desired destination?

I don’t get this ad.

Is this supposed to make me want to go there?

It’s a naked woman in a cage.

First of all, she’s way prettier than I am, which means my husband will be looking at her instead of me.

Secondly, she’s in a cage.

I’d rather see the amenities, the beach, maybe a picture or two of the cabana boys.

Check this out. That’s WAY better

    She’s in no cage, half of it is open. She’s just hanging out (LOL!).

    I suppose it’s meant to entice young, sexy couples to go there. It’s one of those hanging chairs — they look interesting, but are not very comfortable, and even if you are tiny no way two people could get in there — which would seem to be the point of her come hither look, don’t you think?

    I guess I’m past the age (and weight) of thinking an advertisement like this is anything but sexist and annoying. I know, it sucks to be uncool, but there you go.

    Much prefer your alternative advertisement — right now all I need see is a picture of sun/sand and I desperately want to be there, given the weather in the NYC area.
