Hendrix rolling over in his puke.

(click image)
Gee, 184 Thompson Street Owner LLC, proprietor of 140 "loft-like" (whatever the hell that means) condominiums in Greenwich Village: did ya get permission from the James Marshall Hendrix estate to exploit the "legend" for your noble realty purposes?
(little known fact: Phil Hartman was a roadie for the Jimi Hendrix Experience.)

That IS a little known fact. Phil Hartman also did time on Pee Wee's Playhouse as Captain Carl. He also designed a Steely Dan album cover.

And then his wife shot him in the head.

"Hey, Brynn, where you goin' with that gun in your hand..."

"live among legends"? Legends are DEAD, if I wanted to live in a graveyard I'd get some effin fangs, prance around in a cape, and buy a casket to live in instead of your stupid, over-priced, "loft-like", wanna be condo!

What the fuck does that have to do with selling condos? What a waste of nice art direction.

When an address or a neigborhood or an entire city starts living on its legend you KNOW that that address or neighborhood or entire city is artistically creatively livingly dead dead dead.

I think Rosa Parks is shilling cars now. *sigh* it's all about the benjamins frankly.

Coming soon in the illogical pimp a dead person advertising series --

Lenny Bruce for the Republican Party
Susan Sontag for MTV
Rick James for Concerned Women of America
Richard Nixon for the ACLU
Ronald Reagan for the AFL-CIO

Seriously, I feel sorry for the person who created the ad -- imagine how he or she deals with their rotting insides on a daily basis.

not to defend these idiots clarence, but Hendrix did play a right-handed guitar, upside down and re-strung.

Fuck all y'all! Sure they got the guitar wrong. Absolutely it's about selling high real estate to aged boomers by tweaking their nuts with a musician for whom they new exactly one song from his catalog. That's fuckin' punk! Harden the fuck up, copyranter.
