Marketing gaffes to make you laugh

Welcome to this week’s edition of the blooper reel, friends. Not every blooper is a misspelling – some are just nonsensical. Let these gaffes be a reminder that we should not only use spellcheck, but also re-read our work. Otherwise, there could some funny results, as with these funny whoppers:

Underwhelming

“Seene in Architectural Digess” (You can spell the big words and not the small ones???)

“Dazing chandelier” (Yeah, that happens when a light fixture falls on your head.)

“Gret place to call home” (You’d be better off calling a tutor.)

“Crakt shows in constraction” (Crack pipe shows on your dashboard…)

“Ask we derliver” (Der liver is probably pickled.)

Overstating

“8 horse bar” (How do they fit their hairy a_ _ es on the stools?)

“Beaudiful hoime” (Hello, Brooklyn.)

“Three story tow house’” (Wow, that must be the tallest home in the trailer park!)

“Rent good call for roll” (Can I get some corned beef and a pickle with that?)

“Tune key home” (Can you please sing that in the key of F?)

“House had small frie” (Hence the blackened turkey stuck to the ceiling.)

Over the Top-ing

“Bigger than it looks” (That’s what they all say…)

“New wood chaps” (Only in West Hollywood…)

“Wong thengs all fixed now” (Sign at a vasectomy clinic in Chinatown.)

That’s it for this week, folks. Remember: Spell well and sell!

Written By

I wear several hats: My mink fedora real estate hat belongs to Sotheby’s International Realty on the world famous Sunset Strip. I’M not world famous, but I've garnered a few Top Producer credits along the way. I also wear a coonskin writer's cap with an arrow through it, having written a few novels and screenplays and scored a few awards there, too. (The arrow was from a tasteless critic.) My sequined turban is my thespian hat for my roles on stage, and in film and television, Dahling. You can check me out in all my infamy at LinkedIn, LAhomesite.com, SherlockOfHomes, IMDB or you can shoot arrows at my head via email. I can take it.
