Fruit Ads

I went to the grocery store to pick up some food on Monday and was amazed that when I picked out some oranges, they had advertisements on them!

Perhaps I’ve totally overlooked this phenomenon, but when did they start advertising things like “The Grinch, out NOW on VHS and DVD!” on a tiny sticker on a piece of fruit? What price does this sort of space go for? Can it be the least bit effective?

(Scary) Stan Freberg doesn’t like them, and either does Zak Klobucher. And of course the home of bad ads, BadAds.org, despises it.

I think the only thing more inane would be advertising in the sand at a beach. Oh wait

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
