New York – Tastes Like Fun!

12 Jul

I wasn’t going to blog this visit to New York City – I’ve been here too many times before and there’s no hundred-year-storm adventure to entertain you readers with stories of a Snake Plisskenesque abscond from the Big Apple.

But…

sometimes (actually all the time) I get great ideas that I just have to share. And today’s shareable idea happened to come to me while we (me, Nick, Debbie and a mysterious traveller known only as J) were stopped at the Price Choppers in Watertown (WNPI) on our way to go see a taping of the Colbert Show.

Problem: advertising is expensive to produce. It takes lots of time and money to develop an effective ad.

Solution: just take a picture of someone else’s crappy advertisement and then overlay an image of the different product you are promoting, post the resulting photo to Facebook, and then have one of my cousins share the shit out of it – sending it all around the world!

I'm not selling anything right now so I don't have anything official to add to my sample pic, but I think you get the idea.

There you go – super easy. You get to benefit from the hard work of others without having to pay anyone for anything.

And before I forget… readers – make sure to bring some U.S. cash with you on your New York road trips – your newly purchased E-Z Pass toll booth transponder takes one day to become active and it won’t work right away in the non-credit card accepting Lincoln Tunnel. This means you should just activate the device when you get to your destination instead wasting time sitting in the parking lot of the Price Choppers trying to register it on your iPhone while your Chrome browser (seriously who uses this) crashes repeatedly delaying our arrival and causing us to miss the first half of the meaningless, demoralizing (for fans and players) third place World Cup Soccer match.

    I think their ad is quite smart – even though it may have been an accidental kind of genius – because users will now be sharing thus promoting it all over interwebs for free. Thanks for the silly ad Fun Pops 😛

      I wonder if the Fun Pops child models (when they are a few years older) will stumble across this ad on FailBlog or Reddit (or whatever the future humans will use for their Internetainment) – and laugh at the unintentional hilariousness. I wonder…
