[ # ] These PSAs from LA Metro are ridiculously awful
October 12th, 2017 under Ads




LA Metro might literally go through Hollywood, but that does not mean they went through Hollywood to create PSAs for them. So many Hollywood types or film students would have loved to come up with ads for the mode of transportation they take when they do not want to deal with LA traffic, but they did not contact any of them.

Instead they went through, I do not know who, and are using these Japanese like ads to get riders to stop eating on the bus, hogging the aisle on the train and taking up more than one seat. They are are so awful that you have to wonder if they are joke. If they are not, then LA Metro should not admit it.

I had an advertising teacher once tell me that my parents did drugs and that was the only explanation. Therefore, you know my advertising ideas were wacky. As wacky as they were, they were not this outrageous.

Now having said that, I also learned that a good ad is one you do not forget. I will not be forgetting these PSAs anytime and I cannot believe I watched them all the way through. Does it make me want to be Super Kind on mass transit? Nope, it makes me want to take my car everywhere I go. In fact, in the 16 years I have lived here, I have never taken the bus or train. That is just the NYer in me.

What do you think of there 3 PSAs that LA Metro paid too much money to produce?
