We sell big knockers!

Posted on: July 31, 2010

It’s a catchy line, no?! You’ve got to admit that it caught your attention! That was the idea behind the ad campain for Tricketts, a door and window company in Wales that used that slogan with the picture of a topless woman discreetly covered by a pair of door knockers!!!
 
“We sell big knockers…..Window Hinges, Door Handles, Window Handles …”
 
I love it!
 
Well, one pruny lady didn’t think it was so funny and complained to the Advertising Standards Agency, saying that she found the poster offensive… So Tricketts had to pull their ad… after 2 months of it being on display and many thinking it was quite humourous! Boooo to the lady that complained! I understand where she is coming from & what she sees as offensive, but it’s just funny — a good play on words! She was probably that upset because she has small knockers 😉 hahaha
