Dear parents, buy your boy a Daisy OR WE WILL KIDNAP HIM

November 15, 2012

BB gun ads are no strangers to odd imagery juxtapositions, but the messaging behind this one seems a bit off. Yes, they’re trying to say that Daisys are so unbelievably awesome, kids will forsake their bikes on chilly autumn streets to go off a-shootin’. But when I see a bike cast down like that, I think A kid has been thrown into the back of an unmarked van and is being whisked away to an unspeakable fate. A milk carton portrait shall be his epitaph. If that’s want you want your relatively harmless weaponry to be associated with, then by all means, Daisy, be my guest.

In fairness, I guess an armed child is an un-kidnapped child.

    I don’t think they were trying to say that kids would leave their bikes to go a-shootin’. They’re trying to say that if you’re a lazy kid that doesn’t take care of his bike, the kind that just lays it down in front of the garage where someone else will have to deal with it, then your parents are going to know that you’re too irresponsible for gun ownership.
