Nasty banner...

Who the hell thought the repugnant Safariland banner with the fat potbelly guy in a Speedo would be welcomed in my email box??

See below... anyone else want to take a second look?? No? Me either, but it's showed up in at least 4 emails...

And WHAT does it have to do with holsters or other gun-related stuff?

I know I'm blind now. I went through all of the posts in that email and never noticed the ad. I guess I have become blind to ads. If it had been a female I wonder if I would have noticed! Glad there wasn't a test.

Take some of the cash you save at Safariland, and buy yourself a sense of humor.

Its one of the photos from their front page, to be honest I seen it about a week ago, and almost mentioned how I thought it was funny. Im more inclined to shop with them now.

My op is meant to be tongue-in-cheek...
How'd they come up with that banner anyway?

Add person 1 - "Hey, we have a empty spot in the GLS Fit Is Everything banner, what should we put there?"

Add person 2 - "How about a fat guy in a little Speedo showing what a bad fit is?"

Add person 1 - "Great idea, our buyers are 95% men, they'll love to see the Speedo guy instead of bikini girl showing what a good fit is!".

Add person 2 - "Right, and lets send it to them several times."
Add person 2 - "I forgot to tell you, this morning I had a huge BM and I sent a picture of it to my brother."

Add person 1 - "Ugh... I'll bet your husband is proud".
