As the hardworking staff at our kissing’ cousin Campaign Outsider has dutifully noted, Legal Sea Foods owner Roger Brokowitz – sorry, Berkowitz – is pretty much as tasteless as his menu when it comes to advertising his fish houses.
Exhibit Umpteen: The latest Legal Sea Foods ad campaign, which enjoyed some Boston Globe $ynergy on Tuesday, and featured this full-page ad in the $tately local broadsheet on Wednesday.
The ad in today’s edition of the Globe is downright dumb.
Even dopier are the campaign’s TV spots (see them here), which don’t even rise to the level of sophomoric.
Maybe it’s time for him to cast his net closer to home.
P.S. Unsurprisingly, the Legal ads have not run in the irony-deficient Boston Herald. Apparently, the readers of the thirsty local tabloid fail to #feelthejerk, er, berk.
Good for them.
