A sure bet for what?

5/14/2010:

Hoboken411 reader Yehuda sent in a note and a photoshop last night…

Stop insulting us! Take the banner down!

“I’ve been a resident of uptown Hoboken for a while now, and know very well what to do when there’s even a slight chance for moderate to heavy rain. I move my car to a non-flood zone in town, or at the very worst, to a parking garage. I hate the expense, but it’s a lot cheaper and less hassle than dealing with a flooded out car.

After reading your post earlier today about the awful conditions uptown, the constant floods and treacherous roads, it immediately reminded me of how pissed I get each time I see the obnoxious marketing banner for 800 Madison on the building at 12th and Adams.

Fine, I get it. They want prospective young male customers to think that Hoboken is filled with hot girls sitting poolside, and this is the life they’ve been waiting for. Phony real estate marketing has sucked many residents into believing the city is some kind of utopia. Until they’ve dealt with ongoing sewage seeping into their car and stinking up the neighborhood. Total false advertising!

In a perfect world, the ads would tell the truth. I made a quick rendition of what the banner would look like in that situation. I’d feel better about walking by it every day if was an honest message!”

It’s really saying something special when they market luxury housing like a Hustler magazine. Keep your eye on the ball. This way you can have your brain and your feet in the sewer. To paraphrase Satchel Paige, “Don’t look down, something may be gaining on you”.

No matter how hot the hookup is, the thrill disappears if there’s raw sewage floating outside your building’s door. Yehuda has a valid issue.

Actually, I think the ad is accurate!!!! In my single days which were not that long ago, I hooked up left and right with relatively hot girls in Hoboken. Several girls at the pool at the Applied building near Hudson Tea, sorry, can not think of the name. Any way, just because Yehuda has a tough time hooking up doesn’t mean the rest of us do. YES, I WOULD SAY HOBOKEN IS MY UTOPIA!!!

Just because you could only hook up with “relatively hot” girls doesn’t mean you need to bash Yehuda. [quote comment=”192278″]Actually, I think the ad is accurate!!!!

At least that’s what the ad speaks to me.

I do find Yehuda’s rendition very funny, however.

A sure bet for… the sight of botox, fake tans, veneers, implants, tummy tucks,…
