One of my favorite things about visiting a new city are local advertisements. I worked in sales in a former life and the thing that always amazed me were the clients that tried to do something and fell just (or way) short of the mark. The most common “idea” was to take an existing commercial and copy it. Because that’s always funny. Witness this commercial from Divine Rags in Memphis.[youtube http://youtu.be/NUQ-dpb0CaY]
Everything about this commercial is just…bizarre. There’s the weird knock-off of the DirecTV opulence commercial at the end, but it just comes out of nowhere. Also, can I just point out the fact that this place is named “Divine Rags”? With a name like that, no one is expecting fabulous. at. all.
so… yeah. Local Advertising and Access Television.
