Where a good idea becomes a bad cliche.

(click image)
If only. If only the ad really did look like one for a blood drive. Instead, LionsGate just had to put in a hot nurse in stockings. You idiots could have actually given the false impression that this movie is going to be smart as hell. Something tells me this was the usual case of ad by committee. "Search all the parks in all the cities, you'll find no statues of committees..." (I believe it was Donny Deutsch who said that.)

You quoted DD. Now that's scary.

This ad promotes a movie, a blood drive, and a holiday. So does the movie have a hot nurse in it? Or is she just related to the blood drive, or just Halloween. Or both? "Give 'till it hurts." What?

DD didn't say it, though I'm sure he's quoted while presenting to clients.

It sounds like a quote from The Fountainhead.

Copyranter? Are you an objectivist?

If that nurse is a big yawn to you, you are badly in need of a testosterone supplement.

I'd fuck her.

Coincidentally, my girlfriend's H'ween costume last year was a similar oh-so-small get-up in latex, pumps and all. So, in a way, I've ALREADY fucked her.

This is the third year Lionsgate has used "Saw Nurses" to promote their annual blood drive. Also, the Red Cross weren't fans of the sexy nurses posters either:

Don't Cross the Red Cross

FYI, it was David Ogilvy who came up with/first brought to adland the line about there being no statues of committees. Now stop being rude about him.

PS: I don't know nothin' about no nurses, obviously.

It does sound like something David Ogilvy would be accused of saying. :)

But in this case the first use seems to be:

"I've searched all the parks in all the cities and found no statues of committees." -- G. K. Chesterton, 1874-1936, British Author
