Cingular Outdoor Campaign Causes Unnecessary Overreaction
In the "it's just a fuckin' ad" category, Adland points to a Low Culture article which, while likely a spoof, calls attention to a Cingular outdoor campaign that shows cell phone bars breaking through the top of the billboards border. Apparently, Low Culture has never seen cell phone bars or realized the twin towers were the same height and thinks this ad is a sick twin towers/9.11 joke by Cingular. Calling the billboard "tasteless" and insensitive," Low Culture claims the city is still reeling from the 9/11 attacks. Not to belittle the event in any way (I knew someone on one of the planes) but New Yorkers are resilient. They move on. We've all moved on. This is just an ad and a good one for that matter.
