Great Moments In Advertising: Drumsticks For The Masses!
Yours truly has seen a great deal of interesting advertising campaigns over the years. Curiously enough, a great many seem to involve fried chicken. Go figure. In any case, prior to stumbling upon this specimen (which hails from Broadway) I popped into a local bodega to get a cup of tea. It was there I overheard the chap at the cash register bantering with a customer regarding the tsunami in Japan. The latter:
I’m waiting for one to hit the Empire State Building.
Cashier: Tsunamis don’t get that big.
Customer: Yes they do. The biggest one ever was 500 times taller than the Empire State Building!
That’s pretty damned high, gentle readers. Then again, so was this guy. In all seriousness, bodega banter might be good for a chuckle but what is happening in Japan most decidedly is not. For this reason I encourage those of you who are able (Hey, I know times are tough) to make a donation to the Red Cross. This can be done by clicking here. Thanks!
