German Adverts in English
Monday, 8 March 2010
I saw a poster at the airport in Berlin which I found strangely appealing. I don’t know why, but there’s something very poignant about it. Poor Kevin Costner. I think it’s the sort of advert that’s better done at the height of one’s career. Otherwise it might suggest… you know… that all he ever thinks about, whatever he’s doing, is how to recapture that 1990s feeling when Dances With Wolves was fresh out. When he felt like a star. HE JUST WANTS THAT FEELING AGAIN. But I’m not sure it’s an advert that would actually make anyone else more likely to fly Turkish Airlines.
An advert I saw on the side of a passing taxi was far more effective. Much better from a sales point of view. I have never really been tempted to go on safari before.
But this sounds like my kind of safari.
