Pics or it didn’t happen.
Those are ads in the Montreal subway. I really have no idea what they’re advertising, except that it must be linked to some eyelash products, obviously.
Sounds like an ad. Every floor or area probably has some “cute” warning sign. : P
You’d have to be bloody unlucky to get your eyelashes caught in a train door. Unless they’re a foot long or something…
And that really is what it says.
It’s probably an advert for mascara.
Unless some manevolent bastard actually stood beyond the doors physically pulling on your lashes I don’t quite see how.
It’s actually part of some strange promotional campaign for Covergirl.
it’s from a mascara ad in the montreal subway, if you wondered…
clever way of getting people to stand back from the doors.
I doubt there are even fake eyelashes long enough, maybe someone with long hair might have to worry though.
Wouldn’t that get your nose before your eyelashes?
Tao beat me to it, but yeah, I confirm, those are “fake warning” ads for mascara that can currently be seen in Montréal’s subway cars.
For everybody who can’t read: how the hell did you get here?
For everybody who can read: check the comments above before questioning what the meaning of the thing is. Check them or this:
– It’s a French mascara commercial
– It’s properly translated and really says that
– It’s impossible for real or fake eyelashes to be long enough to stick out far enough to get stuck in doors.
– It’s a commercial, and the fact that it actually is impossible is what attracts your attention, which is what the people who made it intended.
This ad finally makes sense…
I wonder what this is for? Do you think the French translates to the English? I doubt my lashes are long enough to do this, but do you think someone’s could?
Now Phillip, relax, take a breath. That’s right. Deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth. Feel the relaxation pour over you as you realize people on the internet aren’t so much a part of your life you have to get all worked up over them.
Ahhh Montreal. ❤
e (and everyone else who shows up after this and asks the same damn questions) :
Yes, it really does say that. As other people have said, it’s a mascara ad posted in Montréal metro trains. There are matching adverts showing the product and everything. I guess it’s supposed to be cute or something.
I speak french. They obviously meant “Cylons”, not “cils long”. We all know Cylons get stuck in doors. “Cils long” doesn’t make sense.
If this is a mascara ad, what about Cialis or (penis enlarging device/drug) ads?
I roll my eyes everytime I have to see this in the metro…
I hope you are kidding lol
and for everyone else…. it’s suppose to be funny and to make people talk about their add, that’s a marketing technique xD
So everyone relax lol it’s just and add xD
This is part of an advertising campaign for a brand of mascara. These ads are in the metro cars in Montréal. When you step out of the car at certain stations, you are greeted with a large ad for the product. Stupid campaign, but it is getting people talking…
I seriously was questioning my sanity when I saw these ads. Now it all makes sense. Stupid ads.
They’re in Toronto too, although in english there. Just as lame in english.
I love Montreal for the random ads everwhere…
It’s a 3 part ad (at least in Toronto) with one to the left and to the right of the doors, and then above the doors is the actual advertisement (with the same ugly yellow).
looks fake since the bottom text doesnt line up with the top…
Did you at least take five seconds to think about the size of the text?
It’s a translation. You know, like a subtitle?
Can I have some of your milk speed? (If you didn’t get that reference, you need to be eaten)
This makes me glad I wear glasses.
Awwwww, the publicities in Montreal’s subway!! You have to love them! I mean, there’s this AND some of Nietzsche’s sayings in the same wagon… I don’t think it’s adressed to the same kind of person…
