Magazines Should Not Do This


Today’s Yikes! Award goes to Glamour Magazine, for whose most recent issue they slapped Olivia Wilde on the cover. NBD, right? Well, here’s where the Yikes! comes in: it’s an issue about “secrets,” which is, like…okay, Glamour. You’re kind of freaking us out right now.

But then they go ahead and make a creepy video in which a 2-D Olivia Wilde comes to life, but is somehow stuck in her “sexy pirate” pose, albeit with the opportunity to — what else? — sexily “shush” you because that’s a big ol’ sexy thaaang that girls do, isn’t it? Isn’t that how you lure in readers? To magazines? For women? In 2011?

On three:  one, two, three, YIKES!
