Freaky Friday... Finger Lickin' Good?

Have you seen this?

THIS is why you hire professionals to promote your brand if you want to actually succeed...

Whilst watching this ad for Extended Stay Hotels, I realised that people today will do absolutely ANYTHING to get noticed!




The ads appeal is obviously geared towards men as it only falls slightly short of a soft porn movie with the "actress" looking into the camera as she licks things in the room. ...but I'm sure that some men wouldn't even stay at these hotels since the girl probably doesn't come with the room.

And if you are a germ-a-phobe, like me forget it...she just licked her germs everywhere! :)

Note to Extended Stay Hotels: This ad doesn't make your hotel more appealing. It makes it UNappealing!

I'm thoroughly grossed out now and going to take a shower.

Well it most likely will get them a lot of publicity. But I am with you, it makes the hotel totally unappealing to me. Gross.

Hmm.. lots of publicity yes. I wonder if the point isin't trying to be made that it's a clean place to stay? I don't know.. but I wouldn't stay there.. Nope. It's pretty gross really.. not to mention the girl looks only about 18. Okay. Peace.

This is actually an ad for a real hotel? OMG! Would be a good ad for a pay-by-the-hour-motel -- if you know what I mean.

LOL! That's gross - I wonder if the girl caught anything... those things are so clean in the first place! Yuck!
