If it hasn't already happened, today can go down in the record books as the day subtlety died. Burger King's latest advertisement -- for its, ahem, BK Super Seven Incher -- leaves little to imagination or interpretation.
As you can see here, the woman in said advertisement is about to (edit phrase) on a Super Seven Incher with a suggestive tagline that uses the word "blow." Mmhmm, I think it's safe to assume that such humor will only be going over the head of those younger than, oh, about 13 years old. (Sorry, parents!)
The "copy" at the bottom of the ad -- not sure that you can even seen it here -- takes the whole thing even further: "Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled with the NEW BK SUPER SEVEN INCHER," it says. "Yearn for more.”
"Something long, juicy"? "Yearn for more"? "Mind-blowing"? I think it's all rather glorious, in an I-love-trash kind of way. Who ever cared about cunning, cleverness, and nuance anyway? Blow your mind (and this Super Seven Incher) instead!
Are you even batting an eye at BK's latest, sexually charged ad campaign?
Of course, peta or some crazy group out there will protest it, because a advert suggest something is more important then the trillions of dollars the white house wasted.
I work on websites for a living. I can do a page that has tons of information, is designed nice and neat and so forth, and as far as generating cash it doesn't make much money. On the flip side, I can have some guy make some stupid site in dreamweaver that is ugly, not much information and so forth - a site that I would close my browser on, and it performs like hot cakes. Go figure.
