Annoying J. Crew Model of the Week - 7/23/12

Well spank my ass and call me Sally, it's time for another installment of

The Annoying J. Crew Model of the Week

This week I wanted to features some annoying images I found on the J. Crew website (not difficult to find those).  I've always  hated the way that clothiers--especially companies that try too hard to be shi-shi and trendy, like J. Crew--use kids, attempting to make them hip, mature, and cute all at the same time.  This latest marketing on the part of J. Crew only underscores my disdain:


The above two images are supposed to be cute and dynamic.  They make me want to shove forks into my eyeballs.  

What the hell is so intriguing about her hair?

If my kid displayed this kind of facial expression, I'd have him committed.  Apparently, he's wearing that bag (?) on his noggin to cover up the fact that he was dropped on his head at an early age.


Of all the kid images on the recent J. Crew website, these two are the most tragic.  In addition to the lame attempt to write copy--"Tee Time"? "Junior Gent"?  People are getting paid for this?!--this kid is just beyond annoying.  I don't blame the little boy here--he's just a kid, probably fulfilling his sick parents' desires to live vicariously through the modeling work of their child--but the executives in charge of this shoot.  I doesn't make me want to buy these clothes for my kid to wear.  It makes me want to buy the clothes so that I can urinate on them.

Just one man's opinion...
