The Wrap– “‘The copy we used in our recent catalog was inappropriate and in poor taste,’ the department store chain says. Bloomingdale’s is really sorry if an ad featured in a catalog appeared to not only approve, but actually recommend date raping your female best friend. The department store chain has issued an apology after complaints started rolling in on social media about an with copy reading, ‘Spike Your Best Friend’s Egg Nog When They’re Not Looking.'”

 

 

 

I’m not a PR guy, but I’d say this ad comes off juuuuust a tad aggressive. I mean HOW does this get by everyone over at Bloomingdale’s and make it to print? Hysterical that a company could even have the smallest thought that this might be a good idea. It’s 2015, where people try to take the smallest things and make them offensive, and Bloomingdale’s thought throwing something this sexually aggressive at us would not make people offended? Absolutely hysterical.

 

 

 

PS- Took me like five times looking at this thing to realize that’s not Robin Thicke on the right.
