“Follow my sins” and other marketing transgressions

Marketing is no laughing matter, but when a simple slip of the finger turns copy into an offensive gaffe, the rest of the world is at liberty to guffaw.



Marketing errors that will make you laugh

We’re b-a-a-a-ack. The blooper scooper picked up some hilarious bloopers this week, friends. From sins to insurgents, this was a colorful week for real estate property listings. Check out these memorable gaffes:

When Less is More

“No dogs insides” (Bragged Wan Lo Wang about his restaurant menu.)

“Come in – get worm” (Warning to those who eat at Wan Lo Wang’s. )

“Electric walk in kitchen” (That explains the “stir-fried feet” on Wan Lo Wang’s menu.)

“Big poach for leisure” (Newsflash to Wan Lo Wang: It’s hard to relax when you’re up to your a_ _  in hot water.)

When More is Less

“Insurgence of area” (Well that explains the Black Hawk helicopter in your kitchen.)

“Call for dissections” (Stand in front of the Black Hawk – that ought to do the trick.)

“Need voyeur for open house” (I’m sure my neighbor will volunteer if you compliment his raincoat.)

“Log pool” (So if I say I’m waterlogged, am I being redundant?)

More or Less

“Follow my sins” (Only if you promise to pay the bail money.)

“Large for such a pretentious area” (Sign on an Airstream parked on the street in Beverly Hills.)

“High tech serenity system” (Let me guess – a yoga tape and two Ambien?)

“Wader green pathway” (It seems you’ve driven your pickup into the bayou again, Bubba.)

“Sweller needs rent-back” (He’d be better off with a diuretic.)

Post Mortem

“Garage with work bitch” (Maybe she wouldn’t be such a bitch if you let her out of the damn garage.)

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,, SherlockOfHomes, IMDB or you can shoot arrows at my head via email. I can take it.
