Who Is Choosing the Graphics for Supermedia?

I suggest they may want to reconsider this one…

…um, guys?  If you are going to GROW my business, why are you showing someone CUTTING the lawn?!

    But they grew the lawn… :.)

    Definitely NOT an image I’d use, especially while many are “cutting” budgets. Why not use an image of a sprouting seed, flower or maybe just a grassy field with tall grass. Maybe a money bag bursting at the seams?

    Wow. I guess at least it wasn’t a picture of a marijuana plant with a caption saying “supermedia can get you super high results”.

    My first thought when I saw the picture was Edna from the Incredibles…..’NO CAPES!’

    haha… that is a pretty bad oversight on their part…

    Truth is that YOU grow your business and they come and take all the good stuff for themselves.

    What is this ad teaching our children about safety on the job? Look at this guy’s cape flapping in the breeze. I wouldn’t be surprised if the next few shots in the roll shows it getting caught in the blades and chewing our service pro to bits. What’s next, a super guaranteed electrician sticking a fork in an outlet?

    This has the feeling of one of those Highest Paid Person in the Room decisions.

    lol..that’s an inappropriate image to use. It does not represent what they are promising. we do the planting and they’ll do the harvesting. hmmmm….sounds terrible!
