What do they have to gain by running commercials suggesting that "slinging" is a form of sexual activity? Thumbs Down

What I'm wondering where/how/why they came up with such an f'd up sounding name to begin with.

Makes me think of having an injured arm in a sling.

Or slingng hash at a cheap diner.

Stupid name.

Sounds cheap-ass.

Slinging is how you pass some cheap-o crap from one person to another.

"Hey, sling some of that slop over this way!!!"

There is absolutely 110% nothing cute by "Slinging" whatsoever. They got rid of that tattooed asshole which was a plus along with that whiney bitch at the coffee place. But then they bring this crap to the table. And then to fall in line with making guys ditsy as hell, the guy actually thinks they mean swinging. Ugh, I could just bang my head against the wall having so much stupid thrown at me.

ShockedDanny Trejo doesn't take kindly to being referred to in that manner. Better watch out - Robert De Niro found out the hard way.

Seems as if many ad makers know only two formulas: 1) treating viewers as kids of the short-bus set, or 2) appealing to crude sexuality.

What would call the creators of these "slinging" adverts if they ate the above product? Cannibals!
I keep encountering 3rd graders who sound smarter than most ad writers.

Afaic, Danny Trejo is just another ethno-gimmick who I'm sick and tired of seeing too much of.
