July 12, 2013 – What do “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Philadelphia Sports Clubs, a fitness center in the city of brotherly love have in common? They both hired the right creative writers to get them noticed.
“South Park”, which has been on the air since 1997, is known for quickly responding to current headlines and weaving them into their stories. It looks like PSC is aiming for the same reputation with their advertising campaigns. I’m not sure which agency they use, but their ads certainly keep me amused.
Their latest offering below makes NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden an offer he might not be able to refuse. So what if he doesn’t have a country to call home, he has a place to stay in shape.
During the presidential campaign last year, PSC ran the ad below. It may not have been enough to get the Romney/Ryan ticket elected, but the folks at the Philadelphia Sports Clubs know a winning campaign when they see it.
