A Farce United... In the Depths of Depression

12/22/2008 at 1:08pm EST

As The Universal Cynic reminded her readers this morning, I was featured as one the members of the “We Are All Canucks” ad campaign around Vancouver the last few months. But TUC mentions this not simply to mock me (she’s nice that way) but because she and her band of Senators bloggers were inspired:

The OBC, familiar with this marketing scheme and depressed by the state of its own franchise, decided it was time for a bit of a Sens-flavoured spin. Six photos, one from each member, representing our current state of mind—however pathetic and alcohol-soaked it may be. We’ve entitled this pictorial monstrosity, “A Farce United”. (This is a play on the Sens’ current slogan, “A Force United”. Get it? Get it? Oh, Christ…)

You have to check out A Farce United, as it unfolds at The Universal Cynic, Scarlett Ice, Sens at Land’s End, Five for Smiting and Hockey Schlock.

A marketing campaign gone hilariously awry.
