Worst. Ad campaign. Ever.

Just got a flyer on my door with a totally ripped, hot dude cleaning some lady's pool as he smirks at her. Awesome!

NOT SO FAST, FELLOW FRIENDS.

The caption reads: "Call us, not the other guys. We specialize in clean pools, not hot pool boys."

WELL I GUESS I WON'T BE HIRING YOU THEN, WILL I? [Any reason they couldn't specialize in BOTH?]



Even better? There's a picture of "Our Guys" in the corner, all small: some 50 year old good ol' boy with a uniform and a chicken nugget gut. NO ME GUSTA.

That... has to be the stupidest and least effective ad campaign ever.

Unless they're pitching to the husbands, who of course do all the business hiring decisions for the household. Then it's just gross.

Well, one thing's for sure: When your choices are between stupid and gross, the ad campaign is a failure.

It's funny, because I live in a neighborhood filled with stay-at-home moms, so MOST ads that come to the door/in the mail are geared as total lady bait. Which makes this ad all the more funny to me.

Wriiiite eeeeeeet!

Uh, he's the older guy of the popular Teen Wolf pairing, right? In which case I fully support this hot proposition. I just support Pool Boy AUs everywhere!

I have to make a pinhole in cardboard to look at him, otherwise HE BURNS MY RETINAS.

Re: O_O
HOLY WHAT THE --

WHY DID NO ONE SHOW ME THIS PICTURE BEFORE WHEN TELLING ME I SHOULD WATCH TEEN WOLF?

THIS IS 100000% MORE PERSUASIVE THAN ANYTHING EVER!

Okay, yes, whew. Wow! Yes. *stares*

I may have scrolled up and down several times before I could muster the concentration to hit "post comment".

Wow.

Re: O_O
I am now convinced that Teen Wolf is a fandom that I need to pursue. Cheezits, that boy is smoking hot.

Re: O_O
HE NEVER WEARS A SHIRT ON THE SHOW.

Or when he does, it's skin tight or a tank top. HE IS BEYOND HUMAN.

(And I'm telling you, yes, he's eye candy, but it's Stiles that you in particular are going to love. My icon? That's the actor that plays him. I HAVE IT SO BAD.)

Are they assuming it's the men of the manors that do all the hiring? That just pisses me off.

I think it's just a bad campaign. I mentioned in another comment that most of the households here have stay-at-home wives. Most ads are geared towards us ladies.

JUST A REALLY BAD AD, FULL STOP.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
