showcase goodness

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt
showcase is home to many neat reality shows, movies and after 9pm… things you shouldn’t watch unless you’re over the age of 14 … in some cases 18… and in other cases 50. they’ve had this ad campaign out for over a year now… “thanks showcase”. i remember seeing the commercials months ago ie. an elderly couple in their underwear, in bed, looking at the camera “Showcase is our safe word”. Basically people you wouldn’t expect to be a lil daring or have a kinky side thanking showcase for breaking down barriers for them – through late night tv programming. now i thought i had blogged about those tv ads when they first came out but i could be wrong. (click to view one of the commercials)

this morning i noticed a bus stop ad on robson – a woman in gardening attire tending to her “plants” *wink wink* thanking showcase for showing her how to “grow her own”. now i know someone on metblogs or beyondrobson is going to have a post up about this pretty soon because it seems to be a trend to take pics of advertising space in vancouver and blog about it. i thought i would jump on that bandwagon – but i didnt take a pic of it. so i’m not as cool :p

    I don’t think that any of us at Beyond Robson have posted about advertisements that we thought were intentionally amusing; just the ones that were amusing despite their best efforts 🙂

    it was more of a comment on ‘snapping pictures of things on the street then blogging about them’ , particularly bus stop signage – not that that’s a bad thing 🙂
