Well, really. I’ve just seen the following advertisement on Facebook.
Awesome Rooms For Rent
Probably too nice for you, though! We’d rather have your friends. Do them a favour, let them know!
I feel rather offended. Obviously, such an arrogant marketing ploy failed to have the desired effect on me, and I was not curious enough click on the link to their site, where I was not at all impressed by their apartments, and did not agree in the slightest that they were perfectly correct in their initial assumption.
It’s a bit much to take when adverts start firing outright insults at you. Is this the way forward?
Lidl – because you’re too poor to shop at Sainsbury’s.
WeightWatchers – Have you looked in a mirror lately? So you do know how fat you are? You big hippo.
Max Factor – You have a face like the back of a bus. Do us all a favour and cover it up.
Smirnoff – If everyone had a life as dismal as yours, our sales would go through the roof.
I’m not entirely convinced that it’ll catch on, but you never know, I suppose.
