Poor taste puns

Respect for women and 'no means no' are values that should be instilled in every young man.

Obviously they are not.

Which is problematic in and of itself.

But this poster I saw the other day is also problematic. At least it is for me?

Seriously who on earth thought a dick made from a thermometer was a good idea?

Not to mention the appallingly punny 'Don't Blow it' headline.

In fact this ad is so wrong, in so many ways, I'm struggling to figure out how it ever got approved.

Approved by the client. And approved for presentation by a Creative Director.

Perhaps they were trying to do something edgy.

Instead it's just punny bad taste...
