As you know, subway posters are an endless source of entertainment to me. This morning as I was riding the train and feeling angry about the fact that I didn’t win last night’s $550 million dollar lottery drawing, I suddenly realized I was staring at this terrible advertisement for Bowlmor.
Ohhh, look! They’re having so much fun bowling!
BUT WAIT. Take a closer look –
“Getting jumped in an alley has never been THIS much fun…”?!?!?!
I’m pretty sure this conversation has never occurred in the history of anything EVER.
Guy walks into a bar, guy has a black eye and his jacket is ripped up.
Guy’s Friend – “DUDE! What happened?? Are you ok?”
Guy – “Yeah, I’m fine. I just got jumped in the alley on my way here from work.”
Guy’s Friend – “Oh, shit man…. So… How was it?”
Guy – “You know, I’ve had better.”
I am using a lot of exclamation points, I know. But that’s because this ad is a total fail and I’m still pissed about the fact that I didn’t magically become a millionaire last night. I’m directing my anger towards Bowlmor. They deserve it.
Bowlmor people, if for some reason you happen across this post, I’ve designed a new poster for your Spring campaign.
I think you’re going to LOVE it.
Angry, angry, and still angry about the lotto results,
