What this ad is really saying…

*sigh* it never ends

hellooooo, she\'s not even sleeping on the mattress. *tsk*

helloooo, she’s not even sleeping ON the mattress. *tsk* and it’s also nice how the ad is implying some sort of “exoticism” with a questionably latino/african-american man and his Caucasian, long-haired brunette woman.

You can’t see it but it says things like “Give me: Beer, Food, Sex” and “Stop: Nagging, Moaning, Whining”

Commentary: Honey, it’s going to take a lot more than a piece of plastic with some batteries to control me. Or…wait…maybe not…*scandalous!*

While googling this gadget I did find that there is one for men that is equally offensive. Interestingly this version was not stocked in this particular store. Ahhhhh marketing demographics.

What this ad is really saying: Episode 2 (“Sex Sells….Beanbags!”)

You know, traveling without the internet really forces you to go back to those “older” mediums, like print. I had a nice stash o’ magazines with me on my travels and that provided an awful lot of fodder for this recurring series.

These two ads appeared separately in the classified section of Wired magazine. One on each side of the page.

Here’s what they say to me:

Dudes: Do you like chilling out comfortably on some plushy bean-filled furniture? Then this is the deal for you! Kick back, relax, plug in that Xbox and settle in for an evening of total veg out fun. Wasssup!

Dudettes: Do you like straddling beanbag furniture? Love to give your best “come-hither” look no matter where you are? Wouldn’t messing around on a bean bag just be like, so way cool?!?! You know you weren’t even thinking about chillaxing on this baby, no no no, it’s all how sexay you can look on a pile of styrofoam beans and fake suede. Rrrarrrr baby!
