Not a good bus advertisement

Not a good bus advertisementWhile driving around at lunch one day I noticed an advertisement on the side of a bus that I thought was pretty odd and probably a bad idea.  Before you tell me that it can’t be that bad because I’m talking about it and took a picture of it, I’m not going to say what it’s for, so there!

There have been some pretty good advertising ideas I’ve had the pleasure of seeing (including a banner over 20 stories tall for the Transformers movie).  Seeing this ad just made me wonder why they would use this graphic, would put it on a bus, and put it on a bus that primarily is driven within low income, primarily Hispanic, neighborhood.

Since I took the picture to share, it’s available in four ways. 

First, the ad without the bus:

Next, the ad on the side of the bus, but zoomed in:

Now the full picture I took, in a lower resolution mode and resized:

Now if you want to have the full image, as taken and downloaded from my Canon SD550 camera, click here.
