@ffields Distasteful ad as seen in Landlord and Buy-to-let magazine, death always sells? [link to advert]
Here’s the advert from Letting Match:
Is it distasteful? What do you think?
I’m assuming the alleged distasteful part is using the concept of “death” as a positive notion. I suppose Letting Match could have pushed the bounderies even further by showing punters celebrating…
Personally, I don’t really think the advert is distasteful, but then again, apparently I’m an insensitive, childish shitbag that still finds it amusing when someone says “pull my finger” and then passes wind. On the other hand, I don’t think the advert is particularly amusing either (I’m assuming it’s meant to be), not because it’s offensive, but because, well, it’s just not funny.
