This is dumb.


The first part of this ad read "Air France salutes your freedom of choice".
Now I, like everyone else I know, voted for Obama. But 46% of the population didn't. So this ad runs the chance of ticking off at least 4 in 10. Maybe 70% of NY Times readers (where the ad is running) voted for Obama, but that's still 30% of people you're slighting. Of course that's a smaller percentage than usual for the French.

well, the ad is perhaps silly. but as you often say, you can't please them all. so maybe it's better you have 60% on your side and 40% against you than being crushed in the middle of the road.

At least this execution doesn't have a mini plane flying out some poor model's ear.
