Where are the cute models? Can't sell cameras (or much of anything else) without cute models.
Female I presume?

Did I say, "Can't sell stuff without underdressed female humans?" Nope. It rather depends on the target audience. Those cute models might be of any gender, age, or species, depending on whose buttons are to be pushed.

Now you've done it. Expect to see lots of Pentax ads featuring squirrels...

I was visualizing something more like kittens and puppies. Or chimpanzees. Hmmm, what target audience is aroused by squirrels? No, don't tell me, I DON'T WANT TO KNOW!!

This ad might work in the 70's or early 80's, but now is 2011. Surely the marketing people are smarter than this, if they have any actual marketing department at all.

Somehow I don't envisage these tree rats as a Pentax demographic. Consider: squirrels are aggressive, profane, vicious, thieving, screaming little f*cktards. In other words, they're Canon fanbois.

Lol! I suppose then the Nikonians are the chipmunks that chatter incessantly but don't have anything to show for it.
