Funny ad

I just noticed and saved a copy of the ad below

20090225-VBLT_INT_1724_728x90.jpg

I wonder how many people won't recognize that these fins belong to dolphins, will think the "close encounters" are with blood thirsty sharks (the term is often used to describe brushes with danger) and will stay far, far away from Virginia Beach...

Nice work, marketing department!

I'd have pegged them as dolphins right away..but yea, some people aren't too brilliant.

Yeah, the arched back is telling, but many people I know associates fins sticking out of water with sharks. Then again, many people I know aren't too brilliant.

That is pretty funny. And you know that some people will think that they are sharks.
