Bed, Bath, and Booty
A Bed Bath and Beyond flier came in with the mail.
It was the college edition, titled:
We (heart) College!
It's filled with everything a college freshman will need: sheets, comforters, coffee makers, closet organizers, hair dryers, razors:
And of course, no incoming teen would be complete without her own booty enhancing underwear, also known as, The Booty POP!
Advertised right below hair dryers and flat irons, the booty pop can be found under Health and Beauty while registering for your wedding day, or gathering last minute supplies for college. What's interesting about this ad is the multi-outlet character/light socket (what is that thing?) asking, "Do I even have a booty?" wearing a pair of the underwear. This is meant to distract the reader/consumer from the fact that a sexualized advertisement has been placed in a flier that typically is selling shower curtains and pillow cases.
Don't mind us, just helping you get your daughter ready for college, and making sure she feels insufficient about her arse as she flies the coop.
One may say that BBB commonly sells "as seen on TV" products, even weights and fitness equipment. But do they sell penis enlarging underwear? Are breast enhancement shirts stocked with the slipcovers?
The website for this product shows the same model as the one featured in BBB, though far more dramatically posed. There she is, all sad and skinny, just another flat-bottomed teen, and AFTER!
Sexy bottom is licking a giant lollipop: bootylicious booty POP.
