The Hidden Faces of Club Med

POST #    2026

Shannan spotted these faces in some Club Med ads on the G Train the other day. There were about five ads, but we only saw faces in two. Even the faces are all happy in the blue and green water, I can't help but feel they are a little creepy looking. Maybe the good folks at Club Med think New Yorkers need some happy faces in the water of their subway advertisements. Although, in the lower left of the 2nd photo, there is what seems to be like another, not so happy face.

I suppose the question is whether these ads are subliminal at all as they almost look too obvious to be so. I wonder if the MTA picked up on these at all when they were looking at the ads.

i agree, definitely creepy. so is the windsurfer her tongue, or is she spitting it out?

Totally freaky. Is that legal? I guess it isn't harming anyone, but it certainly would scare the crap out of me.

I saw those ads..and kinda said "AHH!" when I noticed the faces..creeped me out a bit..if the ad was of the Jersey shore it would be a big red devil laughing at me for swimming in that water.

So... are the faces really in the water, and in the golf course, or is there false advertising going on.
