    Default Creepy or not?

    Does anyone else find the picture Paul Schockemohle cheek to cheek with a stallion creepy? You know, the ad that pops up to the left of the forums sometimes?

    Is that the ad with the gray horse? So now I know who it is. Yes, I'm continually creeped out with it.

    It makes it even creepier that it is advertising his studs.

    I dunno. No more creepy than all those shots of women snuggled up to their geldings. You can read just as much into those pictures--and we usually jump on men who want to read something sexual into the whole women/horses thing.

    (I know there are real freaks out there, just not seeing it here)

    If that creeps you out...I'd say go out more, but maybe better not!

    I don't see the relevance to the product, but it's not creepy.

    He looks very much like John Travolta to me.

    He just has an intense look with a mysterious smile, like he knows more than I do about things. Which is probably true, since he has millions of dollars and Totilas and I don't.

    It's kind of a weird ad, but I don't find it creepy. I think it's mostly strange because of how closely it's cropped: why do we need to be soooo close to Paul Schockemoehle?

    It just made me wonder what he was selling. Don't know anything about him, but the ad photo made me think he's pretty full of himself. Am I wrong?

    I am so happy I am not alone. I was just thinking the exact same thing three days ago when I noticed it in a few week old chronny.

    I am sure he is no shrinking violet, but from past coverage, he seems like a down to earth guy.
