Alabama-based chain apologizes for ad featuring scantily-clad, costumed women
An Alabama-based chain of tanning salons is offering a deal to get the “sexy color” of Native Americans this Thanksgiving.
“The Indians brought more than just ‘CORN’ to the first Thanksgiving,” reads the ad from Club Sun Color Studios, “they brought SEXY ‘COLOR’!”
The ad, first reported by Jezebel on Wednesday, shows a well-tanned brunette in a Native American costume — complete with fringed stilettos — standing next to a fair-skinned blonde in a Pilgrim dress.
“Instant, flawless sunless sprays for as low as … $7.99!”
By Wednesday night, the ad had disappeared from both the company’s website and Facebook page.
Club Sun’s marketing director David Arnett later posted an apology.
