FLASHBACK: What the fuck, Jenny McCarthy???!

If you’re like me, you’re a child of the 90s.

Being a child of the 90s, means that I spent way too much time reading Seventeen magazine, wearing oversized hats and denim shirts and oogling Candies shoes.

Candies shoes…

I remember being a teenager and seeing this ad in print and wondering what fucking stupid ass ad exec said to himself, “you know what will sell shoes??? Jenny McCarthy on a toilet!!!”

I never bought a pair of Candies shoes in protest of this ad.

I kinda feel bad badmouthing her here for life choices she’s made because of all her work with Autism Speaks… but this is also part of the reason I decided to stay the hell away from Hollywood. Once you get yourself involved with something like this ad, you can’t go back.

Ever.

So Jenny, I think it’s great that you’ve raised so much awareness in your work but yeah… you can’t escape your roots: a horrible MTV dating show and this Candies shoes ad.
