We've blogged about AshleyMadison.com before, but last night some of us saw a commercial for the site that was thoroughly revolting. A man slips from his place in bed next to a snoring (equally) chubby woman while a voiceover says,"Most of us can recover from a one-night stand with the wrong woman… But not when it's every night, for the rest of our lives." Cut to a picture showing that the woman is the man's wife. Yes, AshleyMadison.com caters to married men and women looking to have affairs with other marrieds. (A billboard for the site, which read "Life is short. Have an affair" was removed from New York's Times Square today, due to complaints.) A liberating service for consenting adults? Or a shameful idea whose existence corrodes moral fiber? Judge for yourself: Click the pic to see two commercials and the billboard. [YouTube, TMZ]
