D.C. Metro Ad Thinks Ladies Just Want To Talk About Shoes

Don't you just hate it when you try to chat with a friend about the transit system, but all her lady-brain can focus on is shoes?

The D.C. Metro understands your pain. Which is why they used this apparently relatable scenario on a poster for their Metro Forward campaign, prominently displayed at the Washington D.C. Metro Center subway station. Journalism student Lucy Westcott spotted the image on her daily commute:

A representative from the D.C. Metro told DCist: "The point of the ad is to get people talking about Metro's massive rebuilding effort by juxtaposing technical facts with a variety of light responses in conversation between friends."

We might have more to say about this if we weren't so busy deciding between heels and flats.
