I saw a commercial last night for a $50 gold buffalo tribute “proof,” whatever that is. It’s a flippin’ COIN. Probably made for flippin’ – before the Super Bowl or something. But there was a threat at the end of the ad that cracked me up since I’d just written about crap being sold as not being crap.
Here was the pitch:
“AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT AND FUTURE REGRET! CALL NOW.” Please be aware, shoppers, that you are limited to a maximum of five (5) proofs. If commercials are going with the guilt trip sales pitch, I think I have a mother who could make a fortune writing TV advertisements.
