Via NotBillable comes more ad creep. Yea!
“Kraft Macaroni & Cheese is excited about the possibility of working with the city of Irving, Texas, to be involved in the explosion of Texas Stadium.”
You mean, implosion, right? Or maybe the joy felt by the mayor is more to your liking:
“We’re very proud to form a partnership with such a widely recognized and appreciated brand,” Irving Mayor Herbert Gears said Tuesday. “We wanted to make sure that the world got to experience the demolition of such a historic facility.”
Although my bet is on the Cowboys imploding long before Texas Stadium does next year. (Maybe Wade should push the plunger. Fitting, that.) I’m sure demolition rights are still available for Giants stadium too! Least the Yankees auctioned off all the good parts before the demo started.
Maybe they could act a little less enthusiastic about the chance to tear down an eyesore—or landmark—depending on who you ask. As Coach Bryant said, act like ya been there before. With other stadiums due to come down across the country, there’ll still be more chances for brands to capitalize on fan misery.
You stay Krafty!
