Would you buy shoes from these people?

I have to wonder what the geniuses with Ogilvy Advertising were thinking when they green lighted this ad for Exit Urban Shoes.

“Say, that Michael Vick thing sure did seem to get a lot press. Let’s see if we can get in on that!”

Here’s the ad they came up with to sell shoes.

Abusive Advertising

Yup, shoes. Do you see any correlation between this horrific, abusive, highly disturbing ad and foot wear?


Me either.

If you find it as disturbing as I do, write and tell them how you feel ::
