Get Through the Season

I keep seeing these Halls “Get Through the Season” ads on the subway. At immediate first glance my reaction was What the deuce? (Yes, I watch too much Family Guy).

Someone commented on it saying it would a cool photo to upload to, so I decided to check it out. It’s actually a pretty cool site, you upload a photo of your feet wherever you are.
