Quote of the Day

"We were taken aback a little bit by a vocal minority. It was something we didn't anticipate. But this is a people-focused company, so we had to respond to those concerns."—David Droga, creative chairman at Droga5, who created the "Shiny Suds" Method advert. (Via.)

I am bitterly amused by the assertion that a "people-focused" company couldn't foresee any objection to the sexual assault of a person woman being treated like a joke to sell cleaning products.
