It’s nice to see that Obama is willing to call them what they are, liars.
They must have rappelled over the side to write this, or maybe it was written from behind the ad.
Update. I was interviewed by a reporter from ABC News on Thursday:
"It’s kind of shocking," said Michael Natale, who edits a blog that writes about the East Village in New York City, where this particular ad was located. "But it still doesn’t offend me."
Other posters felt differently, writing that the ads prompt them to "shy away" from the brand."
Sex May Sell, but Some Say Ads Go too Far
I really don’t remember saying exactly that to her. I did say that I do enjoy seeing young women in ads but that this one was particularly pornographic. And that I was more interested in the fact that people are talking back to ads than what this particular person had to say. And she could have thrown the name of my blog in there, damn it.
I guess I’m just falling into whatever marketing campaign this is, but I’m a sucker for craft and sweet line. There is no doubt of the skill of Tats Cru. But so far they all turn out to be ads of one sort or another. Even that great surveillance mural had some tie in with some stupid celebrity reality show. At least it’s not for Hummers this time.

Copyrighted Graffiti – Photo Book Pulled
Privacy might seem like an odd desire for these professional graffiti muralists whose works adorn everything from bodegas and medical vans to playgrounds and public schools. But they have been serious about controlling their work ever since a number of their aerosol tableaus were photographed â€” without their permission â€” for a book and an exhibit on the murals of New York City.
Tats Cru and a dozen other similarly aggrieved artists have joined to seek a settlement from Peter Rosenstein, a photographer who spent more than a decade shooting pictures of their work and included the photos in his book, â€œTattooed Walls.â€ As a result of the artistsâ€™ complaints, the University Press of Mississippi, the publisher, removed the book from its catalog a month after its release last year. – NY Times

Models – Gorgious Fashion Revue, the Israel Orphan Asylum and an Italian candidate for mayor in Madison Square Garden. What does it all mean?
These posters were preserved beneath some planking, and then further preserved with transparent medium by the staff at the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

What do multinational corporations do once their dirty record gets around and people start seeing them for what they are?
They change their names, of course.
