This is the visual from an ad for:

  1. The American Express Platinum Card.
  2. Platinum, The Movie, based on the Gotham crime-fighting comic book hero with a heart of gold.
  3. A Chelsea gym.
  4. Yet another overstated, overhyped overpromising overpriced condo tower (this one in Times Square) beckoning pump-monkey, bump-snorting Wall Street douchebags.
(scanned from the March Bloomberg Markets)
previously in NYC real estate
1. Jonathan Swift Realty, Inc.
2. Real Estate Stooges Redefine "Shocking"
3. CLEARLY defining your target audience.

useless platinum fact:
a toffee hammer forged from platinum would be a silly idea.

Stupidest thing I ever saw. Am I supposed to assume that hardbodied, sweaty people will be living there too? (and that I might (hopefully) bump into one as well?)

You know what's cutting edge? Exactly the opposite of what these guys are doing now.

On second thoughts, it's a shiny man trying to give himself a blow job. And getting himself steamed up.

Alec Baldwin said it takes brass balls to sell real estate. No it doesn't.

It's residence for the kind of people who like unspeakably horrific Flash websites.

This is going to be a hive for douchy, striped shirt wearing, Jaeger bomb drinking finance types that high five one another and lease Escalades, and have no appreciation for design or function whatsoever.

I propose a renaming of this building to "Dickburg towers".
