Dexy’s Midnight Runners Disease strikes cablecos

Richer-than-God cablecos launch ad campaign to persuade subscribers they’re about to be ass-raped to pay for “local programming,” a category functionally nonexistent outside CBC Television.

Along the way, these ad geniuses succumbed to Dexy’s Midnight Runners Disease, dropping a rather important vocative comma.

Ad headline: Come on Canada. Make your voice heard

ObTeaMakers: The same thing showed up in one of our unwanted, unnecessary, unremunerative banner ads.

Banner ad: COME ON CANADA STOPtheTVTAX.ca

    Y’know, I’d seen that ad all over the place and not noticed the missing comma. That’s hilarious. Good eye, FO!

      It’s about English, but your point is taken. Helpful hint: BDU means broadcast distribution undertaking, viz a cable or satellite distributor of TV signals.
