Remember when our worst complaint about Bernie and Phyl's ads was their jingle?
Several months after the furniture chain plastered subway trains with mildly risque ads about how many people their couches could handle, they've introduced new ads that cut right to the chase: If you copulate or die in bed, you better hope you do so in one of theirs.
The ads are having the reverse effect on some people, such as John Overholt, who, after seeing the death one, decided:
I would now rather die than shop at Bernie & Phyl's.
Josh L. saw that ad, too:
gave me unpleasant memories of watching a relative die in hospice so uh thx phyll
And then there was the time Legal Seafood had T ads pulled because they said Green Line drivers had faces like halibuts.
