As we have opined previously in this trusty blog, Christmas often overshadows fall and winter seasonal marketing efforts for the big box retailers. I suppose small businesses realize that same epiphany, which has to explain this breaking news alert in the world of #AdFail.
For that, we take you to Dothan, Ala. in an industry you didn’t think couldn’t get uglier…it did. Fake bakes.
Enjoy this ad, and the fun story from the greatness of Jezebel.com. As you can tell, the owners of Club Sun Color Studios have figured out an all-too-classy way to market during Thanksgiving.
This from their
cornucopia of bigotry and idiocy…advertisement:
“Have a Colorful Thanksgiving! The Indians brought more than just ‘corn’ to the first Thanksgiving…they brought Sexy ‘Color’!”
You know, if NFL mascots and Portuguese explorers sticking a boot in their behind doesn’t offend Native Americans completely, this should do the trick. Oh look. The ad even comes trollop Pocahontas with fringed stilettos and some Puritan bimbo dressed like Betsy Ross, I suppose.
Nothing says “Thanksgiving” like a pleathered tan, Daniel Boone’s naughty dreams and mimicry of genocide. Pass the turkey, please.
