    I'm glad RJ has advertisers to support this awesome site, but to me it seems that the bombardment of ads for Hanes Underwear at Macy's seems like a bad match for a gay, athletic audience. I don't often see men on here posing in their Hanes. Thoughts?

    Not me but it got me thinking.
    A month ago everyone was saying what a successful ad the below was.
    Did anyone prove the pudding by actually buying any Kraft since then?

    I strongly prefer Calvin Klein over Hanes.

    The company is going for Name recognition
    Zesty ... Kraft should probably undergo a logo change for better recognition

    Although I have ad block and do not see the ads, you do know that with google ads not everyone is seeing the same ads here?

    I see Macy's ads all the time on here and I never shop at Macy's. Bad targeting!

    Are Hanes underwear at Macy's different than Hanes underwear at Target?

    Ads are pretty much lost on me.
    I block them out.

    The ads I see here are for "Hanes Platinum" which is probably different than Target, but it's still Hanes!
