wow. wow. wow. where did hanes get the heart to do this!? and what is the ad agency behind this? (jaywilonbelieves.blogspot.com)worldwide - blaynistas, i am buzzing right now over these new ads. it's not anger at all, but just excitement that something this fresh, raw, on point, political, controversial exists - and are you ready for the head crack? - it is from hanes! (hanes of the mellow, laid back, feel good commercials.) furthermore, i am wondering if an ad like this would actually make it in the united states? sadly, i don't think so. i am been researching online and it looks like it is already getting heat from countries like the u.k and india where it is featured. but i digress...i am talking about hanes' new "faggot, paki, nigger" ads for it's "tagless underwear." the tagline being...."because the world gives you enoug labels." as you can see from the illustration, it features a person from each respective "race," dragging around images that correspond to the slurs. this shizz is so raw and real! ofcourse they could have done the lame cheerleader, ditzy blond, dumb joke stereotypes that people are more comfortable with. but outside of a sitcom, what are the labels that are truly hurled!? the ones they mention in the ads. as for me? i love it! i think its advertising at its best. what do you guys think!? tell me! tell me now! i can't be the only one tingling over these ads!!!
