Not to steal a topic, but I recently saw a poster for the TTC’s new ad campaign, Put The Garbage Where It Belongs, and it made me laugh out loud. On the subway platform. When I was by myself.
Garbage goblins! I love it! It was so damn cheesey, it really did hit me. Spacing‘s right though, it’s not a good campaign at all. Just funny…
If you go to the TTC’s webpage dedicated to the campaign, they actually have an animation, extending the awfulness of the ad. I thought it would be something funny with little cartoon goblins running all around the subway car, but it’s nothing as interesting as that. Ah well.
I’d really like to know how much of the entire of TTC’s ad campaigns are actually “designed by committee”. They really are incredibly awful. Even my non-designer friends dislike them greatly, and that’s saying a lot for untrained eyes.
