Said Harvey Nichol's spokesperson Julia Bowe, "In humorous reaction to the (often-irrational) excitement sale time engenders, we have developed this campaign to capture this near-fanatical spirit, because let's face it, the thought of picking up brands at up to 70% off is enough to excite and overwhelm the most composed shopper in us all."
Not everyone is taking the joke well, though, with lots of Twitter fans slamming the department store for its crass taste. To be fair, Harvey Nichols has always pushed the envelope when it comes to their sale fliers (past ads have featured women with bruises in the shapes of a stiletto soles and ladies doing the walk of shame in party dresses).
Our thoughts? HAHAHAHHAHAA. Though we can be pretty put-together when we need to be, everyone — including fashion folk — can enjoy a little potty humor. (Daily Mail)
