Forgive me for mentioning something non-BBC, but has anyone seen a more spectacular own goal than the Guardian’s unintentionally truthful advertising campaign?
“The Whole Picture” goes the slogan.
Everyone knows that the real Little Pigs were acting in self defence when they tricked the wolf into coming down the chimney and landing in the boiling water.
The ad boasts that the Guardian is ‘telling the whole story,’ when they’re so not.
They’ve twisted it, portraying the perpetrator as the innocent party, and blaming the victim!
Many a true word is spoken in jest.
I wonder when someone will point out that the message is not so much ‘we paint the Whole picture’; it’s much more ‘we paint the Wrong picture’?
Oh, I’ve just done done it, by the hairs on my chinny chin chin.
