HBO creates fake escort page ad for Hung.
(click ad) Well, this ad—scanned from near the back of this week's Timeout New York—is relatively clever, certainly more clever than the writing from the first episode of the new series starring Thomas Jane. The fake Detroit hooker ads within the ad, though, could've used some snappier, sexier wordsmithing—like this, this or this, for example. Visiting the Happiness Consultants website is a flaccid experience. The short :25 message you get by calling 888-588-HUNG is a bit more entertaining.
