lapband

I have been seeing a lot of these LAP BAND billboards popping up around town and I have to say this is by far the STUPIDEST one I have seen.  Attempting to promote the weight loss surgery, they use this billboard as an eff you to dieting.  How wrong does it seem that advertisers are trying to show all the obese people in America that instead of changing your lifestyle and loosing weight the right way, they should just get this surgery and all of their problems will disappear— Yeah right!  The message is confusing, the cause is wrong, and the ad itself is tacky.  You SUCK!



scare the fat out of you.

obesity-is-suicide2Obesity is Suicide ?  Good message… but while strapping sticks of butter to someone might have been a questionable thought for about one second (or less), this ad is ridiculous.  Other ads that went with this campaign might have shown someone jumping off a cliff into a deep valley of cookies, and another with someone hanging themselves with a bucket of red vines.  Sadly the ideas are endless.
