BP Wants You To Go Spend Your Money to Stimulate the Gulf
Over the weekend, I was watching TV as I'm wont to do (horrible habit, I know, I'm ditching cable as soon as my Con-cast new subscriber deal runs out and they jack me up to $100 a month for basic cable) and this commercial popped up. Presumably, it promotes Gulf tourism. I sat there (soaking up my fourth beer, admittedly) watching it wondering who on Earth paid for this spot and completely unable to recall what disaster hit the Gulf that would inspire such a balls-out tourism ad.
By the time it is revealed who paid for this "please come spend your money with us" plea, I remember what disaster we have to thank for this.
The video is an ongoing effort of BP to, uh, clean up.
