So, Uh, About that Rape Thing.
Yeah, that was kind of a stretch.
Here's what happened. Some tipster emailed us sounding off all offended about rape connotations in an ad on Wienerschnitzel's homepage. So we looked and saw this shit with the hungry Eskimos, and we were like, "Okay, whatever. We can kinda see the creepy rape angle."
The dude emailed us again today and said the spot on the site had been changed, which is why the whole Eskimo thing jived so badly with rape. Apparently the previous ad featured a wiener being harassed in an office setting, after which an HR woman says, "you asked for it."
"For the sake of certain people, it's better to leave the whole thing alone now. Thanks," the tipster concludes.
It was pretty much our bad for trying to see something that wasn't there, based on suggestion. Sorry, guys.
