...and some things are not.

(click ad for closer look)
That's Anthony Bourdain in one of a series of ads placed in trade rags like Broadcasting & Cable promoting Travel Channel's HD programming. previous things you'd rather not see: topographical zombie Bono; an abacus in a brokerage ad; 10-year-old girls with D-cups; bestiality. (thanks to Jim Petrosky for the image)
update: Bourdain also dislikes the ad.

thanks, and just to clarify: my beef is with the forced, doesn't-work concept of the ad, not Mr. Bourdain.

Ooooh, a huge solid blue expanse. Now I need HD for that.

Yeah, the ad sucks.

Tony, however, is great (other than the fact that my GF is in love with him).

She'd do him.

Don't worry, CR. Anthony feels exactly the same way.

I love Bourdain, but he looks like a toad there.

Tony is just about the SEXIEST thing around. I have no problem with seeing him naked in HD.

The ad, however, is lame.

That scene would look better in black and white.

Hahaha just look at Bourdain's photo from the book "My Last Supper":
