Vodka Maker Pulls NYC Billboard Blasted as Anti-Semitic 'Christmas quality. Hanukkah pricing'

Wódka vodka promises "Christmas quality" at "Hanukkah pricing" with this New York City billboard showing a pair of pooches, one in a yarmulke and the the other in a Santa cap. How festive! The Anti-Defamation League and consumers bashed the board as being anti-Semitic for suggesting Jews are cheap and/or Christmas is a higher-quality holiday. The ad's creator, who's Jewish, says the billboard is being removed from the West Side Highway. Still, you couldn't expect Wódka to take the high road now, given the brand's past classy slogans like "Escort quality. Hooker pricing." Oy, this stuff will drive you to drink. A pair of earlier ads after the jump.
