Seriously, that Sideshow ad with a shirtless 12" Barack Obama figure standing in front of the American flag is giving me the creeps. And who is that other guy in the background?

That guy in the background is Rahm, Rahmbo, dead fish Emanuel.

BTW, do NOT click on that link, lest you be exposed to a completely naked Obama figure!!!

Really, they should put a warning on that ad!!!:mad:

Too late, that's how I knew he was naked and not just shirtless. :(

Counseling...it may help.

What kind of a world do we live in where innocent children can click on a link at a "family friendly" website and be exposed to neked Presidents.:twisted:

I guess it's supposed to be their generic African-American 12" body. But I would have thought that, with Hispanics being the largest minority in America, Sideshow would also put out a generic Hispanic-American body.

Of course, if Sideshow wanted to choose a generic African-American face, then why not choose a model who is a "true" African-American and not half-Caucasian?

Why are you looking at a naked Barack Obama on a Star Wars toy site? Since you still haven't figured out how to use anti-ad software. :p

Well I never thought I needed it since I don't visit sites that use those kinds of ads. I definitely never thought I would need it for this site. Also, ads are what helps Steve pay the bills to keep this website up, so I figure I should give his sponsors the courtesy of at least looking at their ads. Occasionally I do see something that interests me. So far only one ad has completely disgusted me, so I thought I would make a thread about it. :p

At least he's not anatomically correct.

It's more about it being a shirtless President of the United States than an African-American. He's somebody that we're supposed to show at least a basic amount of respect to and there his face is being used to sell a naked doll body.

I don't really remember the Asajj cleavage, but that's probably because you see boobs pretty much everywhere you go these days. So I'm numb to stuff like that at this point. I definitely don't remember the Hulk ad, but I do remember the thread asking about it.

This is nothing.

To this day no one's explained to me why Hasbro wanted you to touch the Reek between his legs and the electronics makes him moan and spasm.

I haven't figured out that one since 2002!

Because he's magically boobalicious.

Perhaps he'll be a background character in the CW season 3. A B'Omorr Monk named B'Oma Rak?

That's classic. But actually seeing Press Secretary Gibbs' talking head in the jar would be even more accurate.

BB, are you asking why YOU are looking at a naked Barack Obama? I don't know why you'd want to look at that. I choose not to. :p

Because they can't distribute that one in Arizona.
