“People Will Talk”

The double-page ad below appeared in this week's New Yorker and is getting lots of attention from blogs.

The model in the ad is transgender queen Amanda Lepore. According to Adrants she "had her first cosmetic surgery at age 15, decided to have a sex change in high school, led a failed suburban housewife life and then hit New York for fame and fortune." You can check out her website (in places NSFW).

The ad definitely makes you look, but would it make you buy a Jawbone Bluetooth headset?

I hate to sound mean, but I kind of assumed she was once a guy. She has a mannish face. I didn't see the Bluetooth, either. I just assumed it was about plastic surgery somehow.

Just what I want: My surgeon yapping on his Bluetooth while operating. Notice the surgical mask draped around his neck.
