Indiana wants you to put the Nikes away

OK, not really…wrong cult suicide…but this may actually be one of my favorite advertisement EVER:

Yahoo.com — A northern Indiana restaurant that erected billboards referring to the 1978 Jonestown cult massacre in which more than 900 people died has removed the signs following complaints that the signs were offensive.

Jeff Leslie, vice president of sales and marketing at Hacienda, acknowledged that the billboards were a mistake. He said the South Bend-based company ordered the signs removed less than two weeks into Hacienda’s new advertising campaign.

Can we hire the Hacienda marketing team for MDHT? I think they would KILL it for us.
