NO question. This is SAD. But you see much worse in India.
When I related the BEST EVER Monica Lewinsky joke I told you that there was a time when I used to be a clearing house for distributing Bill Clinton jokes.
I hope you all remember the priceless Mastercard Priceless commercials. Well, I like so many other (and here is one quick example), also collected take-offs on the Priceless theme. I was lucky. I had folks send me great examples from around the world — and I would, per the charter, redistribute them. That was quite a campaign too. Also did a campaign on takeoff Altoid ads once it was discovered that sucking Altoids can enhance the whole oral sex experience! You knew that … right? I even engineered an elaborate prank based on this premise at a Trade Show where the unsuspecting butt of this insider joke were a bunch of folks I knew who were working the booth for a very famous networking company. It took at least 40 minutes before they cottoned on that something was up. It was all good ‘clean’ fun.
Anyway this, I am sure, was my FAVORITE ‘priceless’ ad (in its original undoctored form). It says, on the picture that it first appeared on ‘watchersweb.com‘. [Do NOT visit that Website UNLESS you want to be shocked. Not for the faint of heart.]
