Company Reconsiders 'Hells Angels Are Pussies' Ad

Last month we told you about this brilliant, cutting-edge, edgy, ahead of the edge, razor's edge ad out of France for some "unbreakable" eyeglass frames. We gently noted that every last bit of information about who made the ad and where they would be during business hours every day was easily accessible online, should the Hells Angels be interested in those facts. Not that they would, what with their legendary sense of humor!

Well, for some reason, the ad agency in question has now emailed Copyranter, the blogger who originally posted the ad, saying that "in order to avoid any potential troubles with the Hell's Angels organization in the USA," the client, Essilor, is "asking to withdraw" the ad, and could he please, pretty please, take it down?

"No," replied Copyranter.

Let this be a lesson to many people, about many things.
