What is the point of this Facebook recruitment advert image? #FAIL

Screen Shot 2012-11-09 at 11.24.38

Last Friday, this advert appeared in the usual stack of adverts while I was on Facebook. Aside from the fact that the targeting (on me) is a little off, what the hell is this Facebook advert about? Can you guess what they are promoting with ‘bicep man’ from the picture? 

Maybe I am missing something about electricians? Maybe having large biceps is aspirational for prospective electricians? 🙂

Another example of a poor piece of social recruitment advertising. Know any others?
