Way back when this blog was in it’s embryonic stage, we showed you how bad design can turn a multi-million dollar branding project, into the butt of everyones jokes (literally), with the easy conversion of Microsoft’s Zune logo into anuz, complete with the mildly manipulated sphincter symbol.
If you’re like me, you may have found yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time, because we would never, ever do anything remotely illegal. Unfortunately, the Man doesn’t always believe us innocent folk and we get locked up for something that was clearly done by a one armed man. Thankfully Canada (damn RCMP) offers www.pardonsdirect.com to clear our innocent butts! Next time you find yourself up in the great white north and being locked up for unlicensed trout fishing, call them up and get some help. ay!
I recently read an interview with Vans Warped Tour star Katy Perry, that well got me thinking. In the interview Katy was asked the cliche question “who would you kiss” on Warped Tour, in reference to her “I Kissed a Girl” tune. Ms. Perry’s answer, Paige Wood (my answer, both)! I will refrain from making the jokes about the thought of that sending blood to any part of my body, but rather I will say that I think Katy Perry should do a remix of the song and feature Paige Wood on the track. If the two choose to test the waters of temptation in the video, so be it, I will be screaming like the crowds at Warped Tour “I Love Wood”!
After reading my post on the MTA’s support of subway groping, they have decided to change positions and go ahead with the ad campaign to make women (and men) aware of the problem of feel coping throughout the system. Everyone is aware that this goes on, but most don’t bother to say or report anything about the incidents. After feeling pressure from this blog (and probably a few other organizations, like the NYPD and ACLU) the MTA is now going to run the ad campaign, to explain to people that this is wrong and how to report it when it goes on. You’re welcome, but really there is no need to thank me.
In all seriousness, I hope the MTA is planning on adding more trains and increasing service to some how make it possible not to be shoe horned into a train, thus forcing incidental, but still unwanted touching. I know I don’t want anyone on the subway touching me for any reason (well except this one girl on the L this morning, holy damnation), but I don’t want to see everyone on the train getting arrested or harassed for unavoidable contact.
And one more thing, is it just me, or does the women in the ad photo above, appear to be more disgusted by the closeness of the man in front of her, or the apparent odor being emitted from his underarms?
Guinness is denying that they have anything to do with this video, just like Heineken did with their infamous YouTube blow job clip, but that’s not what my problem with this ad is. My problem is that Guinness in a bottle SUCKS! I love Guinness, with its high in iron, antioxidant, meal in a glass, make me forget my troubles, cause me to get in trouble, goodness, but only a straight from the keg pint will do!
