New Orleans nervously laughs at bp, England, itself.
(click ad, scanned from this week's Village Voice) Too soon? Copy: "And right now, everyone is welcome, especially our friends from England." How 'bout big spending bp execs? After gunking up the Gulf of Mexico, are they welcome to come "funk it up" in the French Quarter? I know Gulf businesses are desperate now, but I also know I don't quite feel like chuckling at the worst environmental disaster in US history just yet. update: campaign paid for by bp. Previously: Absolut New Orleans effort smacks of absolute opportunism.
