Advertising Amid Coronavirus Explained



A BRILLIANT TAKE ON PANDEMIC MARKETING from The Mystery Hour out of Springfield, MO and also the Internets.

Here's the pitch accompanied by perfectly timed soft guitar:

"We know you're hurting right now. It's a pandemic. You're a brand. A multi-national conglomerate that needs to reach your customers so they remember to buy things from you. We can help create a commercial that is distinctively you, just like all the others."

Take a look . . .



You decide . . .

F'ing awesome.

Pretty much describes about every commercial on TV right now.

Also hate that there's so many commercials on TV despite what I'm paying for cable.

CORONAVIRUS GOT YOU DOWN AND CONFUSED?

OVERWHELMED BY CONTRADICTORY MESSAGING ON MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING?

TIRED OF HIBERNATING AT HOME AND SICK OF YOUR OWN COOKING?

Introducing: "WE'RE HEAR FOR YOU"

"WE'RE HEAR FOR YOU" IS A REVOLUTIONARY NEW SMARTPHONE APP THAT LISTENS TO THE CONSTANT BOMBARDMENT OF COVID-19 PROPAGANDA FROM GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, CORPORATE MEDIA, AND GROCERY STORE INTERCOMS AND INSTANTLY CONVERTS IT INTO A LAUGH TRACK FOR YOUR AMUSEMENT VIA BLUETOOTH EARBUDS.

THE CORONAVIRUS WON'T KILL YOU, SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL LAUGH ABOUT IT!
"WE'RE HEAR FOR YOU" IS HERE FOR YOU.

9:52 The Corona virus does not kill, what are the refrigerated trucks doing outside the morgue in NY, what about the mass grave trenches you can see from space in Iran, Russia, China? Nothing more moronic than an supposed educated person trafficking in the lamest lies under the sun. Please go out and mingle, get real close and when you die I will dance on your grave and sing.

This is a statement agreeing with the parody that you're complaining about.
"what are the refrigerated trucks doing outside the morgue in NY"
Who's been in NY lately, lurking outside morgues?
"what about the mass grave trenches you can see from space in Iran, Russia, China?"
This one is especially funny, because it implies that 11:52 has been in space!

"the lamest lies under the sun"
What? Lies that are crippled? How can anything be under the sun? Your writing doesn't make any sense.
