Yet another baffling ad for the Radio 2 online stream, which these guys appear to be standing in.

Oriental dude and white dude carry a table with a computer monitor across a lake

And can’t you just hear the voice of PromoGit Jeremy Harris reading out the ad copy?

We love music as much as you do. Get CBC Radio 2 the way you want it this summer. Enjoy live streaming music, Concerts on Demand, and Canada Live Podcasts [capitalization sic] – right from our Web site. It’s commercial-free music you won’t find anywhere else.

    I wonder if their PR agency, Media Profile, is going to lose the contract and is showing spite with bad adverts.
    They can’t alienate any more with CBC Radio and its PromoGit, along with the disastrous changes to Radio 1.99999. [ See their trumpet blowing at : ]

    One could call Media Profile, Toronto 416-342-1818; (Mobile) 416-859-5870 but like CBC Management, they fly tangentally to the truth.

    One can read more cant about Media Profile such as: “The Media Profile Distinction, setting us apart one campaign at a time” 06/08/2009
    “PR agency Media Profile stepped out of the shadows today, revealing a bold new look, feel and brand architecture….” etc.

    Those guys look really uncomfortable. Is that what R2 is trying to project? Play our uninterrupted stream and you too can look uncomfortable! Be happily lulled into sedation as your boss moves your desk into a freakin’ river!

    (Notice the one guy seems to be saying “What’s that, boss? Deeper? OK, pal…he said we need to move back another twenty feet” and the other guy is thinking “Is this asshole for reals?”)
