A while ago I posted this flyer that Rogers left in my mailbox:
I mocked the fact that these people appear to be getting extremely excited by a telephone. Well, since then, Rogers has continued their barrage of junk mail and spam phonecalls. I literally got three different ads for Rogers Home Phone in my mailbox yesterday. How many trees have died trying to sell me something I will never, ever buy? But instead of complaining, I will do what any good geek should do; continue to mercilessly mock their shitty advertising on my blog.
This came with my last bill:
It appears to be a continuation of their "smiling kid stuck to my face while looking at mundane things" ad campaign. This one is a new low, since it's not even a fancy free phone, but a new design for a bill. The kid is gesturing at the new layout, all like "holy shit mom! There never used to be a box around the account summary! And is that Lucida Sans Serif font I see?!"
Maybe the random stock photography would make more sense if it was something kids these days are actually into...like, oh, I dunno:
And is it just me, or do the lady's hands look freakishly big, and are her arms at such an angle that they would have to be seven feet long for her to be typing like that?
Oh but now I'm just being nitpicky.
