Ken (playjerist) | 721 comments I was going to say, “Bottoms up,” until I remembered that’s the slogan for National Hook-Up Day.

The problem I see with msg 2 is that it would be warm before you finished drinking it. Apart from that I love margaritas. Can I vote for a Margarita day every day. I just need someone willing to make them for me.

Michael This restaurant in Indiana just pulled their billboard because it was thought to be in bad taste taste. The billboard features a picture of a Margarita. The ad is certainly questionable, but I'm not sure it's really in bad taste.

Bad taste advertising? You decide.

Ken (playjerist) | 721 comments I think it’s an amusing ad, but my guess is that it’s a little too quirky and idiosyncratic to serve its intended purpose of increasing sales. I don’t see the branding improvement there.

Maybe they intend to go the Geico route, hoping to heighten visibility by becoming synonymous with quirkily amusing ads.

What do you think is in bad taste, the Kool Aid part, the 'to die for' part or just the whole thing?


Lyzzibug ~Still Breathing~ (lyzzibug) | 708 comments I'm sorry, but I think it's hilarious.

Ha! I knew I'd seen it somewhere! I think it was on a local church sign (but without the "to die for" part).

Yes, it is in bad taste. Needed to be pulled.

I didn't know that Congresswoman Jackie Speier was a survivor of Jonestown. She made an appearance in the well of Congress a few days ago talking about the pregnancy she lost and how Planned Parenthood needs its funding maintained. (google the footage, it's worth watching.)

Speier served as a congressional staffer for Congressman Leo Ryan. Speier was part of the November 1978 fact-finding mission to investigate allegations of human rights abuses by the Reverend Jim Jones and his Peoples Temple followers, almost all of whom were American citizens who had moved to Jonestown with Jones in 1977 and 1978.[5] Speier was one of only two members of the mission who were concerned enough about potential violence to make out a will before traveling to Jonestown.[10] Several Peoples Temple members ambushed the investigative team and others boarding the plane to leave Jonestown on November 18. Five people died, including Congressman Ryan. While attempting to shield herself from rifle and shotgun fire behind small airplane wheels with the other members of the team, Speier was shot five times and waited 22 hours before help arrived.[11]
