That said, I find that whole advertising campaign tacky beyond belief.
As for attire, if I am going to a funeral I will wear a suit. Going to the cemetery to visit a grave? I will wear jeans and a t-shirt. But then again, with my family the person who passed away would be mad you spent the time to get all dressed up to visit their grave.
We aren't sophisticated folk .
When I die, I want people to look at me and say "Yeah, he might have been crazy, but that was one zarkin frood that knew where his towel was."
That is sort of creepy. Obviously, they're trying to get you to look at the ad in the first place with the bare legs. Then you'll think, hey, maybe if I die, sexy young girls will come to cry on my grave. But then by the content of the ad, that's supposed to my daughter. So, yeah, sort of creepy.
I think you are missing the point.
Since you died, but did not subscribe to whatever that ad is soliciting, there is no one to take care of your family.
So they do not have money to buy clothes. Ergo she is wearing shorts (probably made from old jeans with the legs cut off). Sort of recycling you know

I'd also note that the girl is in the suggestive position. So, yes, there different angles in play here: pedophilia, necrophilia, and incest. I did some research, and found out that AccuQuote committed a significant amount of money into investigating what type of advertising content attracts the customers. Apparently, it's sex in all its variants. But we knew this already, didn't we?
To me it looks more like she got too dunk and is being sick, more than the sexual stuff. Tacky regardless. My least favorite these days are the ones that say things like "Obama wants dads to go back to school".
Good point. I'm sure there are scores of 12 year-old widows out there, and all because all the little Tylers, Taylors, and Aidens waste their money on comics and video games instead of investing in a decent life insurance policy. They never pause to reflect that they are ever one wedgie away from oblivion, and destitution for little Caitlin, BritNee, or Madyson. Selfish prigs.
It might just be a bad picture though. She could actually be as old as 15.
Wow you guys are so mean. I think the ad is targeted towards men and its trying to get men to wonder and worry about what would happen to their hot girlfriend or wife or daughter if they passed away. You are leaving her open to being taken advantage of by another man who may want your hot gf/widow now that you are out of the picture and all because you failed to leave her without financial support so now she has no choice but to depend on another man. The man your girlfriend/widow attracts into her life may very well be a sleazebag because if you got dirty thoughts when you saw this girl whats to say other men won't?
