Moms and Beards: Adventures in Strange Advertising

I thought I would share something a little different from the norm with this post - and hopefully it will at least bring a smile and some wonderment into your day. Check out this screen shot from that I grabbed a couple of weeks ago, and especially take a look at the advertisement on the right hand side (see the close-up below). What is going on here?! Was this a hacked ad, or just a really bad one? Maybe they're just trying to hit bearded moms with their advertising. Anyway, we found it amusing, and we hope you do too. Enjoy:

Here's the screenshot:

    This ad is ridiculous. Is see it constantly and somehow missed the "moms" part.

    Thanks for the smile.

    Now that I've posted this, I have seen this guys face on a bunch of different ads - especially on yahoo. While most of the other ads aren't claiming this guy is a mom, they still baffle me with their use of such a 'handsome' man. I find it hard to believe that he's generating many hits. haha.

  5. That's a small market if they are going with the bearded moms thing.
