New Wordperfect Office Suite advertising
Check it out at this location — www.seewhogotfired.com. I’m not sure, but this might be some of the worst advertising I’ve ever seen.
- The humour is lame, or even tasteless (in the case of the clown at the funeral parlour). Most of it is profoundly unfunny. For instance, one spot has the CEO of the company giving guys wedgies for making the wrong office product purchase choice, and then firing them.
- The messages are, to be polite, obscure. Feature rich, suite, value, and compatible. Compared to what?
The message of the overall campaign seems to be that you could get fired for choosing Microsoft Office because it costs too much. Huh?
