"Ugly" girl mocked by Israeli optician's Facebook ad.

(click ad, via) Just the worst sort of lazy, sexist and just plain stupid advertising. Nice fucking work, McCann Erickson, Israel. Yes, this is a real print ad. I can't find a Rachel Lewenstein on Facebook, so at least the agency did some research. Israel! home to some of the most blatantly sexist ads ever created—most notably, the horrendous Bacardi Ugly Girlfriend fiasco, which was also done by McCann.

Christ, that photoshop is terrible. That nose is clearly the result of man playing God, an abomination.

I can't believe that any professional ad agency ever thought that this would sell anything? I can imagine that it's a very small percentage of people who wouldn't just find the whole thing incredibly offensive.

I'm impressed with how monumentally idiotic this ad is.

While Rachel's BFs get their eyes tested, she can fly over to see dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein.

He rebuilt the best he could Michael Jackson's nose by using fillers (hyaluronic acids) after so many previous botched surgeries.

re: "Online ad", it's actually a print (mag) ad in the description, but Coloribus have mis-categorised it.
