Stupid Ads

BARF BARF BARF! What a lame ad! I would NEVER bank here!

one west bank, stupid ads, drollgirl

If you haven't guessed, it is BAD ATTITUDE MONDAY.  Ugh.  It is grey and dreary out, and I'd rather be hibernating.  

I am at work alone today.  We have a client coming in to view two VERY EXPENSIVE PAINTINGS, and I am nervous.  This is his THIRD time viewing these paintings, and he is supposedly seriously interested.  I am not a sales person.  I do not want to do or say anything to fark up this deal, and I hope hope HOPE this guy doesn't bring his mean wife with him today, because she is a deal-killer and a half.  Fingers crossed that he buys one (or both!!!) of these paintings, as it would be a HUGE GIGANTIC RELIEF and we could really use a big sale (or any kind of sale in this stupid economy).  :|

I hear you sister....selling art is such a delicate business... the hard sell puts them off and the soft sell gives them an out...it's all about the closing...and that is scary sometimes. They are buying the experience as well as the expensive paintings so...smile and suck it up.....

Caroline said...

Putting good vibes out there for you....you won't fark it up! Unless to tell his wife to shove it up her ass...sooo...don't do that and you should be fine :)p

chee-sy with a capital C. and barf on top of your barf. i'm sure some ad guy was feeling very don draper-y when he came up with that lame ass ad.

good luck with the sale today. hopefully his cock blocking wife will decide to do botox today instead of tag along.

well, I take it as a good sign that he is back for the 3rd time. Means he really wants to buy but something is holding him back, but he REALLY wants to buy. HE REALLY WANTS TO BUY. {there, that ought to do the trick ;-) }.
Better days, sister!

So...what type of art are you representing?

DON'T FORGET THE 'Y' said...

BAD ATTITUDE MONDAY is official.

Phoenix said...

lol this ad is very, uh... dippy? Do people still use that word?

(And it reminds me of the much better line from the Doctor in The Hangover when the guys ask him to draw a map. Hah! Now those are some good directions!)

Bad attitude Monday, eh? That's when I go treat myself to Starbucks so no one ends up getting killed.

I can't stand ads in general, and this one is defs one of the worst I've seen in awhile.

Pretty Little World said...

Good luck with the paintings - I'll keep my fingers crossed for you (both that he buys them, and that he leaves his icky wife behind!).

SabinePsynopsis said...

Wishing you the best at work today!!!

And that ad is horrible!

Dancing Branflake said...

You'll do great I know it! I'm sure it already happened and I'm sure you were totally awesome. Worst ad ever, btw. Who would bank there after that?

K.Line said...

So how did it go in the end? Did he purchase??

The Childlike empress said...

sometimes i see adverts and i make a mental note that i will not buy the product because of it. Sometimes they just get it sooo wrong!

十十f十 said...

i just came back from analysing print and television ads for school so please excuse me if i didn't get this ad.

how'd it go eventually? :)

blog response: it's the way we speak here. it's mostly direct translation from mandarin or local dialects. have you been to singapore?

Ebony said...

Good luck on your sale. Sales suck and sales-people suck even more so don't try to be a sales-person. Just be yourself. In the end, people don't buy what they don't want (excluding the stuff near the register in Target) so if he wants it all you need to do is smile and nod "Yes, it will look amazing in your ____ or I'll bet ______ will wish that she saw it first."

I hope the sale went through yesterday!
and I am with you on the stupid ad. I grew up in a day and age when banking was serious and you didn't go in and apply for a loan in cutoffs and messy hair. You actually combed your hair and tried to look respectable. And back then, the bank wasn't always trying to be my "hip cool friend". Let's not kid ourselves about who calls the shots beyond the wicket with the cheap pen on a chain. - G
