Russian bank's weird bimbophobic ad #FdAdFriday
"Bimbophobia" is something I just made up. It's the fear and loathing many people feel for the Hiltons, Kardashians and Stoddens of the world.
It is essentially sexist in its nature, seeing rich and vain women as monumentally stupid (which a few may well be) but it also smells a bit like class conflict.
That said, the ad is mildly funny and surprisingly restrained by Russian ad standards.
