And to today's advertising puzzle...

Below is a print ad for a chain of Fitness Clubs. What's your take on what the image below is all about?

What it's all about is that people who work in ad agencies do massive amounts of drugs and have a very slight grip on reality... :P

Hmmm... haven't a clue. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'd be VERY interested to hear your suggestion...

I think it says that if you use their fitness facilities you will live to an age where you are surrounded by fawning, plastiche airheads who are too dumb to know how to do up the buttons on their shirts....


....just a thought

something about having your gateau and eating it.

"Happily ever" = "old, cake-eating but still statuesque and desirable"

Just chiming in to agree with yani.

I've just discovered Muzbot and am enjoying flipping through the archives.

You're right, it is a little weird.

Maybe it's her "happy after", She's got the fantastic body, an old 100y.o. guy on the left with all the money and she also has the young men to play with...
Hmmmm, I guess she should be happy.

I find it disturbing that whilst they do HAVE a cake, they aren't EATING it!

The membership fees are obviously so expensive the guy on the left can't afford a new shirt with buttons that do up... ;P

I'm with Yani...the ad guys were all on drugs and confused the ad they were doing for the local strip club with the ad for the fitness club! LOL

Bizarre. A fitness club that cares more about glamour than helping someone lose weight/keep fit/exercise?
