Can You Tell What This Ad Is About?

This is not the most ridiculous advertisement I have ever seen, but it's the most ridiculous advertisement I've ever seen on the front page of Yahoo! Also, it's perhaps the most vague as well:

What do issues affecting young women have to do with “what defines my generation”? (Note to the new reader: I am not a young woman.... not even close.)

An online exhibit of what? Of young women? Well, sure, I'm up for that.

Music and community resources? What on earth does that have to do with the above??? Oooooh, wait, is this a MySpace ad?

I have no idea what it's all about, and from the look of the person in the ad, neither does she.

In any case, there's certainly nothing about the ad that makes me want to click to find out (not even the oh-so-inviting “GET INVOLVED” button), but at least the discussion is “global”, so they've got that going for them. Sigh.

The photo made me think it was an advertisment for a chiropractor – that lady sure looks like she needs *some* sort of adjustment on her neck! I decided to see what it was advertising. Even after looking at the “”Imagining Ourselves” exibition (which is what it’s called), I’m still not sure. Hmm. Imagining ourselves. Makes it sound like I’m my own imaginary friend.

Well i think it simply means that different cultures have their own believs and different things define their lifes and generations.

i think this ad aims on young people and maybe its about the differences between austrians and chineese people (or something like that)

could i be right with my assumption?
