Bowlmor Lanes has apparently become an indoor cricket field. Either that, or this is the most blatantly untruthful bowling alley ad in the history of bowling alley ads. It's like a wink without an eye.



The Bowlmor Girls. Now With Zero Bowling.

Sexual subtext of this message contrived to make one want to go bowling:

"Oh, I am so petite and you caught me in the act! See my tremulous yet insouciant fear? Yes! I am stealing bowling pins because I am greedy! Greedy girls crave the penis! See how I can barely hold them all? It's because I am so small and your penis will IMPRESS ME! It is also because you need to imagine that I can barely hold all my clothes on. Please, please, take me bowling. Show me how heavy your balls are that will KNOCK down my pins!! Please!"

I went to this place last year when we were doing a shoot in NYC.

It was cool. They have music and everything.

Me and the other Brits took on some Yanks from the crew - and we won! We were so excited.

Then someone pointed out we beat Hair & Make-Up.

Given the deer in the headlights look she's obviously stealing, so "No pins." makes more sense than "No alley."

OR - maybe the point is she's craving pins which we substitute with penis because it's only one letter away from the correct answer in a Jumble.

But if that were the case wouldn't the association be more clear by showing the waif with the same look on her face but in cut-offs and high heels straddled atop a single pin with four or five more pins around her head poking in from the sides?

Damb ad people. Always tryuing to make things so damb hard.

bowlmor has come a long way...

i remember having bowling birthday parties in that joint back in the early-mid 80's

then again, i also had roller skating parties at the Roxy but at that age I had no clue what went on there during weekend nights.

I believe it is not cricket they are turning to, but skittles, the ancient game of ninepins played out on grass by the Tories back in colonial days on the ol' bowling green down on Bowling Green when it actually was a bowling green.
