Agreed. creepy. It looks like the leg of some robot/human hybrid gone wrong. And the ballet part is just ultra weird. But, this is Veredus. Their new talls boot ads in Dover consist of someone sitting around in white breeches with a violin which confuses the heck out of me.
Well-we all looked at the ad again, and here we go talking about it-so...maybe not a bad spot. I'm not in the market for a high tech boot, but if I were I think I would have looked with more attention, since you all made me!!
WTF is that??!! Seriously, I've never heard of the company before, this is my "virgin" experience and I am forever repulsed. That's some jacked up sh!t! I do not know what their advertising agency is smoking, but they need to knock it off and go to a few meetings - seriously...that's the kind of thing nightmares are made of.
I love ballet and I love horses, but that is the most ridiculous combination of the two I've ever seen. Seriously messed up.
I really dislike that ad as well. What bothers me is the way the boot sits on the calf- I think the bulge makes the leg almost look broken or something.
And how much do you want to bet that they came up with that idea because someone's little kid went running around the horse with horse boots on their legs just being silly and the parent thought to themselves "ooo that's a brilliant idea for an ad...."
