double oops



This is a full-page ad promoting my former beige. It was published on the back cover of a fancy, oversized industry magazine a few months back, right after they won a big, huge account... the biggest possible account really, okay it was WalMart. Right after it was published, they disowned the ad, saying that they didn't know how it got printed...? which is kind of a big thing to not be aware of i am thinking. So then what happened is that they lost the account, because it came out that the 2 people who clinched the deal were messing around with each other. Private emails were released to the public, it was all very embarrassing, & heads b. rolling...

all the rest of it woudn't be as interesting to me if it wasn't for that AD, which i find appalling.

that is a rather scandalous story, sloth.

whoever approved that ad, well, they seem to have questionable taste.

yeah krix, it makes me kind of nostalgic for the days when they just airbrushed the word 'sex' into icecube highlights...
