I just saw this ad on the Huffington Post: (Yes, I was reading the article about the cancellation of “My Own Worst Enemy” a.k.a. “The show that makes me want to turn off the TV the second “Heroes” is over”)
But what I want to talk about is what the hell is going on with this ad? First, both those pictures look like the ones local news stations surreptitiously take of bodies without heads whenever they do news stories about Obesity In America.
Second, who is going to look at that “After” picture and go, “oh yes, that is the body I want, I’m sure it looks much more fab without the horizontal stripes.”
And third, and THIRD, she started out as a BLACK WOMAN and ended up as a WHITE WOMAN!!! What kind of crazy Michael Jackson dieting program is this?
