Sorry Urban Outfitters! Your “Eat Less” shirts are nothing but salty dust compared to the new posters from Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps, which declare “You Can Never Be Too Thin!” At this point, we don’t even think the Snack Factory even tried to hide it’s size-ist slogan, and is basically inviting controversy just to bring more attention to their ads. Fair enough. After all, for every pro-plus-size advocate, there are statistics that show just how morbidly obese Americans have become, which is why “Eat Less,” as a campaign idea, not a tee, may have worked.
But “You Can Never Be Too Thin?” That’s just blatantly untrue, whether you are talking about pretzels (Um, really, really thin pretzels sound like a stupid snack) or Karen Carpenter.
But what do you think? Does this ad (or the product itself) leave a bitter taste in your mouth?
