911 calls received after Texas sign company makes truck sticker depicting kidnapped woman
Daily Mail UK ^ | 7 September 2013 | By James Daniel

A tailgate decal on the back of a truck that shows a woman to be bound and tied in the back, is causing a bit stir in Texas.

At first glance, the optical illusion given off by the decal is so convincing that it really does appear that there is a woman in the back.

The sticker is the work of Hornet Signs, a marketing and advertising company in Waco.

According to Brad Kolb, the owner of the company, the sticker was put on an employee’s truck to gauge how realistic their decals are.

'I wasn't expecting the reactions we got, nor do we condone this by any means,' Mr Kolb told KWTX.

I hope the Truck Company is billed for all the resources used in handling the calls.

I understand they also make one depicting a sniper in the truck bed.

This is what happens when you remove the idea of ‘shame’ from a nation. If you have to explain to someone why this is wrong in every way, they don’t even deserve the lecture. You can’t fix twisted and stupid.

Yeah, he should have put a sarcasm tag. Or a laugh track.

can’t be any pain over loss of glory if one is insensitive to glory. it is the good Lord of course who dignifies people and that’s what gets impugned by a stunt like this. the sniper decal is, perhaps, funny (assuming that he has something valid at which to snipe). but this one is just sick. yes, even if we presume that the person depicted wanted it as a sick thrill, as an offering to evil.

and well... whether the ‘you’ can fix twisted and stupid depends on whether the ‘you’ is a human or God. the latter, indeed, can.

Now that could cause a major collision, or maybe even heart attack for folks who are neat freaks. The worst part of seeing that toilet seat driver is that almost nobody would believe you at first. MegaVulgar!

Even God can do it only if the twisted and sick human wants to be fixed.

Or, probably more accurately, He is capable of fixing people against their will, but chooses not to.

Those stickers existed in the 1960s, albeit for windows, and not as realistic looking.

(One of my pet peeves is the distinct lack of damage in tv show shootouts...)

Had some of those on the back of my SUV,got pulled over for speeding and the officer actually rubbed them to see if they were real. It was funny at the time.

such fixing would not be fixing. fixing is integral with love. love must be voluntary and can be refused.
