I've recently seen a new TH ad which, instead of touting the wonders of their doughnuts or edible bowls, tries to encourage people to seek employment there. the interesting thing is they also seem to have changed their uniforms.<P>The primary diference is in the hats, the female semi hat things are beige with most of the upper section being black. The logo is in white. The male hat is beige with a black crown and logo.<P>------------------

hey, that leaves me oddly inspired.<P>I can see it now....<P>there she is... on a bed, wearing nothing but her little Timmy's hat. White silky sheets flow smoothly on either side of her. She's completely content to just lay there in the nude and bask in the soft light. And of course... a small spreckled trail of icing sugar from her belly-button to the spot right between her breasts. The caption would be something like:<P>"At Tim Horton's, you get to fill more than just Jelly Donuts"<P>hehehe.<P>[edits: buncha crap I missed the first time]<p>[This message has been edited by saturn (edited 11-05-2001).]

Maybe they can get Josh to draw up a scantily clad Deidre as an advertisement. Sure, she's fictional, but I'm willing to bet that somebody would apply because of it.<P>Maybe she can be the flagship ad character.<P>Deidre: "Coffee? Tea? Me?" <P>I dunno. I think I'm just brain damaged.<P>------------------

"Tim Horton's- Not Just Donuts anymore"<P>Heh!<P>The hat, an apron, and a coy smile; nothing else. Pointing out at the viewer:
"Tim Horton needs YOU!"

Jeez. <P>I thought I was perverted. Now I'm picturing Ryan as the mascot for all those Big johnson shirts. Thanks folks. I'll be carrying that around in my head all day.

Here's a rough idea of the change based on the bits of Ad I've seen.

Hmm. Anyone followed through on that idea? Or will us Timmy's fans just drool on forever?

I doubt that Tim Horton's will use sex to sell doughnuts, but I think that using Diedre in advertisments would be beneficial to both TH and Avalon. I just love it when a plan comes together.

No, I mean sketching the concept, not using the concept to sell doughnuts.

Of course, you could always use the concept to sketch doughnuts. But I just want to see a sketch of DD in just a Timmy's visor.

How come the male workers get a hat with a crown on it?? I would feel seriously jipped if I worked there.

I'm not sure I'd find donuts very sexy either. And I don't quite swing that way as far as females are concerned. At all.

Yup. Like men better. But please don't consider this as a plea for any of the male characters to be paired with donuts. please.

Sure, but what about all those poor, suffering DD fans who haven't had any PSL sketches for oh-so-long? [Okay, maybe not so long, but...]

Somebody sketch this!

... somebody with skills, I mean.

Oh yuck. *Gag* Thanks Harlenna, a vision has been burned into my feeble brain because of that comment.

They even have the handy donut holder.

Donuts have holes for a reason, y'know.

My sincerest apologies Hortmage. I would not have said a damn thing if I hadn't been schooled in the mindset of preventative measures. It has been my experience that if I don't say I DON'T want someone to go there then they invariable do.....whether in some weird way to please me or some twisted way to make me twitch. So usually if I innocently left my comment as is then someone would jump in on the dirty innuendo waiting to happen. So again, my apologies.

lastly, the "tapped her keys thusly" was very cool. Just a nifty tidbit.

*gives Hortmage a big eraser to use on his mind* "Maybe this will help?" *looks hopeful*

Hee Hee! No need to apologize! It's not your fault that I've got a dirty mind! Although a bar of soap would have been better than an eraser....

And certainly much more comfy than the crowbar of common decency.... :wink:

Thank you. I'm sure someone can or will recolour it for you, if that's what you want.

But it's still a sweet sketch.
