EARTH DAY IRONY, example #1.


(click image to read copy)
Corcoran Real Estate Group
, for those of you not from the New York City region, is a multi-kabillion dollar company that has un-planted (deplanted?) trees, bushes, grass, and a lot of tenants. This ad—#5 in their "How To Live Who You Are" (what?) series—is from the front page of yesterday's New York Times real estate section. So, did any of you stop by one of their Earth Day open houses and pick up your free "Corcoran Seed Packet?" What they should have been handing out was free Corcoran fertilizer bags.
(seriously slimeballs, YOU GOTTA BE FUCKIN' KIDDIN' ME)
previous stupid real estate ads:
1. Caledonia slightly updates its ad twats.
2. Corporate Real Estate Stooges Redefine "Shocking."
3. She feels pretty empty.
4. The unparalleled hyperbole of NYC Real Estate Ads.

Well that's good marketing, isn't it; to contradict the obvious in a believable way.

Or maybe something like "plant the seeds, just not anywhere near we are."

I deleted it. Too broad and obvious, even for someone as stupid as me.

Wouldn't it be more honest for Earth Day ads to be brown?
