I would guess someone with a sick sense of humor, a pedo, someone with a grudge against Breyer's or a combination of the preceding.

Having done a google search, I turn up several pages, wll with similar text from Adrants. However, the original Adrants page from April 4, is already missing, existing only in the Google cache. It's interesting that the Adrants write up, includes notes on text that is absent from the version of the ad presented here. The missing text makes this seem way more pedo-friendly, if that's possible.

There is a slightly different version on
http://www.lolitron.org/2006/04/02/luscious-lickable-lolis/
That has extra text including "young feminine gymnists who are eagerly busting their fresh asses to make every American proud". It also has a supposed response from Breyers near the bottom of the page claiming its indeed a fake.

It's not real. The 2 main clues (besides it being disgusting) are;
1- the use of non-American spellings in what is supposed to be an American ad. 'flavour' instead of flavor and 'sherbert' instead of sherbet.

2- The names of the 2 gymnasts are not affiliated with American gymnastics at all.

I'm so relieved that I'm merely offended instead of disgusted.

And for the Active Topic readers, I'll repeat what Tim said: NSFW!

not for a second:)
the dead give away was the use of sherbert instead of sherbet, which is a pet peeve of mine. i yell at my husband all the time for adding the extra r.

(bert and ernie are watching tv, bert asks if ernie wants some ice cream, he goes sherbert!haha. not very funny but still reminded me of that joke.)

After some googling, I found this:

Molly Givens That has to be the same girl.

I wasn't able to find Betta Sanders in anything other than this pic. Hmmmm.

Looks certainly are similar but I wouldn't say it has to be her.

Really weird that the model's real name would be stuck in there. Perhaps the maker of the ad picked up the photo from a site with her pics and didn't think to use a bit of discretion. Then again with both girls in the photo not sure what the chances of that are.

I wouldn't exactly expect discretion from whoever made this ad.

Agreed- I'd expect a little bit though. Probably too much to ask.

FWIW I emailed Advantage Modeling to see if they could shed any light on it. I'll post back if they respond.

ETA: They responded wanting me to send the photo. I sent a link instead- felt icky enough just doing that. [Eek!]

EATA: According to Advantage- "Although the ad says Molly Givens, gymnast, which it may well be. It is not the same girl that is on the agency site."
