dear american apparel,
please stop with your ads already. they make me profoundly uncomfortable in a way i am unable to articulate properly which just adds to the discomfort. at their best they're ugly and at their worst they bring to mind the sort of second rate porn from third world countries where the end result, rather than arousal, is pity. your clothes are poorly made, unforgivably unattractive, deeply unflattering and let me tell you, if i want to see "real" people in tight ugly clothes, why, i can just go to wal-mart, or, in a pinch, strip down to my plain jane underwear, strike an awkward pose, make a "don't give a fuck" face and look in the mirror - yes, i realise i am not 21 and an aspiring mime in new york city, but it'll be close enough.
please and thank you,
p.s. obviously, i'm not the only one who feels this way. sorry to be obvious, but something about ironic hipster nipples in my face first thing in the morning just threw me off.
