One of my former students told me she saw an ad for a divorce lawyer out in Las Vegas (where they might have some cause to know) who’ s tagline was “ If you’ve lost a good woman you need a good lawyer, if you’ve lost a bad woman you need a great lawyer.
“Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy”
“You don’t want to see mama go to war”
although it only works if you are familiar with British vernacular use of “cowboy”
I have to admit it’s at least creative. Most ads are mindless, aimed at the utterly stupid.
Of course, if she/he ALSO has a female lawyer, we get “cat fight”! (NOT PC and I love the term.) Might be worth it.
Briggs, what are the “photographic inadequacies”? I don’t see any. (The shaded lines increase the effectiveness.)
There used to be one near KC that read “Your wife’s hot! Maybe you should get your air conditioning fixed!”
Pensacola, Florida. At a major intersection, there was an AAMCO with a sign at eye level that was purposely upside down. It had been that way for years. It was a local landmark, used for giving directions. “Turn left at the upside-down AAMCO.”
Long ago in Albuquerque, NM, there was a bail bond office by the courthouse that advertised in large print “we get you out of jail” and then under that in small print “even if it takes twenty years”.
It would be fun to see an ad. for SUBWAY saying that Jussie Smolett never gave up his sandwich, (And that part of his story is true).
“And Man knows it! Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him
Must command but may not govern — shall enthral but not enslave him.
And She knows, because She warns him, and Her instincts never fail,
That the Female of Her Species is more deadly than the Male.”
There is this Australian classic which is still heating snowflakes to melting point after three years..
