Nuovo kids on the block

Nuovo on 68th

Found this ad in my archives under the heading “Bad Ads to Write About Later.” It’s a stinker but you’ve probably come to that conclusion already. I don’t need to tell you that the models laid out on the grass look like victims of gang violence.

Perp on this one is Fifth Avenue Real Estate Marketing.

    You should really take this act out on the comedy circuit — now that it is safe to publicly talk about RE’s implosion…people could use a little levity

    I’m intrigued by the idea of taking this material to a new medium. As a television series, I imagine it as a story about Vancouverites who struggle to live up to their lifestyle aspirations. The show could get into all sorts of great themes around that.

    They always seem to shy away from saying these places are actually in PoCo or Surrey or Chilliwack, and just talk about how they’re only a 15-minute drive from downtown – on a rocket sled. Where the heck is East Clayton Park and 194 and 68? I am not super familiar with Vancouver so forgive my ignorance. Surrey??

    Here’s an idea… the condohype drinking game!
    You show a series of random condo ads and every time a phrase from a list of overused marketing phrases appears in an ad, e.g. “granite countertops” or “stainless steel appliances”, the word “luxury” or “luxurious”… you drink a shot.
