    gym advertising

    OK, so I'm walking by the women's locker room (it's between the men's locker room and the weight room) yesterday and I notice an ad directly outside of it...

    "Bacardi and Diet Coke! 66 calories, 0 sugar! 0 carbs!" With a picture of some fitness models smiling and drinking...

    is it just me...or is the gym the wrong place for this ad? now I enjoy drinking...hell, i even like bacardi a lot...but I was a little thrown off by the ads in the gym...

    anyone else find this a little inappropriate?

    Yeah every company in America is trying to tap into the weight loss market these days. I like the Michelob Light ads with the fitness buffs enjoying a nice cold bottle of beer.

    And we thought protein/dextrose was the best concoction for pwo drink...I guess little do we know, hehe.

    Yeah cb25,I don't care to see those type of adds at all...........but the liquor and cigarette company's will stoop to any levels to get thier products promoted,they find a grey area..ie:"weakness" and thier in.

    You can't blame a company for trying to market their product to different groups of people. I know that if I was the CEO of a company I would do whatever it took to maximize my profits ( within the law and moral standards of course). Like I'm sure the rest of you do, I don't pay any attention to those type of ads because they are intended for stupid people.
