Is this a case of Jews being overly sensitive or a legitimate gripe against an anti-Semitic billboard?
At first blush I thought the ADL was just lacking a sense of humor with its claims that this billboard from Wodka vodka in Manhattan was "crude and offensive" and that it "reinforces anti-Semitic stereotypes."
But then I noted the two pictures of dogs, one wearing a Santa Claus hat and the other a yarmulke.
Then I read about some of the other ads in this advertising campaign and came to the same realization as the ADL.
That an ad like this is attempting to leverage old Jewish stereotypes and is wrong!
Other ad tag-lines in the series include "Movie Star quality, Reality T.V. pricing" and "Escort quality, Hooker pricing."
Each seems to be saying that the former phrase is high quality and expensive while the latter is low quality and inexpensive.
What is your opinion: Edgy advertising or over-the-line?
