So recently I saw this poster …
Yes, I know this poster is appearing in China – a land that has an almost indecent fascination with Panda’s – but come on, what the fuck were they thinking?
In all honesty, when I first saw it, I thought it was about domestic violence.
And what the hell is with that ‘custom blending is now completed’ rubbish.
It’s about as subtle as a 14 year old kid with an erection while wearing lycra shorts.
Now I know I have all the fashion sense of a pig.
I know I’m about as current as a bowl of trifle.
But the people behind it need to know something.
It doesn’t matter care how artsy you’ve tried to make this poster look … if you go out with this make up on, you will get you laughed at, not fawned over – even in a country that thinks walking backwards and dressing like this is perfectly normal.
Look, I know you work in an industry that seems to revel in the ridiculous, but please stop with the pretentious bullshit … you’re not fooling anyone and you’re just embarrassing yourselves, not to mention the idiots who are so desperate for attention, they think this is cool.
God, I feel so much better now. Thank you.
