Not OT: dlisted's snark on perfume ad


Recommended Posts

http://dlisted.com/2011/11/09/dakota-fa ... -banned-uk


Briefly: the UK anti-child-porno police decide a Marc Jacobs perfume ad is too provocative, and Michael K suggests a better ad, featuring a photo that must have come from a certain blogger's collection....




Michael K comments: "That is how you do provocative! And full disclosure: I have no idea if that pug's name is Lola, but look at that room. Somebody that lives in that house is named Lola and I have a feeling we're looking at the ho."


I wonder if he'd appreciate it if we gave him honorary Free Jingerian status. Heaven knows he's already earned it a dozen times for his jabs at the Duggar parents.... :lol:

I don't get why they had to have her putting the perfume right THERE.


Other than that, I LOVE the room in the ad with the dog! Slightly over the top, but...I love pink and the vintage style.

annalena, I'm glad to know you like pink and vintage, and don't mean to snark at you for doing so. :) MichaelK's "ad" tickled me because of Lady Lydia and Sherry Rovirosa and others who don't know when or where to stop wtih the pink stuff. I'd enjoy hearing your reactions to their, IMO, overdone homes, some time.

Meanwhile, the juxtaposition of a perfume initially marketed in a skeevy ad, with a satire of the ad set room that would be perfectly fine in the (overdone) homes of at least two very over-the-top dominionist/submissive ladies tickles me .... pink. :lol:

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      Someone please remind me to buy peanut butter. Seriously, I have been meaning to get some for at least three weeks, and everytime I remember, the shops are already closed!

      You know what I hate most about subtle racism? The gaslighting. Stop cosplaying as a nice person and say it with your chest.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
