Red Strip Sells Beers to Paraplegic Drunk


There's just no end to the fuckery contextual advertising delivers. This time, we have Red Stripe beer advertising directly next to a story about two guys who got arrested while driving the same truck...together...while drunk. Even weirder, one of the guys was a paraplegic so he steered while his friend worked the pedals. You just can't make this shit up.

LOL that's about as sickening as all the car commercials that show idiots driving fast and wildly, breaking the law as they "enjoy" insane and potentially homicidal/suicidal usage of the product.

Advertising Without Conscience or Public Accountability.

We have taught the Machine Realm how to exist without morality, and now they're out to eliminate us. That's mechanical karma.

Thank you for posting this. I was doubled over laughing this morning, and knew your readers would enjoy this as well.

What was even better is, this was an ad that was animated to change messages so when I first clicked on the story it said "Boo spilled beer" then changed to the screen shot above.
