If you go to their page and click on "Company" two lower choices appear: About Us and TV Ads. There are five short spots to watch; one, "Beach" literally brought tears to my eye. A beautiful pale blonde is strolling the beach as these words scroll across the screen, "There are worse things than showing up to the beach looking pale & pasty. You could be really hairy too. Planet Tan. Feed your ego." Of course we go from seeing the beautiful blonde to seeing a big hairy man's chest.
Feed your melanoma would have been more accurate. But they made their point. And that "point" is at the end of a poisonous thorn.
I hate to give them press, but we really need to be aware of the lies these places are feeding, because people are still pulling up to their tables and feasting but instead of being pleasantly full they are pulling away from the table with, as my searcher has probably found, skin cancer. Possibly melanoma.
