Blagger's Blog – Chaplin's World, beef is best, what imperfections?
A weekly roundup of media news, sans effort
Quote of the week
“Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.” Charlie Chaplin offering worldly advice, which seemed fitting given the new museum, Chaplin’s World, opens just outside Lausanne, Switzerland, on Sunday.
Despite the moral issues involved in advertising dead flesh for sale- both in terms of animal welfare and the environment- many of us at Smoking Gun towers are partial to a bit of beef, especially when the meat gets an ad like this Australian beaut.
Match.com hit the motherlode of strap lines when someone came up with ‘love your imperfections’, but sadly failed to understand that by juxtaposing this with the freckled face of a red head plenty of people would probably take offence. That’s what happened this week, with the ad now removed from the London Underground.
