Harbor Freight Ad in Skateboarder Mag When I first glanced at this ad for Harbor Freight in the Nov. 2009 issue of Skateboarder Magazine, I thought it was one of those parody ad designed to look like those horribly generic ads for discount sales companies. Upon closer look, I realized IT IS one of those fucking ads!

I'm not sure what demographic they're trying to reach with a full page ad in Skateboarder, but I don't find much correlation between skateboarding and random tools. Floor jacks, compressors and generators can come in handy, but I wonder what their ad department was thinking when they signed up for this.

They even included a special link to their site- www.harborfreightusa.com/skateboarder
Um... good luck with that.
