Dept. Of Who Are The Ad Wizards That Came Up With This One: With Love, Philly Ads Running On Travel & Leisure Piece Declaring Us The 2nd Dirtiest City In America
Sometimes we like to think that GPTMC is in the throes of a Brewster’s Millions-esque panic where, if they don’t burn a certain amount of money in a certain space by a certain time, someone’s going to murder an entire breed of puppies. And so it goes with this Travel & Leisure piece — Travel & Leisure, by the way, being second only to Forbes when it comes to entirely unscientific bullshit desperate needy hit-grab listicles like this — which declares us to be the second dirtiest city in America. Complete with a full rack of “With Love, Philadelphia” ads. It made us want to write one of our own:
Dear Travel & Leisure,
You’re going to be in business for another 18 months tops, because you are a print magazine with no real ideas. Please enjoy these ad dollars from us, and good luck refinancing your homes and finding new jobs. Fuck you.
