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.
- Donald Trump promised insurance for everyone this weekend, but Senate Republicans say they assume he misspoke.
- President Barack Obama shortened Chelsea Manning's 35-year sentence for leaking documents to WikiLeaks. She'll be freed in May.
- Blue Lies Matter: Video finally proved that police officers lie — and why they get away with it.
- A Toronto man is on a mission to bathe at a different stranger's house every day this month. And so far, so good 🛀
