It is extremely risky method because it can not only attract attention but also forever damage the reputation among the particular population. The easiest way to say ,that it’s scandalous advertising using foul language. For example, the slogan «Fcuk fashion», which is both the name of the company, made millions to advertisers, however,it put an end to the possibility of selling line of products for the elders. Outrageous advertising should be directed to a specific group of people and the advertiser should be aware that after such advertising someone may refuse to deal with him
