a couple more pre-9/11 ads with WTC visuals.


(click ads for closer look)
As a followup to yesterday's post about eerie pre-9/11 ads with the World Trade Center towers as the visual, here's a couple more to add to the scary gallery. First (L), It's an ad out of Israel for Elite candy bars promoting a contest where the winner jets off to NYC aboard a Tower Air plane aiming to slam into one of the sugary twins. (thanks to Leo Keil for that pic and info). Second (R), it's a pic of a framed (and signed for some reason) Maker's Mark bourbon ad or promo piece of some sort featuring their trademark melted red wax dripping like blood down the upper floors of the monoliths (pic found here, thanks anon commenter). update: here's another one featuring Cookie Monster from Sesame Street. UPDATE: please go to Polls Boutique (link) to vote for the most foreboding World Trade Center image.

I think we could forgive Cookie Monster. He can't control himself. And, we really shouldn't have made the Twin Towers chocolate chip.

right. if we start to blame the monster puppets and restrict their need to eat cookie-constructed towers or live in trash cans, then the terrorists will have won.

C is for cookie - that's good enough for me.
