What is it with carpet and flooring vendors’ skimpy version of the venerable tradition of commercial jingles? It seems all they do is repeat their name and phone number. I spent the last 20 years seeing and hearing
1-800-588-2300, Empire (Today!)
Now, since moving to Boston, the TV constantly assaults me with
877-241 (beep beep beep beep!) LUNA
This minimalist approach is the inverse of the poetry I celebrate in this blog’s occasional jingle of the day. About the only thing worse would be just telling you the name of the company …
We are Farmers!
Bum da-bum bum bum bum bum!
Absurd. If you want to play that game, Homer Simpson did it better when he had a snow plowing business:
Call Mr. Plow, that’s my name,
That name again is Mr. Plow!
