One small step?

There are a lot of reasons to hate the "Girls Gone Wild" phenomenon, which does for young women what Birth of a Nation did for black people. My personal reason to hate it is that the ads always air during the Daily Show and the Colbert Report. It's depressing to think that the smartest, most progressive programming block on cable television has to be brought to us by porn. Moreover, there's the irritating assumption that the TDS/Colbert demographic, us college age 18 to 34 year old types with disposable income (the "us" doesn't really apply to me on that last part) has a significant crossover with the GGW demographic, which plays into the media's idiotic "stoners who don't really know anything about current events" meme for Daily Show fans.

But I digress...My point is actually that I noticed a new Girls Gone Wild spot last night. I wasn't really paying attention to it, but I did notice that the GGW are trying to do other things than take off their shirts and soap each other. They're skydiving. And apparently flying around in rocket ships...?

See, if there was an entire installment of "Girls Gone Wild in Outer Space" I might buy that. Or pretty much anything about outer space because outer space rules.

Rory, on the one hand, I suppose your assertion regarding the utter vapidness of the GGW ads and the incongruity of airing them during shows that typically appeal to a demographic composed of people with above-average intelligence is correct as far as it goes. On the other hand, hey, check out the titties on that one. Yowza.
Watching Girls Gone Wild.

Heh heh heh.
