MannequinsplatterApparently there are limits to bad taste, although who knows what defines them. A window dresser for the famous Barney’s crossed the line with ‘blood’ splattered glass and panicked mannequins. Seems like a ‘crime’ theme shows up in their promo now and then. A Wikipedia entry states that, in the 1930s, Barney Pressman, one of the first businesses to advertise on radio,¬† had a spot that parodied the intro to the Dick Tracy show.
