Out-of-Context Ad: The Steaks Are High

Filed under: Advertising, Recycled Newspaper — Tags: — Brian Lutz @ 1:48 am

Once again, I offer my apologies for the relatively light (and/or nonexistent) posting over the past week or so.  Between my recent return to work and a number of other things going on (and a bit of writer’s block on the side just to complicate things) I haven’t had a whole lot of time for Blogging recently, and is going to put a serious crimp on my ability to do a whole lot of research for a while.  It’s too bad, because since I started working in building 30 at Microsoft recently, I found out that this particular area used to be a sawmill back in Redmond’s early days, although about the only things left of it (at the site at least, apparently the mill equipment got moved out to Cle Elum and remains operational) are a historical marker of indeterminate origin and the thoroughly rusted remains of a ’29 GMC truck out (or what’s left of one anyway)  behind the building  with a tree growing through the middle of them and what I’m sure would be an interesting story behind it.

Anyway, since I don’t have much else to post right now (unless anyone wants to hear another long-winded lament about my chronic singleness) here’s another out-of-context ad in which dinner seems to be served with an extra side of drama.  I’d suggest that you speculate wildly about this one in the typical fashion, but to be honest I’m not sure if anyone’s actually reading this stuff.  If anyone wants it, I might even post the solution to the last one (if I can find it again on my rapidly growing collection of SDHC cards, that is.)

Oh, and by the way, if you didn’t notice already, by semi-popular demand I have gone ahead and started a Twitter feed, which you will find over to the left or at http://twitter.com/Brian_Lutz.  I might even update it every so often…

  1. Hmmm….an out of context ad…my guess it’s an ad for a pair of jeans or a car despite the picture having absoultly ZERO relation to those two items.

    Or maybe for A1 Steak Sauce? Is the woman sad because she has no A1?

    Or perhaps it’s an ad for PETA?

  2. Is that a Tear?

    I think she really loved that piece of meat.
    maybe it’s an ad for stoves.
