Shouldn’t your router work like a big orgy?


Sexist redundancy ad

Even if you speak German, you’ll have a hard time figuring out what this ad is trying to tell you. The headline says, “Redundancy creates security,” a reference to the “service” offered by German VPN/WAN access router manufacturer Viprinet. The image was proudly displayed as a massive banner over the company’s booth at a recent conference in Hannover. Obviously, sexist marketing and questionable metaphors go over better in Germany, because Viprinet says their banner was the hit of the conference. It’s now displayed proudly on the company’s Web site and available for download as a desktop wallpaper. Via Gizmodo.
