Best metaphor in advertising 2013?


“Provo, Utah, uses a swimming pool as a concrete visual of how broadband just can’t compete with Google’s high-speed Internet service, which is coming to the city next month. Taken literally, broadband is a homely man wearing a sash, and Google Fiber is a waste of city resources that totally ruins his bathrobe. But really, this ad, released by the city itself, is a clever piece of work. It’s always nice when funny ads are made by people with decent comedic timing.”


Very funny! I wish we had this ad in the UK.
