Hey Honda- Hashtag This!
Once I got past this guy's truly awful makeup job, I was able to concentrate on the things that really annoyed me about this chapter of Honda's Summer Hashtag Clearance Hashtag Event In Which Customers Hashtag Inexplicably Tweet their car issues Hashtag to random car salesmen. Hashtag.
First, Maddiewhatever really wants an SUV, but her hashtag (groan) is "moneyprobzzz." Hey, Maddie? If you've got "moneyprobzzz" (I hate you) maybe you shouldn't be trying to figure out how you can pull off an SUV right now, ok? Seriously, "moneyprobzz" and "I want an SUV" don't really connect together logically in my book.
Except, of course, it kind of does- I suspect that the reason why "Maddie" has "moneybrobzzz" is because she's very quick to translate her wants into realities, creating more...um..."moneyprobzzz."
Second- raise your hand if you'd just as soon never hear the word "hashtag" again. I mean, can someone please come up with a shorthand for it?
Third- Why are people sending these tweets to Honda? Is there some contest going on in which Honda is picking the ones which best butcher the English language to feature on their stupid ads? Is there a free Honda involved? Because who doesn't have moneyprobzzz now and then?
Fourth- Moneybrobzzz. I really want to hurt you right now, Maddie. But I'll take comfort in the idea that you will be suffering enough soon, having rushed off to Honda to sign up for a sweet lease deal on a new SUV.
