I wish I could enlarge it further but it was a screen shot I took of a sidebar pop-up ad from the ninemsn website. So many questions are swimming around my mind:
- Why the socks and slides?
- Do the slides belong to the man in the ad? If so, then why a size too big?
- Has this man ever been to the beach before? A man who's been to the beach would know how inappropriate such footwear attire would be.
- More to the point though, who would find a man, that wears socks and slides (and to the beach for that matter) attractive enough to want to procreate with him in the first place to require a family car?
- And finally, is Volkswagen tightening their advertising spend because clearly from this advert, they've been outsourcing their advertising campaigns to Odesk!
This ad stinks!
