Dirty car

I get the point -- that this is a MiniCooper unlike the other models -- but why any advertising manager would want to imply their car is a bastard is beyond me.

What's doubly curious about this recent ad that appeared on the back cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly is how -- with the same background black and use of silver -- it almost seems to be intended as one big spread, an odd juxtapostion of the innuendo-laden headline with the cover blurb mentioning singer Usher's "wild past."

NOTE: Maybe you've noticed the new title for my blog. I've been trying to come up with something that better encompasses the type of postings I specialize in, and this seems pretty good to me. Same web address, though -- no need to change bookmarks (you have bookmarked this site, right?).
