ADVERTS OF CRASS COMMERCIALISM. Because, if Kenny stops forcibly cramming square peg headlines into round hole ads, the terrorists will have won. What's the next hot button issue you're going to insensitively usurp to sell merch, Cole? How 'bout global warming/watches: BETTER "WATCH" IT, OUR PLANET IS RUNNING OUT OF TIME! Or, Darfur/men's ties: SHOW THE WORLD YOUR DRESSY SIDE, NOT GENOCIDE! etc.
(also: "The Writing Is On The Wall"—so mysterious! What's the frequency, Kenneth? What does it mean, man? [answer: absolutely nothing.])
previously in idiotic ken cole ads:
1. Kenneth Cole owns AIDS.
2. Cole loses yet another battle in war on words.
3. Cole's puns are re-hyphen-tarded.
related on Gawker: Kenneth Cole. Heel.

The "War is not about who's right, but who's left" quote is especially obnoxious because he didn't write it. You see it anytime their is an anti war rally. Fucking plagiarist!

Hey Copy Ratner, I have an unrelated question. I'm stuck in the hell known as corporate copywriting, but I want to break and make more money doing even stupider crap.

Do you recommend any conceptual ad/copywriting classes in the NYC area? I remember you mentioning something about SVA, etc....

The writing is on the wall? But, bigger question: why is the wall corrugated?

Kenny C is to advertising as Kenny G is to Jazz.

Odious dude. I think Kenneth Cole needs Kenny G. wailing Coltrane with KKK back-up dancers in white hoodies or some bullshit. Or ... a bare-foot un-armed amputee model for their "We condemn the right to bear arms" thing. Throw in a dancing bear. Also also also, Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin scrawled in the upper LEFT-hand corner of the ad. Douchebags.

Or maybe Manolo Blahnik can do one: “Saving the world–one sole at a time.”

'Cuz nothing shows that you care about the state of the world like a pair of $200 sunglasses. Kenneth Cole is the Lord of the 'Tards.
