Some Ads Aren't
What They Appear
Dear Bullseye Customer:
Thank you for contacting us regarding our
holiday catalog advertising depicting an adult
male baking cookies with a pre-adolescent boy.
While it might appear to be a father and son
enjoying some pre-holiday fun, actually it's the
boy's mother's boyfriend, who, unbeknownst to
her, is a registered sex offender grooming the
child for impending abuse. The boy's mother is
away working two jobs because the father left
her for an exotic dancer and spent the child
support money on a new sportscar. The boy's
father is a no-good, deadbeat, child-abusing
domestic violence perpetrator who never comes
around, so naturally the child is drawn to a
charismatic sociopath. Under the colorful apron
(available at Bullseye for $14.99) he's not
wearing any pants.
We at Bullseye endeavor to reflect the
real-life experiences of our customers in our
advertising. Please watch for our upcoming
"Affording Christmas Even When You're Not
Getting Any Child Support from the Ex"
Thank you for your interest.
