Evening Wood

AIDS is so fucking cool, ain't it? It’s the hippest, sexiest disease. So fashionable. That special shiny silver tape placed perfectly over exquisitely photographed Elijah Wood’s mouth shimmers doesn’t it? Yeah baby. That’s fucking hot. And how bout those special shiny Dog Tags us common folk can buy to show we’re down with Hollywood as to just how fucking cool AIDS is—yeah, a global Army of Coooooool. Gotta get me a pair of stylish Aldos to match my Tags, too. Yeah. Fucking. Cool.

I don't know which is better, this or Kenneth Cole's knockoff with the line, "We all have AIDS."

Have you seen the print campaign with the hot looking model types leering into the camera? The line: AIDS is beautiful. I suppose conceptually it's okay ("that hotty you're about to jump into the sack with has AIDS"), but the fact is, I'd guess there's a fair amount of ugly people with AIDS, too. The whole prettyfication of the disease is pretty nauseating though.

Hey, go easy on Frodo. He's just doing his part, getting paid extremely well to raise awareness.

As for the dog tags, I agree it's a little detached from the aids cause. Perhaps Aldo should have Frodo pimping little round condom packages called the "One Ring."

I dunno...too obvious?

Real copywriters complain about "everyday" used as a noun.
