If you haven’t seen Inception, *SPOILER ALERT!* Marion Cotillard plays Mal, Cobb’s (Leonardo DiCaprio) wife and subconscious projection of his guilt over her untimely passing. Oh yeah, she’s also a totally badass bitch:
When she’s not trying to persuade Cobb to join her for all eternity in Limbo, she’s shooting and shanking people who get in her way. If you wanted to be a class bomb about it, you could say she makes it her business to f*ck your sh*t up, which is sorta like what the girl posting this Inception-inspired Craigslist casual encounter ad wants to one very special guy. It’s definitely not safe for work, but it will also break your brain more than Joseph Gordon Levitt’s zero-gravity fight scene, so of course you should check it out:
Sure, I imagine that this ad is as real as one of the dream worlds Ellen Page built–oh, I’m sorry–architected, but I’d prefer to imagine that there really is someone out there who would actually get off on this. Hell, there probably is someone out there who would get off on this. Sexual predilections are like iPhone apps: there’s a fetish for that.
More importantly, though, I keep getting hung up on the fact that whoever wrote this ad, real or fake, got their terminology all wrong. Kicks take you out of a dream world, not put you into one! If you’re going to post a most-likely-fake sex ad on Craigslist in the hopes of finding a freaky nerd to either rim or ridicule, you need to at least get the language right. It doesn’t matter how good that rim job is, lady. Nerds are not afraid to prioritize semantics over sex. Even the virgins.
Much love, as always, to Videogum for this one.
