For Cutting Yourself!
I’ve opened a category for all the bad ad copy I see around. I love speaking English with people here and I don’t care if they don’t – I am, after all, the odd one out. I do, however, laugh at the ads. It’s just one line, but they can mess it up so badly.
My concern here is that the words look like dripping blood. This ad actually kinda scares me, and I’m not sure that’s the point. Furthermore, color photocopiers are illegal in Sri Lanka (because the Government wants a monopoly on printing worthless money). Even if I wanted to kill someone and photocopy mementos – it’s just not possible. In that sense you’re lying to the serial killer market, and scaring small children, which is perhaps not the best strategy.
*I use the odd title because some bastard on Google does want to know how to photocopy blood. I like to corner particular corners of the search market with useless and often misleading information.
