Backlash over Bloomingdale’s holiday ad

This final note on the way out today, in which somebody at Bloomingdale’s somehow still doesn’t get it.

An ad in the 2015 Bloomingdale’s holiday catalog goes like this: A woman looks away laughing while a man looks at her less than innocently — all with the tagline “Spike your best friend’s eggnog when they’re not looking.”

Gotta have people read those a couple of times, I think, huh.
