Advertisement on the NYC Subway for a law firm — descriptions of cases they’ve won for damage from lead poisoning and medical malpractice — and a slogan, in quotes: “We fight for kids with brain damage.” Wow. And the ad includes a silhouette of a man with a top hat and boxing gloves — “fighting,” I suppose, “for kids with brain damage.” Wow. And it gets better. Because I went to their website, Ambulance-Chasing Law Firm’s Website, where they explain the top hat / boxing glove man: “We?re proud of being known as fighters for our clients rights and the [firm’s] fighting spirit is embodied in our logo and our mascot, Seamus, our Fighting Irish Leprechaun.” You think I’m kidding? Check out the site.
Satan’s Landromat (love the blog title) has photos of more subway ads for personal injury lawyers. Note how happy the people look while falling off a ladder and crashing head-first through a car windshield.
I’m glad I’m not working for Lionel Hutz this summer.
Update: Satan’s Laundromat collects all seven ads.
