Being in the ad business only makes this ad all the more intriguing and mysterious to me! Why cant we see the man, is this supposed to empower the woman? Is she rejecting his meagre offering of her own umbrella? Is this som aging 80's ad man's attempt at trying to make a sexy hosiery ad, while imbuing his ad with this newfangled idea of 'women's lib' - therefore giving of a strange, pineapple scented mixed message?

The only edible bromiliade, it's history is rather wild and full of intrigue.

It was supposedly discovered by Columbus on an island in the Caribbean )now called Guadalupe) but was originally from what is now Paraguay. It was traded for a few hundred years by indians via dugout canoes and the story goes that when Columbus' men snuck into a deserted village they found the fruit next to butchered human remains boiling in pots.

Its also the Hospitality fruit, as for hundreds of years it was the Hallmark of anyone who was well connected. People actually rented pineapples by the hour just to have them at parties.

It's my belief that this photo was taken during the rut, and was snapped at the last moment before the entire lodge broke out in a sans Pantaloon's frenzy

You're all wrong. She's using her finger to hide her butt chin and the umbrella is a phallic symbol. Look, I know all about phallic symbols. It's an ad about oral sex, obviously.

The puzzle is simply an issue of bad cropping. The real photo prior to the ad makes much more sense. Blame it on the magazine editors.

The thing about this photo that is most unrealistic is the lady's bag.
It's Empty!
I've never known a woman have a bag thats not like a botomless pit filled with all sorts of crap.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong

Good catch Cheeky! Maybe the man is suggesting she put the umbrella in her bag to take home, since she has so much room, and if he put it in his pocket, it might poke his arse!

While his one hand is near the very phallic bananas, the other points to her nipple - suggesting that even though he is a clean cut fellow, he's really interesting in sticking his banana betwixt her melons. However, she is holding a pineapple - although traditionaly a sign of hopitality, it's sharp spikes say in a most tactile manner, STAY AWAY! Yes, she's smiling at him now, but that is only because she is a stock photographer's model and hates her life. She will go home and down a bottle of wild turkey and eat 30 Xanax in a haze of self pity. He will call her a 'frigid bitch', then go off to a strip joint.

Or, maybe they're just shopping for fruit.

On a weekend trip to sunny Jamaica Phil has a life-changing revelation…

“That’s a pineapple?!? Holy shit! I always thought they grew inside those little metal cans at the supermarket!”

Buffy fakes a smile and thinks to herself, “Oh Dear Lord in Heaven, why did I get hooked up with such a goddamned moron?”

Ok, ok you guys are all full of it...He is an extremely controlling man. He is taking the umbrella out of the drink so she can drink it and not have her nose get poked by the umbrella. She is a trophy girlfriend he is a voyeur who does not drink, but only likes to watch.

They are both thinking how incredibly happy they are after sharing a stick of Doublemint gum.
