Good Ads: Sexy Forever

People magazine has a special issue out called Sexy Forever. It's cover-to-cover skinny stars, who lost all their pregnancy weight in five minutes. Since the editors understand their audience, the magazine even highlights stars who still look sexy even though they are -- gasp! -- in their 40s.

In the midst of all these scary skinny people, the ad above. And all I can say to New York, New York and its creative team is: Thank you. From all us sexy, laugh-out-loud, nickel-playing gamblers.*

*You know who you are, Eva.

(OK, the headline for the post is going to bring some new visitors. If you stopped by for juicy stuff, sorry. Wrong blog. Bye bye.)

i just won $0.30 in Vegas myself. Even at that, a pretty good feeling. I arrived with $20.00 and left with $20.30. Nickels are so much fun to gamble with!

30 cents! Whoo hoo!!! If you can arrive with $20, have a great time, and leave with $20.30, you are a definite winner. Heck, my sister and I can make a deal out of putting in 10 cents and getting five cents back ... "I won five cents!" Yeah, it's silly. But we have fun.

Hmmm. I may have to do a post re: our approach to gambling. It's another lesson from Mom ...

What could possibly be sexier than someone who can make something from nothing and write whole, engaging sentences - paragraphs, even - about it? The defense rests.

The defense rocks. Thank you! :-)

Thanks for making me laugh! I'm already looking forward to playing nickel and penny machines with you next time I'm in KC. It is a great approach to gambling!
