Perplexing Internet Ad
I’ve noticed lately an uptick of incredibly perplexing internet ads. The latest involve the statement “Obama Asks Moms to Return to School.” An example:
In case you can’t tell, it’s a woman doing crunches. What does this have to do with Obama asking Moms to return to school? Your guess is as good as mine. Perhaps he wants Moms to stop being so self-conscious about their weight and start being self-conscious about their careers. Or perhaps he doesn’t just want them to continue their education, but start all over again – INCLUDING physical education.
At least it makes more sense than the other confusing and possibly racist ad I’ve seen (but thus far have been unsuccessful in tracking down again) for the same service that shows a picture of a random black dude in a suit. Because, you know, Obama’s a black guy in a suit…?
