Hey Unichef, you bring up an interesting point about the use of models. First of all for the record, it is not me. Anyone who knows me could tell you that if it were me there would be a heavy 5 o'clock shadow and then some. This guy looks like if he touched a hot saute pan he would take off screaming.
The point I would like to bring up though is that it is interesting that many do not find this ad appealing. The Date council is trying to promote the use of California Dates among chefs, and I would guess that they have no idea that their banner ad was actually bothering some chefs. If you ask me they would of been much better of if they could of used a celebrity chef.
Just some thoughts.
