Sometimes people need to get more critical in placing their ad posters. Take for example this The Walking Dead Poster placed beside a funeral care.
‘Walking Dead at Co-op Funeralcare’ may have been a better headline, perhaps, for this apparent blunder by outdoor advertising giant Clear Channel.
The firm mounted a roadside ad for Channel 5 zombie drama The Walking Dead on a site in Consett, County Durham. Unfortunately for the Manchester-headquartered Co-op, and any recently bereaved folk in the area, the poster (pictured) adorned the side of the one of the group’s Funeralcare premises.
Eye-catching targeting perhaps (it’s certainly working for Channel 5 in the PR stakes, Ed) but not exactly sensitive, as quickly acknowledged by Clear Channel.
A spokeswomen told the various titles that have reported on the story: “Clear Channel apologises for any offence caused by the unfortunate juxtaposition of this advertisement, which was certainly not intended,” she said.
“We arranged to have it moved right away and it has now come down.”
