New York New York Las Vegas Hotel & Casino: Don’t Think of an Elephant

ad_135

Quick, don’t think of an elephant.

In the same way that you just thought of an elephant, this ad for New York New York Las Vegas Hotel & Casino invokes the smell of hot garbage. The juxtaposition of the image of a young woman with hot garbage is sure to attract many visitors to the fake Disneyland version of New York.

It’s not real, but at least it doesn’t have any smell. Here are a few other things it doesn’t have: Central Park, Gramercy Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Natural History, the Staten Island Ferry, Gray’s Papaya, the Lower East Side, or New York pizza.

However, in these troubled economic times, if you have money to blow on gambling, there aren’t any casinos in the real New York, so you might prefer Vegas. The odds are that you’ll lose money, but you won”t have to worry about that hot garbage smell.

  1. Well the ad gets your attention. The text would have had more impact if it would have said, “All the fun of New York without the smell of hot garbage.” Or, “New York-New York,” smells better than this ad.”
