I dunno, I kinda laughed at that billboard. If I was their advertising team however, I’d have picked a less touchy subject for fear of pissing off half my potential customers. They should take note, mixing religion, politics and business never works out.
Â NEW YORK They’re ads you may have seen around the New York City. They’re supposed to be promoting storage, but they have a political and comical edge to them.
But their latest ad doesn’t have too many people laughing.
Its billboards have always been edgy, but has Manhattan Mini Storage gone over the edge?
The ad causing controversy depicts a coat hanger and takes a stance on abortion, along with the slogan: “Your closet space is shrinking as fast as her right to choose.”
Needless to say, it didn’t take long for the backlash to come.
“These billboards, we think they’re absolutely disgusting,” said Kiera McCaffrey of the Catholic League.
“Or one thing, it’s strange enough that this company feels the need to advertise their pro-abortion stance on their billboards for mini-storage units, but the fact that they have to do it in so vile a way.”
