Gatwick Airport dresses up a jet in scarf, vest, and pink sunglasses to attract gay shoppers.


(click ad) This is, uh, a bit forced. Gatwick airport in southern England wants nearby folk to think of the hub as a great shopping destination. Attitude, the UK's biggest selling gay magazine, happens to have a high readership in the area. So, the hub—via London ad agency Naked Communications—placed this mock fashion ad, featuring a dorky, digitally anthropomorphized jet, in the publication. Those tail-wing boots look just ridiculous (image via). Previously in: Gay Advertising.

This is the worst bit of creative I've seen in a quite a while, even amongst the regular catastrophes that you feature.

Giving new meaning to:

'SHOP UNTIL YOU DROP'

'FLYING THE GAY-FRIENDLY SKIES'

'UP UP AND AWAY IN MY BEAUTIFUL.....'

Also, the plane isn't wearing any pants and the vertical stabilizer totally looks like a big triangular cock.
