Spirit Air Ad Exploits Secret Service Hooker Scandal

They've pulled it, of course, which was the plan all along.

Posted on

That's too bad, what with all the money the airline spent on that spiffy secret service agent stock photo (Here it is.)

Spirit Airlines released a statement saying that at the Colombian government’s request, “Spirit pulled its ad yesterday, and we meant no disrespect to our many friends and valued customers.”

Sure sure.

Spirit has a long history of this type of vulture marketing, previously exploiting WeinerGate, the bp oil spill, MILFs, and, uh, muff diving.
