(Your City Name Here) redux

Bank of America ad

It’s already a pet peeve of mine when advertisers do a quick “insert name of city here” to try and make you feel like they have some sort of connection to your city. But the best stock photo that Bank of America could come up with to evoke Chicago-ness is the skyline with some dorks on Segways in the foreground? Seriously?

    No kidding. They should have used those images from GreaseFreak.

    That’s how we kick it, on a Segway, along a mysterious pier that floats parallel to the lakefront.
