Pinterest's new ad has a completely different meaning here in Ireland

Yeah, that doesn’t vibe here.

REMEMBER THAT TIME Pat Kenny dedicated an entire segment on his radio programme to a butter-like product known as ghee?

And remember how the nation lost its mind as Pat was schooled on the finer details of ghee by what we presume was some kind of of ghee-expert?

There was ghee this and ghee that, and Christ Almighty if we didn’t all expire with the mortification of it all.

Well, prepare for the latest installment in the saga, which comes in the form of a Pinterest ad.


The 30-second ad, which highlights just how handy Pinterest can be when you’re planning on switching up your style, ticks along nicely until the 26th second.

And then we get hit with the gee bomb.

Gee Barber? GEE Barber? Oh, the potential innuendos are endless.

But we’re a classy joint, so we’ll say no more about them.

Sure look, here’s the ad in its entirety.
