A Huffington Post link? What is it?

Who gets upset over this sort of thing?  Do people really find this offensive?  I hate you all.

This is truth in advertising at its best.  Every last one of those people IS going to die.

What else would you expect from something filled with energetic dinks?

I read that as in flight meat.

Nine times out of ten it's an electric razor, but every once in a while, it's a dildo. Of course it's company policy never to, imply ownership in the event of a dildo... always use the indefinite article a dildo, never your dildo.

It's really not important right now or ever for that matter.

It's a puff piece of no real value. But that's not important right now.

Another thing not to say would be "Does anyone know how to fly a plane?"
 
2013-05-06 06:06:12 PM
Hey Ron! Yah it's yours cousin Martin, yah I know a long time. Listen so we made this ad. It's this kind of you know "there is no bad publicity" thing... yah well the thing is. It's actually just a stupid ad and it hasn't really generated any buzz. So I was thinking... you work at that paper over there... and maybe you could... say for a box of Zenonade write an article about it. Be careful NOT to make it look like a desperate attempt to create a controversy though...

Just another millennial douchebag CD at some third rate agency desperately trying to be outrageous.

Nothing to see here.
 
2013-05-06 06:13:14 PM
I think this is a clever ploy to attract the millions of people that have that fear of one day dying alone.
 
2013-05-06 06:15:02 PM
Huh.  So it was a United flight, then?

Did HuffPo just run an advertisement for some sort of anti-Red Bull? I'm not sure why Fark had to join in.

Meh, better than the usual airline ads that are so steeped in symbolism and metaphor that they are as ridiculous as Homer's Mr. Plow commercial.

That. Apart from the UK, they seem a lot more laid back. And common sense, they has it.

OTOH, we have a really nice standard of living over here. We almost moved to Europe about a year ago but my wife reluctantly veto'ed the idea. I was a little angry about it but after some reflection I've decided that while it's an amazing place to visit we have an extremely comfortable life in WA that I would miss.

As I pointed out to a friend yesterday (when that obnoxious "I would do anything for love" M&Ms commercial was playing), some ad agency got paid BIG bucks for something that awful. And pretty much every commercial you see on TV means someone got paid for that concept, no matter how awful it is.

I admit, I just don't get it. Forget about whether or not it's in poor taste, I don't understand the plot.

"I'm going to be the first to leave this plane". What does that mean?

Somehow, everyone on the plane is going to die, but she's going to leave alive. My little brain can't figure it out.

Can anyone explain it to me?

Fly at your own risk. Drink Zenonade at your own risk.

Oooooh, that's right, Zenonade is dangerous and edgy.

/best I can figure out.
 
2013-05-06 07:00:14 PM
It'd be nice if we, as a society, could agree that not everything about flying has to be fraught with terror and fear.

Don't joke about death while actually on an airplane?  Sure.  That seems reasonable.

No joking about death and airplanes at the same time?  Screw that.

TFA says that the CEO of the ad agency said that there hasn't been any controversy so far.  Unnecessary article is unnecessary.

I don't agree. I want everything about flying to be fraught with terror, fear, and nice red uniforms.

Being laid back and commonsensical is why they can't have nice things.

That's one thing I loved about the trailers for Iron Man 3... The big hole in Air Force One with all the people sucked out of the plane without parachutes. The scene was well-done and probably struck terror in the hearts of people who are afraid of flying. And the beauty of it was that you didn't have to see the movie to see this scene.

Heh heh. I wonder if that movie will ever be shown on a flight...
