The New York Lottery promises good things(?)

So the New York Lottery has a new ad campaign for their instant win scratch-off tickets called “Good things can happen in an instant.”

Good things….like nude ladies, apparently!

So, nude conventionally attractive white ladies are things.  Good things.  But still things. Got it.

What’s more, they can now happen instantly, which is a major technological breakthrough in the lady-delivery industry.

Who has time for all that getting-to-know-you, relationship-building, name-learning ?  When I am sitting all by myself, eating popcorn in a deserted movie theater, I want my ladies nude and I want them now!

Is this just another ‘ladies as things’ ad, or does it go so far as to imply that money actually can buy you love (for a given value of “love”)?

Are lonesome, dweeby types who daydream about instantaneous naked women being told that loads of cash are the only way that lady is ever going to smile at you?

I have a suggestion, New York Lottery. Stick with the cute baby bunnies, ’cause your instant win campaign is full of fail.
