You can't make this up. (well you could, but it wouldn't be that funny)
With a sign like this it's that simple; your customer knows who you are and what you sell.
None of this "Old Navy," "Banana Republic" "Best Buy," "Victoria's Secret" vagueness.
There's more to it...than what?
You think WE think you're just broadcasting Al Qaeda messages,
"But we're not, really, we're not." Then why are you telling us? Because your research told you that. We think.
I'm sorry, this ad for McDonald's Frappe Chocolate Chip share your story or some such thing...it looks like a meatball...except it's a meatball made outta meat, hair, turf, lichen, brains...I dunno, you name it.
From @bostonturgy via Twitter comes this email subject via Joe's (Spectacularly Creepy) New Balance Outlet with a subject that makes you wanna, well, RUN!
Spectacularly creepy: a shoe outlet I've purchased from sent email this a.m. w/subj: "Let's get to know each other" #marketingfail-- IIana Brownstein (@bostonturgy) July 12, 2013
On my commuter train heading home, they drop this one on me. Kinda says,
"We can't help you make more money, but we can help you spend the money you have."
"You know what? This IS a nice pause in my day! And, damn it, I'm gonna PAUSE!!
Because those stupid fucking words on the wall told me it's time to pause!! Hell yeah muthafucka!!"
The message here is:
"Take your sad, sports-obsessed, testosterone-fueled life and make it a big ugly giant ear, with stumpy legs and short arms.
And just stand there.
Because that's all you are."
Yup, that sells product.
Start with a fish name that is also a bastardized version of "smelled" often used in the doggerel: "He who smelt it, dealt it"
"Smelt" is a funny word all by itself!
But adding "Headless" and in italics and yellow , well, you've got hilarity by the tail!!
