    Just posting up the LG Secret ad that I saw the other day. One of the most creepy ad I have seen in a long time. But it will help it sell the phone to young teenage men who would buy into the whole ad.

    No, they won't buy the phone, they'll buy the 3G iPhone Black/White, then download it via the youtube app and share it with their friends! :p

    Wow...

    That was one of the creepiest commercials I have ever seen. There is no way they are actually going to air that thing, is there?

    I would love to meet the person at LG's ad agency that came up with this idea...

    Wow. That's...

    uhm...wow.

    It's one thing to simulate the rubbing of her [very sensitive body part]. I mean, that's outrageous enough, but I can get over that.

    But it's quite another to show a rape fantasy AND to end it with the girl liking it! Yeah...wanna be a creepy stalker who assults women in their sleep? No problem...when they wake up, they'll be into it!

    Seriously. What. The. Hell.

    I'm glad it wasn't just me that thought this should never get to market! Just short of pornography theater, it should be banned from television, at least here in the USA. What were these guys thinking? :eek:

    There is something seriously wrong with that ad. Very wrong.

    Why is everyone referring to this person as if she's underage?

    Make an ad that only appeals to Voyeurs, and Voyeurs will be the ones to buy the product...

    Nice going, LG.... I assume no parental controls on this one.... :eek:

    Man, this ad STILL creeps me out a day later. I've watched it 276 times now, and I get chills every time!

    lol..

    While I have to admit it's a corny ad, it's not offensive, rather stupid, if anything.

    For those in the US, please remember other places in the world have different standards and expression.

    Take this one for example.

    So that's why people need a better camera on the iPhone.
