Well, Reebok, you almost had me. I was all set to check out your website and pick up a new set of kicks after I saw your cleverly misspelled advertisement (See Previous Post). But this morning, I saw the same advertisement, only spelled correctly! Are you trying to take us New Yorkers for fools, or did somebody really misspell the advertisement? I love catchy advertisements, and I love seeing the advertisements that plaster the New York City transit system… but be consistent.

Exhibit B

Wait… you know what? Nevermind. Whoever misspelled the advertisement, should be the president of Reebok! At least he’ll be able to encourage Grammar in New York City!

Daily Moment of Zen? Anyone? Yes? Sweet! Oh… hold on a second. Before I show you the Zen, I have to apologize in advance. If anyone gets grossed out, or offended by today’s Zen, then I’m sorry… Not!! (Borat reference? anyone?)

Gunther, anyone? Ding Ding Dong much?

Oh yeah… the F Train was lame again today. Hooray F Train!

Cleverly Advertised, or Unintentionally Misspelled? That was the question I asked myself when I saw one of Reebok’s new poster advertisements while riding the amazing F train to work this morning. As I’m sure you know, the New York City transit system is flooded with clever and dull advertisements. I’m a little torn between loving and hating the advertisement I saw this morning.

Reebok AdvertisementSo, not everything needs to be done in a New York Minute…. wait.. I mean.. eveything… huh? Wait a sec, did I fail a spelling bee or something?

On first glance, I was a bit confused. Was I supposed to pronounce “Eveything” as a “New Yawker”, to match the stereotypical accent? Was somebody about to get fired for a misspelling that could be seen “eveywhere”? Or was this advertisement put together in a New York Minute? I’m going with the 3rd guess. This is probably one of the most clever advertisements I’ve seen in a long time. It was clever enough to get me to head to Reebok’s website and check out some new kicks. Not only that, but it’s a nice message. Basically, we should all run at our own pace. Live life at our own speed. I like it. Well done Reebok!

And now, it’s time for my Daily Moment of Zen. Have you tried Ecstasy lately?
