Maybe I’m just a sucker for an effective ad campaign. Want me to buy your product? Come up with a commercial that gets my attention and sticks in my mind, and most likely your widget will magically appear in my shopping cart next time I’m out.
Right now, I want to buy some Brawny paper towels. Evan might have found Brawny’s new virtual woodsman creepy, but I found it…well… Let’s just say I downloaded the screensaver for further examination.
Now, it’s not quite perfect by any means. I know I’m not — as a gay man — the intended audience, but I do have a few helpful suggestions. I mean, I’d have gone with a hunkier woodsman, and maybe given him a haircut. And it would have been nice to have a few choices, say, among different types of woodsmen. But, as a little free virtual interlude goes, it’s not bad. One could do worse.
Maybe next we’ll get a virtual Rosie?
