Those Idiots that Apply Makeup While Driving? They're Glam Users.


I saw this graphic on the Glam Media website today. It was part of a rolling series of images intended to give advertisers a sense of the Glam audience.

Okay, Glam. It's one thing to seduce media folk with deceptive slideshow pictures of models. But a woman putting on makeup while in transit -- and on a moped, no less? (See Vespa mirrors.) That's not just a vapid lifestyle statement; it's stupid and dangerous.

< sarcasm > Way to go, you sassy women's network, you. < / sarcasm >

Fun fact: Glam Media was ranked the #1 online women's network last year.

Seeing that ad doesn't make me want to put on makeup while driving any more than watching a violent movie makes me want to murder someone.

Besides, maybe she's at a stoplight.

I think you may have prematurely jumped to your conclusion. If she was actually driving/riding a Vespa, she'd be wearing a helmet. But she does seem vain enough to stop on the street to use the mirror to apply lipstick.

I'm not even in advertising and your remark offends. I think if you're going to be sarcastic, you should find something real to snark about. This woman is merely using a mirror...there's nothing here to suggest she's one of those 'idiots' who apply makeup while driving.
