Creepy Ad Watch


Copyranter cringes at this "sleazy tourism ad" from North Dakota (which reads: Drinks, dinner, decisions. Arrive a guest, leave a legend):

ND is the least visited state in the US, by the way. I'm sure this superb ad will change that. Related: the most bizarre tourism commercial ever (via Switzerland).

Maggie Koerth-Baker feels nothing but pity:

It's sleaze as designed by people who have no idea what sleaze is supposed to look like. They've just heard about it third-hand from someone who went to Vegas once.
