918 people died to bring you this billboard.
(click billboard, via adrants) I'm all for dark borrowed interest humor in advertising—as long as it makes a scrap of sense. This Jonestown riffing ad for a Michigan Mexican restaurant chain does not. Says La Señorita's VP of Sales and Marketing Jeff Leslie: "...we know that not everyone will get the humor of our ads and we accept that, we do not expect that our ads will offend people." Yes, we won't "get" it. Maybe if it was for a Guyanese restaurant? No. Previously in inappropriate ad humor:
• The Blind.
• the bp oil spill.
• domestic violence.
