Groovy, but what is the ad for?
amelica on July 1st, 2012 08:11 pm (UTC)
I think it's from a juice commercial
amelica on July 1st, 2012 08:53 pm (UTC)
thank you :)

I ordered myself a print. That's well done.

It seems like one of those fake vintage styled ads, but you really can't be too sure sometimes...

It's a spoof of this ad series from the Florida Citrus Commission.

i figured it was a spoof but approved it anyway as everyone once in awhile we need some 'fun' :D

Maybe the spoofs should be tagged as such? Usually I can tell, but others sometimes can't, apparently, and being the stickler for accurate historical understanding I am, it worries me to think of misinformation being accidentally disseminated.

well i wouldn't want to ENCOURAGE spoofs being posted....that's why on very rare occasions things like this will be allowed....usually if someone reads the comments they'll find it's a spoof.....we've discussed before having such a tag and came to the conclusion that it would just encourage such posting....so we decided not too....

Good point!

what if we had a spoof contest? I might actually be inclined to do some original work for that LOL
amelica on July 2nd, 2012 03:38 am (UTC)
that may be cool
Merry Pseudonymamelia_eve on July 2nd, 2012 09:43 am (UTC)
Great idea. I think this spoof is very well done -- I just wanted to acknowledge the source. Maybe if we do a spoof contest that should be part of the rules, to post the inspiration along with the parody.
Miss Tia's Journalmisstiajournal on July 2nd, 2012 07:45 pm (UTC)
do you think that would confuse people and/or encourage the regular submission of spoof ads?? i know that's why we don't have a spoof ad tag....i am not against having a day or two for spoof ads---made or found, but we'd have to be really clear that it's a special occasional....
Billbitterlawngnome on July 2nd, 2012 08:35 pm (UTC)
Perhaps, as amelia_eve suggests, only allow them if posted together with the original?
Miss Tia's Journalmisstiajournal on July 2nd, 2012 09:00 pm (UTC)
ah, see, i was replying to YOUR comment via email and i hadn't seem amelia_eve's comment....that is a good idea....
Miss Tia's Journalmisstiajournal on July 2nd, 2012 09:01 pm (UTC)
though, do you think it should be a contest or a weekend event? with of course enough heads up to give people time to make ads...we have weekend events thru august, so it wouldn't be til september....just thinking out loud here....

I think a spoof day (call it amnesty) would be better. Requiring posting with a real ad would omit all the non-specific vintage spoofs. Maybe a day and just say 'this day only!'.

OT: What about the "Creepy Smiles" and "Poorly Named Products" ideas?
Miss Tia's Journalmisstiajournal on July 4th, 2012 04:24 am (UTC)
i think it got changed to crocodile smiles and poorly named products and i know there was one other standout, will be our selections to vote on for october, november, december :)

good point re: posting a real ad...i'll post a reminder about americana ads and query our masses about a spoof day and/or weekend....

The original looks more creepy than the vampire!
mjspicemjspice on July 2nd, 2012 12:21 am (UTC)
That's scary & funny as heck.
Morgan Skyemorganskye on July 2nd, 2012 12:58 am (UTC)
Love it!!
skonen_bladesskonen_blades on July 2nd, 2012 07:00 am (UTC)
I do believe I'm going to order me a print of that. Very well done.

Sooooo glad to see my friend Dixie's work getting so much notoriety!! She does amazing work and her work graces the cover of Horror Host Magazine too!
