Am I missing something? This "guy" is hideous and very scary.
Am I missing something, or is this another drunk thread?
This is NOT a drunk thread. Is that not the most hideous thing you have seen to put on a banner advertising your company?
It's to frighten you into voting, so that people like that guy don't decide for you?
Well, it frightens me to do something, I don't know about voting. I'll feel like an idiot here, if I am missing something...because I just have no idea why that shemale is on that banner. I love SmallDog..But...I am so confused.
Oh gosh yes...
What are we talking about here, I can't see anything, and WTF is SmallDog?
Loving the graphic! SmallDog = Apple retailer that seems to advertise on this site a lot.
that guy is pretty freaky looking
Okay, WHEW...I am glad it wasn't just me hallucinating at 2 o'clock in the morning.
Hint: Disable PithHelmet.
Maybe they were going for a guy in the street look and not a model. Well, they might have gone a little too far
A bit bizarre, actually.
lol...Yeah! Maybe they were going for a guy who'd like to be a model on the street.....corner.
That doesn't look like a guy...
Yeah well, that's half the reason this thread was created.
Uhh, I don't get it. So the guy looks a little ragged and has an odd stare on his face, no real reason to freak out, geez. BTW, if you want to keep a civil discussion on this forum for as long as I'm involved with it, I would suggest that the word "shemale" isn't mentioned again in this context.
First of all, the "guy" looks a little more than ragged with a odd stare. No one is FREAKING out and going crazy, it's simply an observation. And why wouldn't it be civil to mention shemales in this context...? If someone thinks someone looks like a shemale, it is no different than someone thinking someone is Italian. No one here said "Ew, they look like a shemale, and you know about those shemales, no one likes them at all." It's simply not that, so why all the fuss about something you say you don't get in the first place?
The guy is everywhere! Spotted in BBspot's, 'Which Nigerian Spammer are You?'. Either this guy is a minor internet celebrity or he's just haunting me, either way it deserves a
Oh my gosh...Well, this is indeed a weird conspiracy.
Is he the next 'Star Wars Kid'?
It's a different photo to the one used on SmallDog's 'special' ad, which just makes it that much odder. There are multiple photos of this guy floating around?!
There's no doubt about it that this "man" is indeed...out of this world, But I have seen worse. What I am now trying to figure out is WHY Smalldog, such a nice little, dog-friendly, Mac selling company, decided to use this figure on one of their banners that is seen by millions....
I'm sure that if you poke around an archive like Getty you'll find him.
To see a similar phenomenon, go to the Inquirer's search page and look for "dell girl"
BTW, "shemale" is considered a derogatory term, and there was no mistaking its meaning given the way it was used. That's why it received a negative reaction.
he looks sort of like the lead singer of The Cure, Robert Smith.
