One day you'll wake up and there'll be advertising on police cars

I always saw Matt Good as a visionary and this clinches it. We really did see advertising on police cars the other day. Okay, it was actually a police SUV, but same diff ...

I'm surprised it hasn't happened sooner. There's always police cars going around ... and there's no such thing as bad publicity.

And you just know they'll use the same argument schools have been using- "but we're underfunded". Well screw that- schools and police cars got along up until the past 10 years or so. If the government is underfunding schools and the police, something's gone wrong. Especially in Alberta. Are you all gazillionaires there?

Just a matter of time is right...what's worse, the police SUV, or the advert? I choose c, Alex, both.

Wait, I just realized jeopardy isn't multiple choice. You get the pic.

I guess to be fair I should mention that the advertising was for police recruitment, so it kinda makes sense. It was still a little startling, though.

As long as they spell your name right, Will ...

We are indeed all gazillionaires here, John, each and every one of us. Actually, the city of Calgary in general is a victim of its own success - businesses are closing because of lack of workers because there are so many jobs. And with 150 people moving to Calgary each and every day, the infrastructure is horribly inadequate.


I think Jeopardy should be mutliple choice, Allison. I'd stand a chance then, as I am a good guesser.
I can see the SUV in the winter, as they don't clear the roads here much (they wait for a chinook to do that for them, so you want your 4-wheel drive), but not neccessary in the summer.

You've answered my question - "what was the ad for". I was picturing Dunkin' Donuts.

sometimes the advertising is a sponsorship thng...we have a pt cruiser that we use as a fire prevention public relations vehicle, it goes to schools etc....the local chrysler dealer donated a 5 yr lease on it, insurance company doanted the insurance, sign company put graphics on for free....thus they get their logo space...win-win situation for all

Dunkin Donuts! Oooo SNAP, Deb!

It was probably something along those lines, Kelly. It was an ad for police recruitment, so it was actually a legitimate and worthy endeavour. It's just that the minute we saw it, Eva and I both started singing "Advertising on Police Cars" and it was just too fun to pass up.

I was hoping you weren't serious.

I shouldn't be surprised though, should I? Soon there'll be ads on cop cars for erectile dysfunction and miracle weight loss drugs.

Subliminal message: Don't want to get arrested? Get boners and lose weight.

"Subliminal message: Don't want to get arrested? Get boners and lose weight." - Alana you slay me!

Must use this as today's quote, if I may. I'm still giggling.

Wonder what Matt Good thinks of these ads, eh?
