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.
- The family of Sandra Bland, who died in a Texas jail cell in July three days after she was detained during a traffic stop, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court.
- Migrant deaths in the Mediterranean have exceeded 2,000, making 2015 the deadliest year for people trying to reach Europe, according to the International Organization for Migration.
- Rapper 50 Cent may claim he's broke, but court records filed in his bankruptcy case show he has $10 million in various bank accounts.
