Truth in advertising

On the way to work this morning, I was listening to the radio and came across, what is probably the cheesiest piece of radio advertising I have ever heard – and that is saying a lot!stripperREX_450x250

The ad was for a strip-joint (Surprise!). Most of the copy in the ad talked about the “club’s” Monday night football specials, but in between each line, another announcer broke in with “And boobs!”

So it went like this:

We have four big screen TVs…

And boobs!

We have dollar draft beer specials…

And boobs!

A free buffet…

And boobs!

And so on.

At first I thought I was they were overdoing it. Then, I thought about their target audience. And when I thought of what happens to many of my brothers’ brains when confronted with the very thought of “boobs,” maybe they weren’t so overboard after all.

Tasteless? No question.

Too obvious? Maybe not.

  1. Well, it caught your attention, so someone did their job right! You gotta admit, it is kind of funny in a really stupid way!

  2. That part is true. I just have to keep thinking of their target audience. What kind of person is going to go watch Monday Night Football at a strip club sitting on the side of a rural highway? OK, now the ad makes sense.

  3. Uh…how ’bout an address? Boobs AND football!!!!!!
