Culture on the Cheap
At last, truth in advertising!
I found this ‘corrected’ advertisement at the 23rd Street – Ely Avenue stop of the E train recently. It would appear that someone is finding this promise of a 6 minute, 42 second commute to Manhattan a bit difficult to swallow— or (more likely) he fell for this ruse and now has a serious case of buyer’s remorse. Either way, it makes me damned happy I ride the G train.
I for one recommend that these posters be relocated to the 7 line. The advertising copy should be revised to read as follows:
If you lived here you would still be waiting for the 7 train. Sucker!
