It’s not me….it’s you…

Have you been following the controversy over Pizza Hut’s advertising campaign in the UK? At first it seems like it’s just a low-budget weird kind of fan site dedicated to mini bits of bread. But now, when Kim Kim (on my blogroll) wrote to the advertising and marketing department she received a real response back which is almost as offensive as the website itself. First of all, check out the website for yourselves

www.adopt-a-bite-now.com

Then, go to Kim Kim’s blog to check out their response. I’m so dumbfounded over it all that I hardly know what to write. These people went to a LOT of trouble to produce the photos and clips. But mostly, it’s the copy that gets to me. Please weigh in! I myself have a pretty good sense of humor and am not easily offended. For instance, I’m not personally offended by things like adopt-a-highway. I’m not always politically correct. But this is just plain not funny and somehow manages to insult and denigrate each party involved in adoption. Please look and see for yourselves. If you’re offended, Kim Kim has posted the e-mail of the executive involved.

************UPDATE*************

The offending ad has been removed!! After about 24 hours after Kim Kim posted about this ad and the resulting complaints, they have removed the ad. Well done everybody! and thank you to Kim Kim.

    Isn’t it amazing? It’s the power of doing something in a pack.

    Now that they have removed the ad I can go to Pizza Hut one time again.
