I’m a bad man…

When I saw this on Low Culture this morning I just about peed my pants laughing.

The photo is of a Cingular Wireless billboard posted in Brooklyn. I’m sorry folks, I know that the 9/11/01 WTC attacks are still fresh as new snow in the minds and hearts of New Yorkers, but this is just funny.

You just know that this billboard was cooked up by some young smartasses in Cingular’s ad agency’s creative department. I’ve been enjoying advertising so much more since people my age and younger took over in the creative departments. I’m a cynical, jaded smartass, so it’s easy for me to spot the work of my own kind, and it’s all over the place and has been since the early 1990’s. Is it heartless? Yes. And that’s precisely why I love it.
