Ads #10: Worst Advertisement... Ever

Some questions on what simply has to be the most awful print ad since the days of Gutenberg.
  1. What was the chain of logic that led up to the decision to place five nude men in a sock ad?
  2. Are the black guy's genitals slapped up against the the back of the neck of the man in front of him?
  3. Is the man in orange socks cold and deeply ashamed? And if so, why is Frankie Goes to Hollywood on the floor so comfortable and relaxed?
  4. Lastly and most importantly, what in the name of all that is holy in the world is the guy on top doing in an ad like this? This guy is too ugly for a beer ad, let alone being splayed butt naked on a glass cube. Let's see.... bald, overweight, pasty - hey, let's put your naked body in a sock ad!
It's going to take some time for me to recuperate from this one. Pray for me.

  4. Sorry to subject you guys to this, but it was just too unspeakably terrible to be kept under wraps any longer.

  7. I'm guessing this particular ad is from the 1970s. PLEASE don't tell me it was from any other period of time.
