Woman tied up in pickup screen shotHave you seen this? Thank God, it’s not an actual woman tied up in the back of a pick-up truck, it’s an ad for a company in Waco, Texas that makes decals for trucks. They thought it would be a good move to make a super realistic decal depicting a woman tied up in the back of a pickup truck. According to Business Insider it was intended to be an experiment to show off the company’s decal-making capabilities. Instead, some people are making 911 calls, thinking the image is real.

The “lifelike”decal is the work of Hornet Signs, a Waco marketing and advertising company business owned by Brad Kolb. Kolb told KWTX that his business has received “an influx in tailgate decal orders since the sticker has hit the streets a month ago.

“I wasn’t expecting the reactions we got, nor do we condone this by any means,” Kolb added. But apparently he condones it enough to use an image of violence against women to represent his business. A female company employee even posed for it!

Kolb said it was something he wanted to “put out there, to see who notices it.”

Well guess what, people are noticing and wondering if it is horse manure or fertilizer that has seeped into your head. I cannot even imagine what kind of decals he might come up with for a real estate company!
