    Default Harvery Nichols gets its adverts badly wrong

    I'm sure the advertising agency caught on the meme and though it would be great idea for an ad campaign: "So good you would wet yourself with excitement" and so it came to pass.





    I'm not rich enough to buy clothes from there, but somehow I doubt those who are, will consider clothes from there again. Divorced from reality is probably the nicest thing you could say about the ad agency, although divorced from the contract is likely to be the result.

    Anyone want a pair of shop soiled trousers?

    More on the story here.

    Shop at Harvey Nichols, where the clothes all smell like wee!

    Don Draper would be so proud.

    Making it doubly weird is that the model doesn't look remotely excited. She looks defiant.

    "Yes! I am peeing in these shiny, shiny pants. Do you want to make something of it?"
    So now they are just dirt-covered English people in fur pelts with credit cards.

    Clicking through the links takes you to their "walk of shame" advertisement, which is set to the tune "Morning Has Broken" by Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam. Now THAT would make Yusuf pee his pants, I think.

    I wet my pants just reading this thread, but my expression now is nothing like hers.

    Also, the clothes the model is wearing are ugly, pee stains or no pee stains.

    I sat the ads in the morning Metro freepaper on the way to work.

    The ads had been cropped at just above the level of the pee stain.

    I think someone has been listening to some feedback

    That model must have been very very very desperate for work.

    Maybe it was PhotoShopped in later? I feel sorry for the model, if so.
