Bad Ad

I was at a friend’s house last night, and while bouncing around IMDB, The following banner ad popped up on one of the pages:

An Internet banner ad for a hotel chain.  A woman on a bed looking up.  A man's feet dangling in frame from above

All I can really say about this ad is that the advertiser clearly meant to send one image, but his intent went horribly, horribly wrong. I mean… am I the only person seeing an image of a woman looking on bemusedly as her husband has just hanged himself?

“Oh that Bob… always doing outrageous stuff.”

Or even more cynical:

“Well at least he could do something right.”

Wait… What’s that? You think I’m imagining things? Okay, fine. Look at it again with one small change:

Same ad as before, but the feet are gently swinging side to side

Told ya so.
