Great Moments In Real Estate Marketing: Hardcore Luxury

When I saw this corker at the corner of Bedford Avenue and North 6 Street today I simply had to document it. As soon as I got home I brought it to the Mister’s attention. I don’t care if he took a personal day today or not: this is important.

This woman simply does not have enough tattoos. Although the one she does have— which looks like it was selected and possibly executed under the influence of narcotics— or possibly in jail— is a good start.

I stated, to get the ball rolling.

She went somewhere very nice that tattoo. I have no doubt she paid a lot of money to make it look like she got it in prison.

The Mister countered.

“Agreed” I said and went on to opine:

There are a number of things wrong with this ad now that I have really looked at it. For starters, why isn’t someone sitting at the table surrounded by empty cans of PBR and Colt 45 cutting up a suspicious white substance with a gold card? Maybe they’re doing it on the granite counter tops in the bathroom instead?

To wit the Mister replied:

What I want to know is where’s the scraggly haired son of bitch passed out on the couch? You know, the one she’s “dating”* to piss her dad off?

I could not have put it better myself. Sorry Edge PR hacks, but until you make the changes we have just outlined (oh yeah, throw in some piercings while you’re at it) this advertisement is a colossal fail.

Miss Heather

*This was not the word the Mister used.

  2. Should be a visible syringe on the table. Anybody can do white powder. Real street smart people move up to items with paraphernalia that is much more fun to use.

  4. I think I get it, Lisanne!. It’s a matter of accouterments and accessories. YEARS AGO at the Greenpoint YMCA after a workout I was waiting to use the bathroom. And waiting. Finally I divested myself of any sense of decency (I really needed to go) and peeked: it was a 30-40 something “soccer mom” snorting cocaine from a Bic pen cap. As you can imagine I was rather irked by this. I do not like waiting to use the bathroom— much less at a public health facility— because a woman is snorting coke. With a Bic pen cap. This is not only rude, it is declasse.

    If my memory serves me correctly I shouted “Hello, some of us would like to use the bathroom!”. She exited without making eye contact.

Tell me what you're thinking...
