Hi-Fi Buys is apparently going out of business. I have noticed people standing around on the side of road on Baxter and the Atlanta Highway holding a wood stick with going out of business signs stapled to the stick. What the hell? I think standing on the side of a road holding a stick would be about the most boring thing possible. Is this an effective form of advertising?
And over on Prince yesterday, I saw a truck with ads on the sides and rear. The ads flipped periodically. It looks like the idea is to run the truck around town so motorists can read the ads. Jesus, is there no escaping the hucksters? I didn't pay attention to the names of the companies that purchased these ads, if I had, I would make sure to buy nothing from them.
