A: It would have sucked.
Don’t be fooled by the movie poster homage/ripoff.
From Spiegel Online:
A debate is raging in Istanbul about just how much skin advertising billboards should be allowed to show. The dispute highlights the deep divisions between Muslims and secularists in the country. And it may become an election issue…
On the one side stands the Justice and Development Party (AKP), led by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan … Some swimwear manufacturers have complained that [AKP] city officials have banned certain revealing advertising posters for bikinis and bathing suits for “moral reasons.”
On the other side are the left-leaning, strict-secularist nationalists who fill public squares each weekend with massive, anti-AKP demonstrations accusing the party of wanting to transform Turkey into a theocracy.
People, can’t we all just get along? Here’s a compromise.
Well, we may have finally found a True banner ad that True itself is ashamed of (at left). There’s no True logo — just the logo of an online ad network called CPX Interactive.
Click the ad, and you’re sent to a special page within True where there’s a Flash video of a woman lying in bed in her underwear, pecking away on her laptop, chatting with a True.com suiter she calls “hotstuff.”
Oh well — at least she’s not holding a teddy bear.
