The Vibrancy Shall Continue Until Morale Improves

The reader who took the shot explains,

This is part of a recruitment campaign for a software company in Boston called Vecna.  The ads are featured on the train which runs through Harvard Square and Mass General Hospital.  This gem features a red headed beta male father bringing his swarthy son (adopted, cuckolded, or mixed marriage?) to a female doctor of an ambiguous racial background.  Both the redheaded father and ambiguous brown doctor have asian shaped eyes.  The Doctor is saying “Vecna software allows me to build relationships with my patients, not my computer.”  To add to the diversity clusterfuck, there is a Spanish warning sign above the poster.

The ad’s artistic sensibility could be partly influenced by this generation’s infantile compulsion to recreate people as anime characters.

    1. She’ll change her opinion once she becomes a single mom, an STD vector, or a domestic violence statistic, but I repeat myself. By then it will be too late, and the schadenfreude will be *glorious*.

  1. this one sucks. if it needs such a long explanation it’s a terrible choice. it’s also this dude’s interpretation of a goddamn drawing. it’s not even real. that reader could spend all day on tumblr finding stupid cartoons. (plus it’s blurry.)

    1. Context is everything. This is not just a drawing, it is a well funded ad campaign by a thought leader in the thought-leaderiest of cities in New Rome.

    Ironically, non-Whites (including East Asians) are almost unheard of in anime.

  3. For what it’s worth, that Emergencia yada yada situado al extremo del tren sign has been here for years. I remember it back from high school circa 2004. Not sure when it began but it’s not a new sign of multiculturalism.
