This morning I read a couple accounts of this British ski wear retailer using Natasha Richardson's image to sell ski helmets and telling people they need to buy one. I thought of course it was in horrible taste, but it turns out it is even more horrible than I imagined. When I first read it I thought skiwear4less.com had e-mailed all of it customers very recently. Umm. No.
It turns out they sent the e-mail above the same day Natasha died. They sent it as a news story next to pictures of ski helmets for sale. Oh, and they did offer free shipping. Wow. That is one of the least classy things I have ever seen. Wait a second that actually makes it seem like there was some class involved. There was none. This is horrid and some British organization that monitors ads said it was horrible also and said it needed to be pulled. No kidding. No word on whether they got a lot of sales from the e-mail.
