I was browsing my motocross magazine when I stumbled across an interesting ad. It had an older man surrounded by three ladies. Each of the three ladies showed different characteristics. The bigger lady on the left hand side had a tattoo of an anchor on her left shoulder. The one standing behind the man was cradling her stomach showing that she was pregnant. Both these ladies could be considered lower class due by looking at the clothing each of them was wearing. The lady on the right was in a nice dress, sporting a pearl necklace. Then looking at the text at the top of the ad, it was obvious that this was a humorous play on, “the world’s most interesting man.” ad campaign with many implicit messages hidden throughout the ad itself.
Looking at the tattoo on the leftmost lady made me wonder why a woman would have such a different tattoo. After some internet research I found out that there could be one of two reasons that would be fit for this ad. The first reason is that she is stable, maybe referring to the fact that she was the man’s holler back girl and would always be there for him. The second reason is that she is bisexual or lesbian and proud of it. This idea stuck me since she looks like she could be the man in the relationship. She is fairly masculine for a female, and also seems to have an Adams apple. This tattoo is coming back into style in a category known as retro and could play into modern culture.
The lady in the middle is obviously pregnant. The pregnancy could represent the careless actions of unprotected sex, something that our culture is wrapped around.
The woman on the far right seems to be using the older man as a sugar daddy. She looks like she might have a boob job and is craftily stealing the wallet out of the older man’s pocket. She also seems out of place in this ad compared to the two other girls. Did the author of this ad do this on accident or was it on purpose showing all the results of being a player could lead to.
