Last night American Apparel sent out an email blast in the midst of Hurricane Sandy (ironically, most of their targeted audience had already lost power by then) to launch a sale intended for “bored” shut-ins in the path of the storm. Nothing like power loss, upset pets and wind-noises outside that sounded like an angry, toothy blowjob from God to totally bore you, amirite?
Anyway, there’s a silver lining to all this destruction, Ad Week reports:
SPANDEX ONESIES FOR EVERYONE!
But American Apparel wasn’t the only retailer who employed tacky storm-springboard advertising.
Gap later issued a semi-apology via Twitter; still nothing from American Apparel. Cute.
