Apparently, this is phase one of the campaign with the next step showing the cast in sexy poses.
Whether intentionally or not, The CW has created quite a stir in the blogosphere (hat tip to dlisted).
Advocating people deliberately get a sexually transmitted infection cannot be what they mean, right?
I know that I thought "venereal disease" when I saw this ad. And I also know I'm not alone. However, The CW thinks otherwise.
This is their statement in response to the controversy: "VD simply stands for Vampire Diaries, and anyone who thinks otherwise should probably get themselves checked out."
I admit that, despite my obsession with all things vampires, I have not seen The Vampire Diaries. I guess I'll have to check it out.
