This Thom McAn ad will make you either want to buy the shoes or savagely pummel the people selling them
This ad is a little late for back to school shopping for the kids — more than half a century late, actually — but it deserves to be posted just to gawk at the stunningly, teeth-achingly awful hep-talk within. Granted, Thom McAn, his pretentious “h” and his deformed silent elf sidekick are nowhere to be seen, but still — the infuriating rhymes are enough to put you off your lunch. One doesn’t know if the football player on top is really trying to couple “semester” with the made up “besta,” but he isn’t doing the dumb jock stereotype any favors either way.
The shoes don’t look that bad, though.
