life explained in pictures

They do say that a picture is worth a thousand words, don't they?

The topic is: Sex and advertising (aka using a woman's boobs to sell something...)



Are we really surprised and outraged? There's a simple reason why a woman's cleavage is naturally associated with promoting a beverage:




Of course, I? Prefer clever ads...

Awesome!

Cleavage rocks!

I am actually sporting a whole lot of the boobage right now... in sweet anticipation of seeing the Maifan-San this afternoon :)

Travis Erwin said...

Boobs, beer, and belly laughs. This may be the perfect post.

Avitable said...

That was a very clever commercial. Titillating ads always bore me.

Anndi said...

Kay, the Maifan-San is a lucky man.. and it's about so much more than the cleavage. Have a great weekend, girlie! SMOOCH

Travis Erwin, awwww shucks.

Avitable, clever commercial for a supreme beverage.

Desert Songbird said...

Very clever, commercial, and OF COURSE it's for Guinness. *grin*

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

SUPREME beverage alright..is it 5pm yet?

Anndi said...

Songbird, Guinness is nomnomnomnomnomnomnom!

Gary, it's 5 o'clock somewhere! I have a cold Guinness waiting for me in the fridge *licks lips*.

America's 1st Sgt. said...

Ack! Guinness in a bottle. Yuck! Guinness is properly enjoyed in a pint drawn from the tap.

Sadly, I fly out tonight to a land lacking both Guinness and cleavage.

Anndi said...

Dollface, I'll meet you in a proper pub (wait, does that exist?) assuming you watch your ass (and everything else) over in the Sandbox and we'll have a proper pint or two.

SMOOCH xoxo

Turnbaby said...

Sold me ;-)

Anndi said...

Turnbaby, I expected no less *grin*

MilesPerHour said...

Great post for a Friday! Actually I think I'm gonna come back again on Monday!

frankie bondo said...

frankie, one does one's best.

Ron said...

Bee (the one who muses) said...

I went to the liquor store to buy some chips and now I wish I would have bought some beer too. mmmmmmmm beeeeeeeer

coopernicus said...

Sorry...had to go get a Nestea...what were you saying???

Jeff B said...

You had me at boobs...

Brian o vretanos said...

You've got me thinking now... if they ever genetically modify a woman to provide coke instead of milk they'll have to lower her body temperature considerably.

The Guinness ads are justly famous.

Akelamalu said...

The Guinness add is very clever. Bosoms appeal to men which is why they use them!

Travis said...

Well, I've watched plenty of ads because of the boobage. But I can't say as I've ever bought something because the boobage made me do it.

And why don't I have any Guinness in my fridge right now?

Charles Gramlich said...

Yes, that is at least one of the best beer commercials ever. Love the poster as well.

Mimi Lenox said...

I spent the entire time waiting for the breasts to appear and all I got were lizards.
I'm going to bed now.

Anndi said...

Ron, *beams with pride and grins* Thanks buddy!

Bee, you walked out sans alcohol? What?!

Brian, nothing as bad as tepid coke...

Akelamalu, nature has given us quite the weapon... we must use the girls wisely.

Travis, I didn't take it *wipes Guinness mustache*

Charles, I thought it quite clever indeed.

Mimi, knowing me I'm surprised you weren't expecting shoes.
