Sex doesn't always sell
« on: December 16, 2009, 09:51:14 am »

This one speaks for itself...

**
Walking into work and having someone immediately critique your appearance, or worse if you're a woman, your bust line, is reason enough to seek out a sexual harassment lawyer. So why, then, would Kraft put a Shake 'N Bake ad in its lobby consisting of a mirror with copy underneath reading, "You look smashing. But your chicken breasts could use a lift"?

For obvious reasons, workers at Kraft are not amused. Pointing out to a woman that her breasts are losing their war with gravity is not a good way to cultivate customer good will (or a healthy workplace environment).

I am struck dumb (ok, not literally ) that someone could be so stupid.

The execs were sitting around brainstorming great marketing ideas while sipping a few drinks.  They obviously came up with a winner.

They couldn't imagine anyone taking offense. After all, it was clever as heck when they first thought of it. It helps, of course, to be 'the ideal man' when postulating on the ideal woman.
