The girl with something extra

This is apparently the new spokesfigure for an electronics retailer in Russia:

Media Markt indicia

MediaMarkt, based in Germany, has a talent for coming up with stuff like this: their German Web storefront bears the slogan “Ich bin doch nicht blöd” — “I am not stupid.”

Not being all that dumb myself, I totally recall at least one character like this before. And Copyranter, who turned up several images from this campaign, offers this translation, for which I am unable to vouch: “You will find more than you expect.” I figure that corrections and/or emendations are just a matter of time.

Eccentrica Gallumbits, meanwhile, was not available for comment.

    If electronics were a thing thought to appeal specifically to females….well, I’d be afraid what the appeal-to-straight-women version of that spokeswoman would be.

    Question: would a man be more turned on or weirded out by a third mammary?

    I suspect most would be squicked out, though you may be assured that a certain number would be utterly delighted with the prospect. (Rule 34 would seem to support this premise.)

    That said, some of the latter group, were they presented with the genuine article, as distinguished from mere fanfiction and photo manips, might well flee in terror.

    The way the usual two get upsized these days, I’m mainly puzzled at where anybody would put a third one.

    This store is geographically located near Chernobyl, I suspect.

    Or Springfield.

    The translation is close; more precisely, it should read: “We have more than you expect to find”, or “”Here you’ll find more than expected”.
    Slogan on the other one is actually not bad, laughter-wise: “Achtung! Unbelievable woman of gigantic beauty! Click on the link and she’ll appear. Seriously.”
