Lies Well Disguised, #51.

Today on Gawker, I oh-so-deeply analyzed (link) that German Ass Ad [which won tipster Daniel Greenwald a Bacon Wristband]. To read any of the previous 50 Lies Well Disguised, just type those three words up in the search window.

I know you and others were in awe of the ass and have lamented its use while applauding its appearance. Was your word selection off when you typed baldy perhaps intending baldly? Still works, perhaps even better, but struck me as fat fingered, something I know from.

What I love is the Toto washlet ad that popped up next to the post on Gawker. (their website will give you a feel of what the banner looks like: http://www.washlet.com/). Nice targeted advertising.

The Germans love that stuff.

I think every issue of Archive has the obligatory German Penis Ad where we see some paunchy guy's pieter along with a headline that, like the ass ad, has nothing to do with nudity or penises.

You've never used ass in your ads?
