Your ad's so confusing, it makes Bush's policies look lucid.

I've seen this ad for Manhattan Mini Storage on the A train a few times now. This particular ride, I stared at it for a good 125 blocks trying to figure out what the fucking hell it means. No luck. That's "Cheney," with an "I Love Haliburton" button on his lapel. Yesterday, I consulted a whip-smart, gay VP of digital content (who never was in the closet, as far as I know). His interpretation: "If they're saying your apartment's narrow closet represents your beliefs or mind, then even Cheney's beliefs are more liberal than you/your closet..."
I...don't know. I keep coming up with the visual of Dick ass-fucking a submissive Karl Rove in a secret gimp bunker below the White House. (image put into my head, kinda, by the sick, brilliant Rude Pundit.)

1. Unfortunately, these are not your Grandfather's underpants.
2. The Rolling Grass Thing.
4. Anti-Bush. Pro Cock.

That's a very "New York" ad. That sh*t wouldn't fly in the rest of the country.

I'd fuck Dick Cheney. Nothing fancy. Just deep, hard and rough.

Should it be "Is you closet....?" or at least have a question mark?

And if your closet's narrowness is equivalent to Chaney's liberalism, doesn't that mean that you don't even have a closet.....

Wait, maybe that's what they're saying!

Copyranter, you misjudged them - this ad is genius!

Unfotunately most people who don't have a closet, won't get it.

This queer SVP copy guy gets it. It has nothing to do with being "in the closet." It has everything to do with small NYC apartments. Love all the ads in this series...including the one with Paris Hilton's dog. Hysterical.

anon, I figured you'd at least go with “I‘d fuck the lesbian right out of his daughter.””

We all know that liberals are open minded, noble and expansive and conservatives are evil, nasty, tight assed meanies. We all know that, right? R-i-i-i-g-h-t.

If the audience has to consult a whip-smart, gay VP of digital content to figure out what it means, then the ad is a fuckin' failure. Aren't The Gay VPs of Digital Content a band?

I hate those Manhattan Mini Storage ads. I cringe every time I see them on the subways.

Yeah, these ads do suck. The person who wrote them is trying to be very clever but doesn't seem to have a solid grasp of the English Language. There's probably a better way to write this bad idea so that it makes more sense, but why bother?

I thought this ad was a bit funny and exceedingly obvious. Amusing that people see "closet" and can't think of anything but "gay", though, especially in a storage company's ad.

Maybe it's ellipsis: "Your closet's so narrow(-minded), it makes Cheney look liberal."

Their ads are so weak they make the Dems look strong against terrorists...
