    I mean, Come on! At least make it look like your putting the girl in for some relevance...don't just stick her in on the side because you NEED to get everyone's attention!

    Hey! How about this? Put out a good product and you'll get attention!!!!!

    Hmmmm?????......

    Your surprised Mark? Sex sells more then anything else and most companies have used sex to sell in one varying form or another.

    This is an ad for a bike etailer.. but they've had a bunch of ads at Velonews (A cycling newspaper) which has gotten a bunch of hatemail in the letter's editorial section that have been entertaining to read...

    Got my attention.. [​IMG]

    And not only are they using a pretty girl for no apparent reason, they are selling this "descrambler" implying that you'll be able to "legally steal" cable programming too (at least that's the impression I get from the ads and their page: Link Deleted ). Of course it's legal, it's a regular frickin' cable box. [​IMG]

    Great ad campaign. [​IMG]

    (Admin note - this is getting too close to providing details for cable theft)

    Show me something that is marketed without sex... There was a study done about all the subliminal sexual innuendo in just about all advertising.

    (except maybe the Dave Thomas Wendy commercials)

    Isn't it interesting that it's legal in the U.S. to "sell everything with sex" EXCEPT FOR ACTUAL SEX*?

    Yeah, an ad without sex is like an ocean without salt water.
