Ask not what you can buy for your country...

Certain categories of advertising always suck: Razors (see previous rants). Any pharmaceutical product. And watches. Especially watches.

I'm not sure how you legally get to use an ex-President to hawk your expensive timepiece (by plugging the JFK Library at bottom left??), but Omega decided to go for it. Kennedy is not wearing/did not wear this brand of watch, but apparently the astronauts who went to the moon did.

Just what an astronaut needs on the moon: a watch! Would that be on the inside or the outside of your spacesuit?

So two thumbs down to Omega for this lame-ass "commerative" ad. You have no concept and you have no taste.
