Bad timing on the underwear-face-mask ads


Now is probably not the best time for random face-mask references in advertising. Particularly if the face masks are made of underwear. This ad was made by Euro RSCG Duesseldorf and promotes some kind of disinfectant laundry additive. But if this were the last thing I saw before undergoing surgery, I would assume the doctors were about to steal my kidneys. In fact, I would take the initiative to kill myself before those butchers hacked me up on the table. I would also wonder where they put their real surgical masks.
