Experience News in a New Way
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a Secret Service agent? Well, thanks to Spirit Airlines, you can live the life for less than 20 bucks.
The airline, known for its outlandish advertisements, is taking a stab Secret Service agents accused of getting a little secret service of their own while protecting the president on a recent trip to Cartagena, Colombia.
Several Secret Service agents have been stripped of their “top secret” clearance following allegations that they hired Colombian prostitutes while on assignment in Cartagena. The advertisement by Spirit Airlines features a man dressed in Secret Service attire surrounded by several bikini-clad cuties accompanying the special “more bang for your buck,” offering discount travel to the Colombian city.
The ad also declares “upfront payment is required,” taking a poke at complaints by those alleged prostitutes who claim they were — uh — stiffed by the White House’s finest.
While Spirit is no Air Force One, the carrier does promise comfortable seating.
It’s not the first time the airline has made hay of public scandals for its advertising. In 2009, after Tiger Woods’ infamous car accident, Spirit announced an “eye of the tiger” special featuring an SUV crashed into a fire hydrant and a tiger behind the wheel.
As for those Secret Service agents, well, stay tuned, this one’s going to be a doozie.
