Pepsi drop massive clanger thanks to dreadful choice of ‘RAPE’ typeface

PEPSI and Coca Cola are always at war, and Coke must be laughing their asses off this week as their blue-canned pals made a horrendous error with one of their marketing campaigns.

Thanks to a dismal choice of typeface, Pepsi’s ‘Aape’ campaign looked more like they were siding themselves with sexual assault.

Cheerios advert brings out the racists

cheerio racist

BIZARRELY, in 2013, there are people who still define other humans by the colour of their skin. All white people are ruthless and can’t dance, all black people are criminals, all yellow people are karate experts and all brown people want to blow up planes. Apart from the white people who are poor and live in Russia, the black people who are pillars of society, the yellow people who would like to point out they’re not actually yellow and the brown people who are generally lumped together because they don’t fit in the other categories.

And everyone forgot about the Native and South Americans.

Banning The Periodic Vagina In Richard Adams’ River City And Tampon Adverts

THE Guardian’s Richard Adams ended up defending himself from sexist accusations by his readers when he dared to dip his quill into the subject of feminine hygiene. He has a delightful blog pointing out the V-word is banned in US tampon ads.

There can be no direct naming of the vagina. No front bottom, minge, birth canal, pussy, beaver, Venus trouser trap, burning ring of fire, or the all-time classic ‘blossom full of nectar’. There are a few other descriptive nouns …but modesty forbids.

There was a hint of troubles in Richard’s personal River City, but he got the desired result – a great response.

Poker Is Not A Sport Of Courage, Conviction And Confidence

ACCORDING to the Poker Stars advert poker “is a sport of courage, conviction and confidence.”

Yeah, poker is a sport. Who knew that those slobs sat round a table counting bits of plastic were sportsmen?

The Advertising Standards Authority sees the ad and begs to differ.

The ASA tells the poker operator to take the posters down, leaving us to wonder which bit of their claim was the most ludicrous?
