Radio Shack Enlists Saran Wrapped Hotties to Sell Dildo-Like Radio
Good God! The horror! What's got out panties in a bunch? Radio Shack, that's who. You know, that electronics brand that's been around for since 1925 and is named after a device no one even owns any more. And has managed to survive despite the massive uprising of big box electronics retailers.

Hmm. Having said that, the approach actually makes sense since the Pill basically looks like a gigantic dildo.
In the ad, bikini-clad ladies -- and Robin Thicke -- dance to the musician's Blurred Lines all while suggestive hashtags such as #UWANTIT flash across the screen.
