Rumour has it this was a real print ad.
A white teenage boy is sitting at a counter or table, perhaps in a cafe or an old-fashioned 50s drugstore/diner. A pink milkshake sits on the counter in front of him. He is smiling and staring into the distance.
A blonde teenage girl with curly hair and makeup is sitting on his left, sucking on a chocolate milkshake and looking up at him adoringly.
There are blurry people in the background, perhaps other teenagers at other tables.
There is a red panel on the right of the ad, headlined
“BGS boys have mates… and dates.”
“Some people think that our boys won’t know how to interact with girls.
That’s not true.
Our learning programs are carefully designed to build each boy’s self confidence, especially through the awkward teenage years, allowing them to relate to each other, their teachers, and, on regular occasions… with girls.”
