Spirit Airlines — they of the multi-year labor dispute and the charge
for carry-on bags — would like to encourage you to buy tickets to
Cancun, Puerto Rico, Atlantic City or Fort Lauderdale with a timely new
ad campaign calledBestProtection. The tag line? “Check out the oil on our beaches.”
You know, seriously, I am coming around to Doc’s refrain that shit only matters when it happens to New York or DC, because as much as wingnuts love to hate on these places ten seconds after a terrorist attack there, I’ve never seen such a goddamn disconnect between … I mean, UNITED AIRLINES is run entirely by gaping assholes and even their post-9/11 ad campaign was respectful and kind of sweet. There’s a way to be a human in here.
And then along come these fuckholes, and who seriously thinks this is okay? I mean, a bunch of people are sitting around a room, looking over an ad campaign, and not one person has a cousin or a friend or even a warm memory of a summer vacation spent in Gulf Shores, Alabama? (Lovely little restaurant there, boardwalky-type thing, first time I ever ate real fresh crabmeat.) Nobody says, “Guys, erm.” Nobody?
