Kenneth Cole owns AIDS.


Evidently, because of his involvement with the AIDS cause, junior copywriter Kenny Cole thinks it is now his inexorable right to profit off of the disease by slapping disease-y punlines on all of his product ads. FYI: I didn't crop off any copy from the ad; the headline and Kenny's signature are the only words on the page. Also, nice touch Ken using blotchy bloody type (click image). Subtle!

previously in Kenny Cole ads:
1. Cole loses yet another battle in war on words.
2. Cole's puns are re-hyphen-tarded.

He's picked a model that looks suspiciously like Kate Moss, that icon of heroin chic along with her worthless other half Pete Doherty.
As any fule kno, taking drugs and sharing needles is dead cool and its likely consequence AIDS is the disease of choice for medianistas who want to display a social conscience by supporting good causes.
Seems like this ad is bang on the money.
Someone should plant some packets on this guy so he gets busted and has to take some soapy man-love in the prison showers. Then he can be a carrier too.
