Marketing to stalkers

Apparently LG is trying to appeal to dudes who like to use their cellphone as a stalking device. (How convenient! A phone for men who don’t want to bother with Maxim’s DIY stalker tips.) Engaget calls this ad “creepy” and “early-90s softcore voodoo porn.” I say it’s stalkerrific:

Ugh. Hey, buddy! That’s your mom calling to remind you that stalking is illegal. Real women don’t appreciate strange dudes standing outside their window and recording them on a cameraphone.
