Yes We Can! Uh, Wax Your Legs?
I always pass by Platinum Strands Salon on Chapman in Orange, and I’ve been baffled ever since they put up this sign outside.
I think it first went up after the November elections. Yes We Can! At first I thought it was just a sign showing their support for Obama, but as I read what’s below it, all I could think of was, “Wait, what?” Full Service Salon? So, they’re basically piggybacking on Obama’s campaign to advertise their services? Yes they can give you a new haircut, wax your legs, AND do your nails!
Piggybacking in advertising is nothing new, I know. This reminded of the poster spotted outside a hair salon in Venice, but this one just seemed … less witty and much more tacky.
