Do These Peculiar Evian Ads Featuring Adults in Shirts with Headless Babies Make You Thirsty? (PHOTOS)Meredith Carroll
My husband often remarked when both of our daughters were tiny babies who lived in little else but onesies that he wished they were available in adult sizes.
“They’re like the perfect article of clothing,” he always said.
I’m not sure if it’s because the girls looked so cozy in onesies or, as far as clothes go, they’re just so convenient, kind of like the wardrobe equivalent of a TV dinner — an entire outfit all in one.
Evian seems to have kind of seized on the idea of adults in onesies as part of a campaign to get people to drink the designer water in an effort to “live young.”
While the ads are certainly interesting — they feature adults wearing shirts that have baby bodies starting at the neck on down, not in onesies, per se, but kind of the same idea, I think — I’m not 100 percent sure that the sight of infantalized adults makes me thirsty or want to “live young” or in a onesie (or in a shirt that has a headless baby on it, for that matter).
