Calgary high-rise’s low-rent ads get pulled

A Calgary condo project's sexist ads have been yanked after an offended actor raised a ruckus about them. And not without cause, judging by the copy on the poster shown here. The ads were aimed at young professional men, and were put up in nightclub restrooms and other places where their prized misogynist douchewaffle audience would see them. But local thespian Wil Knoll took pictures of them and posted them online, gathering some pretty heated responses before the condo developer nixed the posters altogether. The ad agency, Watermark Advertising, apologized too, bravely admitting that "obviously our idea of fun isn't funny to the audience we are attempting to engage." Figures that even Canada's jerks are nicer than ours.
