This is the visual from an ad for:

  1. The American Express Platinum Card.
  2. Platinum, The Movie, based on the Gotham crime-fighting comic book hero with a heart of gold.
  3. A Chelsea gym.
  4. Yet another overstated, overhyped overpromising overpriced condo tower (this one in Times Square) beckoning pump-monkey, bump-snorting Wall Street douchebags.
(scanned from the March Bloomberg Markets)
previously in NYC real estate
:
1. Jonathan Swift Realty, Inc.
2. Real Estate Stooges Redefine "Shocking"
3. CLEARLY defining your target audience.

Stupidest thing I ever saw. Am I supposed to assume that hardbodied, sweaty people will be living there too? (and that I might (hopefully) bump into one as well?)

On second thoughts, it's a shiny man trying to give himself a blow job. And getting himself steamed up.

It's residence for the kind of people who like unspeakably horrific Flash websites.

This is going to be a hive for douchy, striped shirt wearing, Jaeger bomb drinking finance types that high five one another and lease Escalades, and have no appreciation for design or function whatsoever.

I propose a renaming of this building to "Dickburg towers".
