Meme Watch: Weapons of Mass Distraction


EasyJets ads may be confusing but they are not offensive.  While reprimanded for ads that don’t clearly disclose fare information, its ads that disclose women’s breasts with the tagline “Discover Weapons of Mass Distraction” were found by the UK Advertising Advertising Authority to be distasteful but not offensive.  Via AdRantsJupiterResearch reports that the woman whose breasts they were wasn’t aware those were her breasts in the ad.

People have filed U.S. trademark applications for WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION, WEAPONS OF MASS CONSTRUCTION and WEAPONS OF MASS INSTRUCTION, but have not yet filed for WEAPONS OF MASS DISTRACTION.
