Orbit ad makes ridiculously tasteless visual melon joke.
(click ad for closer look)
Last week, we had Big Tits Friday. I guess this is mini melons Tuesday.
If you were a small-brained creative tasked with coming up with a print ad for new Orbit Maui Melon Mints, this would be your thought process.
...Well it's got to look Hawaiian/tropical. What else? Melon...Melon equals tit, sooo BIG TITTED HULA DANCER with a packet of Orbit stuck between her melons! You chew on tits AND you chew on mints! Wait...the ad's being placed in women-friendly mags, so...the dancer will have to have small tits...and we'll use TWO product shots that cover up her mini melons...and...we won't make her too hot...and we'll put a stupid expression on her face...
Give or take, that's probably close to how it went down. Which leaves us with one question: why the hell did Orbit buy this ad? This Orbit gum ad out of the Czech Republic is bad, but not this bad. related: the altoids ads thread.
