Someone at an ad company surely got fired for this one

The ad is real.  I did a good deal of Googling last night and found an original version of the same ad campaign in an old PDF of Parade Magazine from 2010 (you have to scroll through the mag to find it).  At first blush, it looks like a cute little ad for Nancy’s “petite quiches,” with the adorable tag-line: “Petite bites. Big compliments.”

The only problem?  If you speak French, like I do, when you see this ad, like I did for the first time last night, the ad doesn’t say “Petite bites. Big compliments.”  It in fact says, “Small dicks. Big compliments.”
Nancy’s sales must have gone through the roof on that one.
