Advertising is the Devil’s Game, Like For Reals

We’ve been reading Steffan Postaer‘s book “The Happy Soul Industry” which tells the tale of an angel whose mission is to find an ad agency for Heaven and spread a message of goodness. We’re not there yet but we presume the devil will come into play somehow &#151 and with that we take you to a story out of Detroit where the MGM Grand Casino has a new billboard created by Globalhue. On it is a close shot of a woman’s eyes, and she’s got that whole night-eyes, lady of the evening thing going on. She’ll suck you right in, like a tractor beam. And to make matters more devilish, she’s got eerily blue skin and gold eyes. Apparently her presence is bothering some locals. Watch the video. Would she bother you?
