Sheer tastlessness

This banner ad is shocking for two reasons.

Not only is it the most tasteless exploitation of tragedy I’ve ever seen on or off the web, it is also stunningly tacky and badly designed.

This ad was briefly in circulation on many affiliate sites before it was pulled (no doubt due to public outrage).

Can you believe that somebody thought this was a good idea to begin with? I mean, was there a board meeting? Was there a committee of execs that signed off on this?…

"Well, we couldn’t find a graphic designer with the requisite lack of human dignity and professional pride so I threw this one together myself. Whaddya think, guys?"


"I love it!"

"It’s a winner!"
