Maybe they'll have to re-shoot the commercial and there will be some horrible accident.

We can dream, right?

The drawing featuring the reality TV show rivals was put together as part of a brainstorming initiative by JWT India, the agency that produces ad campaigns for Ford Figo in that country.

The ad was never made. It was a concept drawing.

I, for one, am offended the image wasn't of the inflamed car driving off a cliff into the bit of dynamite.

Or, you know, pit of dynamite.

What are you going to do with all that junk? All that junk inside your trunk?

Larry Tate is pissed off.  Darren will make him a martini to apologize.  Endora will stand by wisely and order them all to die in a fire.

I'm so offended I might just go buy a couple of Fords....

THIS.

Ford had NO reason to apologize. They didn't do it, authorize it either. I'd tell them to go pack themselves.

Not only that, a concept from an entirely different company.

Ha it took me a second of wondering why they were sitting in the passenger seat.

False advertising:  All of the Kardashian's junk would not, in fact, fit into that trunk.

It was presumably supposed to be a joke.

Yes, it was supposed to be a joke, no "presumably" neccesary, unless you're mentally retarded... Seriously, get over it.

WAY too many people out there don't understand how their coffee maker works, you expect them to understand how advertising and mock-ups work?

Isn't there a whole show about advertising mock-ups? These pictures were like if Stan Rizzo drew some inappropriate advertising concepts, Peggy Olsen told him to knock it off and get back to work, but Stan went and posted his pictures on the Internet.

You expect people to pay enough attention to their favorite shows to see how they apply to the real world? They just tune in for the jokes and the rest of the dialogue. Any connection to reality is purely coincidental.

My agency submitted an RFP to a hotel chain, and as part of it I had to make a flash game where you tickle Sarah Silverman into submission on a bed while she talks dirty to you.

Still my weirdest assignment to date.

For some reason it reminds me of the inside cover art to Appetite for Destruction.
