GAH! Work [Mar. 15th, 2007|10:30 am]

[Current Mood |contemplativecontemplative]

Mainly a work rant here. I was supposed to get off at 10:30pm last night. Guess what time I actually left? 11:40pm! Because the other girl called and said she'd be late and asked me if I could stay another hour. *GRUMBLE* and it's not like I could call the supervisor to come to work for one lousy hour. So I didn't get home until past midnight. I hope she doesn't do this to me today...

Since Allie posted her thoughts on the CKin2u perfume ad, I thought I'd ask what you guys thought of the Diesel's Global Warming Ad Campaign. There's actually a bit of a rant on the 'net about it ranging from disgust at using the seriousness of Global Warming to sell jeans to it bringing awareness to an egocentric society. As for me, I just think of it as eye-candy. Like art. Does it raise my awareness? No, but then I already knew about Global Warming and I've always been more posed to doing my little part (whatever it may be, e.g. recycling, water conservation, possibly buying a hybrid in the future) for the environment. Does it make me disgusted? No, like I said - EYE-CANDY. I don't take the ad seriously or with whatever message it's sending or supposed to send. Do I think it's lame? Not really... not as lame as say Paris Hilton trying to sell Carl's Jr's burgers in a bikini while washing a sports car.

LOL No kidding about the ads.

I agree that I hope she doesn't take advantage of you again.

Er, the Diesel campaign's taking advantage of our earth's sad state to sell jeans, true...but I'd rather them use global warming than sex, you know? At least they're KIND OF spreading a save-the-earth message on the side. XD

hahahaha... but they're supposedly looking "sexy" while Global Warming has destroyed the environment in the background. ;D
