Pentax marketing mistake :0

I didn't take this picture, found it somewhere else online. Interesting new direction pentax marketing is taking.



Edit: not sure if this belongs in news and rumors, if a mod wants to move it somewhere more appropriate .

That's what happens you get English-as-a-second-language speakers preparing ads. Any native English speaker would have realised that the last sentence was supposed to read:

Powered by Lithium batteries so you'll always be really in the shit.

Lulz. English is a tricky language. Heaven help those whose parents don't speak it.

Pentax Marketing is an oxymoron in the first place, perhaps the use of the word 'shit' was a Freudian slip.

This is actually an ad from a catalogue down here in Australia. I saw it a few months ago in a fine publication named Zoo Weekly.

Very amusing.
I always needed the tougher 9V batteries to run my anus effectively.
Then again, mine doesn't have AF function.

"AF" meaning Auto-Flush? If so, do you have to use MF?

I sometime use AF but I'm finding the outcome is a bit soft. I'm not sure if it's a BF/FF issue. It's been a real stinker to fix.

I can't for the life of me figure out what it meant to say.

"Be ready for a...... what?"
