Scared French ad agency asks me to remove "Hell's Angels" ad because they don't want to get beat up by Hell's Angels.

(click ad)
An email I received this morning.
"Hi there,
After several comments on blogs and in order to avoid any potential troubles with the Hell's Angels organization in the USA, Essilor USA is asking to withdraw the "Airwear lenses Unbreakable" print from blogs and websites.
Please, it would be more than appreciated if you could do so.

Thanks a lot for your understanding and your help.
Best regards,
Herezie agency"


Dear Herezie,
No.

Umm, Copycrank, while I think their reason is stupid, they - as the agency that did this ad - have the right to have it removed from your site or any other site. Technically speaking, they did not submit the ad to you for publishing. In fact, you have no permission to publish any ads on your blog unless such has been expressly granted.

I notice a lot of commenters are going with the highly original 'French are wimps' theme. If you really want to make your point, buy a ticket, fly to Montreal, and walk around in a 'Maurice Richard Was A Pussy' t-shirt.

P.S. Nice knowing ya.

A "Rocket" mention on a Habs fan's ad blog! Love it, thank you.

You're most welcome, CR. (Being Canadian, I was far too polite to point out that it was actually Essilor USA that was asking for the takedown.)

No one knows who Maurice Richard is other than his family and gay fanboys.


Aw, damn, I said it.

PS- Been punched by a Hells Angel.

Hells Angels are a worldwide organization with clubs all over Europe. You at Copyrantor should hope that nothing unfortuntate happens to an Essilor exec as a result of this exposure.
