They’re back…

That’s a relief.

Speaking of balls, Comcast had some to send me this direct mail piece last week:

Now this is a company that purports to want to be my one technology provider.  Phone, cable, high speed internet…the whole shebang.  You’d think they’d be a little more up-to-date with their marketing communications.

Hmm…where’s the Bat Building?   The arena?  And let’s take a closer look at that hotel in the middle:

What’s that say?  The Stouffer?!  That’s been the Renaissance Hotel since at least 1995.  Nice.

Hey Comcast, why don’t you come off of some of that hundred fifty bucks I already send you every month and hire Chris Wage to take you some good pictures of downtown from this millennium rather than using crappy old stock photography?

    Oh, wow. That is low-budget. Reminds me of how my former employer tried to get away with just one beach photo to represent South Florida, Northwest Florida, St. Simons Island, Hilton Head, Bethany Beach, Delaware and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. All distinctively different-looking beaches. One photo to represent them all. And a stock photo at that. Made me want to cry.
