Wine ad fail

Posted by Lissa on June 1, 2009

Look, y’all.  Isn’t this a beautiful advertisement?  Doesn’t it make you want to visit France and drink French wine?  (I admit I improved it a bit.)

Edited ad

Now look at the original:

ACK!  Who decided this smarmy, sketchy-eyed poofster would make a customer MORE likely to drink French wine? 

(h/t to Mike, who took one look and decided we’d be buying Shiraz for a while . . . )

    Can’t tell if he’s a poofster. He’s french, and just looks that way. Like Sarkozy, who’s married to a woman who – if she were an American president – would be called Baberaham Lincoln.

    Well, he is, and she would.

    That guy reminds me of the dude who played the salesman in Isuzu’s “Salesman Liar” ad campaign, many many moons ago.

    The guy’s picture reminds me of Steve Guttenburg opening the film Police Academy with “Wig! Wig!”
