I decided since I rant about advertising enough, I’d setup a whole separate category called that.
So my latest rant is on a billboard I’ve seen several times on my way to and from work.Â It’s for Seagram’s Extra Dry Gin, and the ad is a stylized looking barbershop with someone sitting getting their haircut, a barber cutting their hair, and a couple people sitting around hanging out.Â Underneath this image is the saying “Snip snip, sip sip.”
(pause for effect)
What!?Â Is this suggesting that the barber is drinking alcohol in between scissor cuts?Â Is that really a good idea?Â Or is it suggesting that you should drink while getting your haircut?Â Also, is that a very good idea?
Either way it’s confusing and stupid.
