Kristi, a listener with a top position with a top corporation, sends along this observation:
Just as I was beginning to wonder about Clear Channel's marketing strategy, they finally seem to get something right. I love the commercials far more than the current billboard campaign, which is a tad "boring" compared to prior ads. One thing I question is the placement of the billboards--driving down Tara Blvd (a.k.a. Rosa Parks Blvd), I wonder if Clear Channel is targeting those 2 potential black listeners with the numerous Regular Guys billboards I've seen in Clayton County? Do they not realize that Clayton's current demographics do not exactly represent TRG "listener material"?
Perhaps, but as I've stated before, the "Turn in your Race Card" promotion still stands. Any listener that publicly renounces the absurd Frank Ski and Tom Joyner Shows as poison to the black community with their Wayne Williams-supporting, Jesse Jackson celebrating, OJ-excusing, hate/blame whitey attitudes, and switches to the Regular Guys ShowTM will be rewarded....although the billboards don't really say that do they? I'll look into putting that up there.
See the attached, one billboard off Tara did catch my eye--it is positioned directly over one of Tara's numerous "spas"--probably accidentally so, but clever nonetheless. Clear Channel could actually take a lesson or two from the Spa's catchy ad gimmicks. Notice the giant, somewhat phallic-shaped blow-up cylinder with none other than a HAND on top, pointing to the spa! Now, this is what I call brilliant marketing! Just thought you might like to pass this lesson in Marketing 101 along to the "powers that be."
Why do you think our billboard is positioned "on top?" And you failed to notice that we are also by the auto parts store, another business that sells lubrication to men. We're in Marketing 102 if you need us.
Anyone still reeling economically from Friday's illegal "strike?"
Man, I hope they don't do that again. Oooh! How will my car ever become clean again? Who will I have to watch like a hawk so they don't miss the obvious bird shit stains missed by the machine? Oh, how will I ever get through the day without dodging ladders on the road and uninsured motorists doing 50 in the fast lane? Who will be there to throw their diarrhea covered pants in the QT garbage can? Dear me.
My only sympathies go to Mexicans. Every other illegal protesting on Friday's show went to great pains to point out that they were NOT Mexicans.
Hey, we may be illegal, but we ain't Mexican! Harsh getting rolled under the van by other ignoramuses.
Simply put, you can choose to call them illegals or wetbacks or undocumented workers. I call them all, Mexican or other, dumbasses. Let's be blunt. When you break into someone's house, you don't complain about the quality of food in the fridge or the black level of the plasma screen you're removing for personal use. That's just dumbass.
Whither the dumbass? The dumbass is someone who is just a shade over retarded. They are not slow enough to qualify for government largesse, yet not swift enough to swim the currents of free markets to the shores of success. What do we do with our second-rate people if not grind them for food? Only a dumbass would think that this country would cease to run if we couldn't get our strawberries in a timely manner.
And you politicians keep on raising the minimum wage so we pay more for less productivity. Dumbasses are not limited to brown. What's wrong with paying a dude a buck an hour if that's what he's worth at that particular time?
Instead of agitating for unearned respect, you few protestin' folks who can read this ought to thank your lucky stars that someone around here doesn't get the idea to pass a law tomorrow that makes you motherfuckers work for free. Our miscalculation last time was forcing people to come here and not letting them leave if they didn't like it. This time we may have more backers.
