Real French Fries Shame Fake Breasts


Riffing on the increasingly fake aspects of culture from implants to injections to extensions, Toronto agency Zig created a print campaign for New York Fries which draws a dichotomy between fakeness and the all natural goodness of New York Fries.

Witty campaign but what's really sad is the fact an actual ad campaign is needed to sell something that is supposed to be fried potatoes and nothing else. Food - and everything else in this world - has become so processed, hardly anything is real anymore.

For example, breasts. Big breasts are great. Every woman seems to want them and every man seems to want to ogle and fondle them. Fine. Nothing wrong with obsessing over big breasts (well, OK, maybe it is a bit degrading to reduce a woman to a body part) but fake big breasts are exactly that. Fake. Not real. They don't look real. They don't feel real. They aren't attractive to look at. They aren't real. And fake isn't fun.

Neither are fake French Fries. Two other fake-focused ads are here and here.

You wouldn't like to reference that idea or some of those words you used with a comment on adfreak, would you?

Anyway, I recently got back into a b-cup through weight loss and natural food eating.

I. am. so. happy.

Thank you for calling out fake breasts. They're pathetic and disgusting.

Give me the real thing any day, no matter how tiny.

And what's up with this total turn-off of shaving pubic hair?
