Today’s Awesome Thing is: These ridiculous advertisements for handbags.
These pictures just strike me as absurd–and thus, awesome in the sense of “wow, this is a truly bizarre thing that I cannot sum up in a few words.” How to explain it? These photos amaze me. It’s like someone took Martha Jones from Doctor Who, dressed her up prettily, and then dropped her into the wetland behind my parent’s house. At first, she’s enjoying the softness of the plants. But then, she gets her serious on, turns her bag blue, and straps on her heels to walk her way to civilization, à la Romance and the Stone. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not dissing these pictures. They’re gorgeous! But I’d really love to know what the driving idea behind this ad campaign was. It makes no sense to me.
Sadly, I cannot remember where I got these images from, else I’d point you there. (And give credit for the photos, natch!) If anyone knows, please tell me.
