Would you be offended by the image above? The image, which is an advertisement for an energy drink, may cause more controversy than sales for the small tobacco store in Norfolk, VA.
The ad states, ” The drink’s pure, it’s your mind that’s the problem”
Though sarcastic in its nature, does the ad have a point? Are we as consumers of popular culture the ones who must make the decision on what is fair or foul? Or are their certain instances where there’s only right or wrong?
Now personally, I believe all situations are subject to their own unique analyst. Ads for adult pleasure enhancements aren’t subject to the same scrutiny as ads for kids toys.
But the ad in itself brings up a question that both creators and consumers struggle with. When is something just too much?
