Where adds start to really fail

I generally like to live in Zürich*. However, there are evil forces at work, trying to malign its reputation wherever and whenever they can. The most villainous of them is Zürich Tourism, which produces adds like this:



*It has an exceptional opportunities to size ratio.

Hmm...I am not sure that I can see what upsets you about the advertisement, Mr. Urs.

The only thing I see is a small grammatical error which most people wouldn't recognize and/or completely ignore even if they did.

Mr. Urs said...

@Dr Mandragora... the add is so boring

Odi said...

Eeek. Awful.

On another note, ad spells with just one letter D (from "advertisement").

Mr. Urs said...

@Odi... one of my standard typos like navel instead of naval.

Can't say the slogan has me to think 'heyy, Zürich!!'. I'm glad Zürich is spelled out a couple of times to at least give a hint what it's about.
I bet that ad wasn't cheap either...

Love

Have you heard of Branson, Missouri?

Ads for Branson show up on TV in the states perodically. You'd never know that Branson is a sleepy little town that has about 7,000 people.
