(Larger image here, if you're so inclined.) It only took 10 years, but Goatse has broken into mainstream advertising courtesy of these public toilet-paper dispensers from Denmark, sponsored by Silk Soft and credited to an ad agency called By Far. (The goal, apparently, was to get across the idea that Silk Soft is 100 percent recycled.) There have certainly been ad parodies referencing ol' hello.jpg before, but this is the most direct homage to date. It also doesn't make any sense, from what I've gathered about the mechanics of toilet paper over the years. But logic has never stopped the fall of man before, and it's not likely to start now.
