Why won’t they show the billboard in the article?

I guess they are afraid of upsetting muslims.

So, what’s their message? With their product you can even sleep through her bomb vest going off?

Pathetic.

I do note she is wearing a wedding band. I guess this means she’s his property, and that should make it halal...

Sure it is as long as the soldier converts to Islam. SecDef Hagel did.

I guess the idea is that snoring keeps a couple apart - you know, kind of like a U.S. soldier and a woman in a burqa. I would say it’s dumb advertising, but it’s getting around the internet.

I'd like to see it written in Arabic with one of the following captions:

1.) "I hit it."

2.) Thanks for the women!

3.) Where all the Arab women at?

I was going to suggest it was his wife.

Folks should calm down. I don’t see anything “controversial,” and I also don’t see how this could possibly sell a product of any kind.

I’d be willing to wager that they are both models - the soldier is not in The Army, and the woman is not a regular burka clad female. Thank you.

You mean DCI Brennan, don't you?

If Hagel converted, we are in even deeper trouble than I thought.

From a marketing point of view, it is brilliant.

If gets attention, gets people wondering and talking, and it provides a social media hashtag to connect them.

And, oh...then there's the product (it gets a huge amount of customer ID).

Oops! you’re right. Thanks for the auto-correct. It’s hard keeping up with which 0bama stooge is associated with which radical group. I don’t think we could be in much deeper trouble than we are now though.
