Pattern Matching

Story on - Racy 'Gilligan' ad draws protest - Jun 10, 2005:

    LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- With the aftertaste still lingering from Paris Hilton's hamburger commercial, there's new beef over a racy ad from TBS.

    A titillating TV spot promoting the cable network's second season of reality series "The Real Gilligan's Island" has become a lightning rod online, where clips of the commercial on are being linked on countless blogs, some of which blast the ad. (TBS is a division of Time Warner, as is CNN.)


    "That ad is a visual signal, shorthand for a whole world of issues that women have to struggle against every day," read one post on a leading liberal-minded blog called, by a writer who identified herself as Nixie Knox.


But, here's the part I liked, the four ads on the right side: "ERICO - ERITECH Lightning Rods", "Lightning Rods at", "Professional Lightning Rod Installation", "Hamilton Lightning Rod Systems".
