Weezy, you got some 'xplaining to do.

Friday, March 7, 2008


I'm all for safe sex and all things that promote it.

With that said, I have to ask what the advertising executives at Strapped Condoms were smoking when they came up with the concept for its latest ad featuring Baby's F., Weezy? They should pass some of whatever it was this...unless it was crack. I want no parts of that.

When companies are trying to sell things, don't they usually tend to use a little eye candy and feature actual attractive people in their advertisements? I wonder why they used Lil' Wayne. That's a face only a mother (or Birdman) can love.

You can't even brown bag that.

To top things off (pun intended), the visual of an Elton John stand-in bending Lil' Wayne over the hood of a cop car in a most suggestive manner doesn't really scream "BE SURE TO USE CONDOMS WHEN YOU SCREW!" Or does it? Maybe that's why he's grimacing in pain the way he is.

Don't those condoms look like something you'd buy at in another country or from an Asian street vendor on Canal St. in Manhattan?

What in the HELL!! O.K. lil Weezy is putting himself out there for real.
Just looking at that ad does not make me wanna buy those brand of condoms, it will constantly remind me of way he looks. Yuck!!

POOR ADVERTISEMENT.

Maybe this ad is actually advocating abstinence? Cuz I sure as hell am not feeling sexy now.

I'm with you on trying to figure out what the execs were smoking - but, I wonder what the surveys and analysis tells us about sales of their condoms. I just wonder if this is working or not...

Don't know if you got one, but over at Highbrid Nation we got a cease and desist from Strapped Condoms telling us to take down the any ad with Lil Wayne, to never say anything bad about them again and to not even link to other sites with the ad. Of course we had a nice little laugh. Then we published the cease and desist and wrote an open letter to Strapped just to show the world how stupid they are.
