    I don’t think it is supposed to represent the teacher-student thing, but a “hot girl” sleeping with a nerd so that he will do her homework for her.
    See the text – “what price are you paying to get your assignments done” – when coupled with the ad itself, which is advertising an academic verison of Office, pretty much leads to this conclusion. Not to mention the rather young looking girl in the bed.
    Lucky geek, though. 🙂
