begins to retch!!
Who in their -right- mind would think that this would be a good commercial to make for the DC Lottery?! Um, no… and no! I made it about 3/4 of the way through the ad once. Each time it’s come on again, I have switched the channel. I cannot be the only one to find this extremely offensive.
I think since it’s for the DC Lottery, that it is probably specific to stations in the Washington DC area, so I guess those of you around the country can be thankful for that at least. I mean honestly, this ad is so very gross. I can even see it appealing to young kids, which is the only group I can think of who might get a “kick” out of seeing someone step in a pile of dog poo!
