Come Check Out the Oil on Our Beaches

CNN Money posted up a great gallery today with ill-conceived advertisements taking a hit on the oil spill disaster.  Apparently the travel industry isn’t the only one trying to take advantage of the situation, like this ad for Spirit Airlines.

New York Sports Club released an ad saying “Exercise sharpens the brain. Oil execs come in asap.”  You even get a week free membership to the gym if you are an executive or you are “tired of their excuses.”  Bravo NYSC for donating old towels to help the clean up effort and call out execs for poor management.

The other ads listed include an airplane flier for PETA blaming the meat industry for rises in oil prices and usage, as well as a couple of cute aliens laughing at the Gulf.  The tagline: “Let’s not be the joke of the universe. Make Earth proud.”
