My Mum to Public Relations People: Shut Up, You Bozos!

More than often, we get dumb press releases here in Gizmodo. This one starts with the following: “MAKE MUM THE ENVY OF THE BLOCK WITH STYLISH WESTINGHOUSE LCD HDTVs.” It goes downhill from there.


“Flowers and Dinners Are Just Not Enough — Show Your Mum How Special. She Really Is With Sleek LCD HDTVs from Westinghouse”

To which, my mum laughs and asks me if these people are on drugs: “Why would I like a TV as a Mother’s Day present? Are these people stupid?” As you can see in the capture, the rest of the copy is equally as retarded. Do they really think mums want “sleek” LCD HDTVs? Do some PR people have mums? Maybe they were abandoned under a bridge? Or do they actually hate mums?

I want answers, PR people, answers!

[Blam: Hey, wait! My Mum asked for an LCD TV for mothers day!]
[JD: The old woman living in the cardboard box next to your home is not your mum, Brian]
