I honestly don’t know if this is a “real” ad.
But this Turkish ad agency (Batarya) has been producing ads for T-Diamond, an actual Turkish diamond retailer, for a while now.
The ad is also on the agency’s Facebook page.
Also, in my eight years of ad blogging, I have noticed that Turkey does occasionally produce this…brand of advertising.
Here’s one of the agency’s previous somewhat less tasteless (but still sexist) ads for T-Diamond.
I emailed Batarya and asked them if this is a “real” ad.
- A large object discovered Wednesday on the coast of the island of Réunion belongs to the same type of aircraft as missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a U.S. official told the Associated Press.
- A University of Cincinnati officer has been charged with murder for shooting Samuel Dubose, an unarmed black man.
- Uber drivers waiting for ride requests near the International Airport of Mexico City were pelted with rocks, sticks, eggs, and flour yesterday afternoon. Local authorities are investigating the incident.
