What the what?!!?

10 Aug

I saw this bus stop ad near my house. It is soo weird. What the hell does it mean? I know Levis made the first jeans which were used for workers back in the day. But my interpretation of the ad is the following:  The kid is a product tester for the new type of shirt he was paid to sew for five cents an hour in Indonesia. Is he a worker? If so what does he do? Kids don’t wear adult sized shirts and if they did I would assume they would wear pants too. Maybe it’s just me. I hope so.

    Hey, it makes me wonder… How do you know that “The kid is a product tester for the new type of shirt he was paid to sew for five cents an hour in Indonesia.”?

      Because he is running around testing its durability. Flailing his arms while running in circles for hours to determine the cloth’s tear factor. That or he’s not a product tester. He’s a model hired by Levis’ ad people to make Levis seem more hip to the hipsters who don’t shop there yet. Either way I hope he got paid well.

        but he doesn’t look like Indonesian 🙂

          Well he was adopted by an Indonesian child labor camp through an international adoption agency. Legally his parents now are Mr. and Mrs. Nobreaktildone.

          He was born in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles. Luckily he was abandoned by his parents on the steps of a St. Regis Hotel outside of Bel-Air. Or he would have grown up next to Paris Hilton.

          This is all just a guess of course.

            ah, ya. you made assumption. yet, though I know it is your right, I think it is way too far 🙂

            I agree that the ads creates anxiousness. yet, to define that the child comes from Indonesia, is too judgmental especially because he doesn’t look like an Indonesian children.

            though I heard that other brand has employed Indonesian children. but at least do not add another issue :p

    Its a weird ad not matter what – levis does that – you are to young to remember the weird 501 ad- young women in the jeans standing in a convertable everything is sepia fading farm house in the background and she suddenly yells ????? no ones sure but it sounded like “Travis you’re years to late”
    what did it mean ? what did it have to do with jeans?

      I think their ad people are just lazy and pick out weird images out of stock photos. Or they’re on crack. Very expensive high grade crack of course.

      Ancilla: I understand your thoughts. But you must also understand that this blog’s focus is humor, not news or facts. The post was simply a funny thought. My blog is full of much more crude thoughts and opinions, which are all jokes of different levels by the way. I am aware that the child doesn’t look Indonesian. But back to me…Didn’t you think my explanation of his adoption was funny? That was on the spot humor just for you. A joke made explicitly to explain to you that this post was just a silly thing not to be taken seriously. It’s funnier to post what I did post than simply posting, “Why is that model wearing no pants?” Which still needs to be answered.

    I agree, weird ad. I would not encourage me to buy the product, quite the reverse.
