    Well it is definately original. It made me laugh. Its all about standing out from the crowd and that definately stands out. Ingenious idea, not sure how well it will work.

  • It's an attention-getter for sure, but it doesn't blow my hair back, then again, I'm sure I wasn't the target audience for this place (even though I AM looking for a place in LA).

    So what was the subject line for this ad? Curious.

  • Yeah, I don't see it. It's funny and everything, but it's nothing that makes me go "WOW, I REALLY need to go check out that apartment!"

        ALL copy is subjective and there is not one advertisement on
        this earth someone would not say sucked.

        If the place rented fast, she did a good job... either way
        look at the exposure. AWESOME

    Original in lots of ways and I am sure there are going to be more and more adds like this one, because such thug way of speaking is turning into a standart internet meme, but it really made me laugh.
