Well, I found this after a friend suggested I search out Manhattan Mini Storage Ads, and this was probably the most shocking out of all of them. Manhattan Mini Storage tends to have ads that could be called controversial, and many of them have not-so-subtle left-leaning political messages embedded in them. I like this ad because, first of all, it is obviously supposed to be extremely provocative, and second, because it is a local ad, I think it may tell us something about the state of what is acceptable in New York vs. the rest of the country. The whole double-entendre of the coat hanger is just so wonderfully horrible, I couldn't resist...prettaaaaaay prettaaaaaaay pretttaaaaaaaaay interesting.
