Stupid Advertising & Promotion: Morongo Casino
Personally, I’ve never been much of a gambler. Which admittedly, is strange, since nearly every other vice known to man is something I’ve used and abused. But with gambling, eh. I never have really had much use for casinos except back in the day that I was drinking, because I’d go and sit at the blackjack table and manage to drink free drinks for less than the price they cost in alcohol all night through conservative betting and selective hand-sitting-outing. These days, I can do without all the bells and annoying casino sounds, the smokey rooms, the endless club sandwiches.
So when I see something like this, the ad for the (wait for it) Morongo Casino, I think–well, now, that’s a bit of refreshing truth in advertising. Moron, GO to the casino! Exactly. But you would at least think that they’d try to be sneakier about it. We know they want to target morons, but I mean is ordering them around like that the best way to go? I don’t know. You tell me.
