Now, if you’re on Twitter, you’ve probably seen most of these ‘spoof ads’ I put out there randomly during the day. But a lot of our readers are not are not online when the ads go up or are anti-social networking(read: cavemen).
So I’ve compiled them here and added one or two. Also because I’ve noted some of you are appropriating these to yourselves. Naughty, naughty. Behave, children.
Anyhow, enjoy and have a good weekend.
This was because of their topless parties. Ehm. Yeah.
Why don’t I ever get invited to these things?
Yes, this was a real typo in a real press release. It didn’t need a picture to be funny, I could’ve just written the words and left it at that.
KFC is finally in Kenya. Oh, rejoice! *blank stare *
I don’t see what the big deal is(no pun intended). But apparently thousands of people queued up for hours to
overpay for fried chicken eat the Colonel’s chicken…over and over again. I walked past there earlier today – weeks after the grand opening – and…yeah, that’s a story for another blog post. Suffice it to say, even on a weekday, you’ll still find a solid line of people waiting to eat there. And to my knowledge, they’re yet to spend a single marketing dollar for all this love.
YU – No Charge
I have decided that Yu is a money laundering scheme. These guys have no intention of making money; just processing it. Free SIM card, free phone calls, free SMS, and now this ridiculous 2 shilling PER HOUR of data. For those abroad, that’s about 2 American cents or 1 pence PER HOUR of data. In a country where you’d be lucky to pay the same per minute. I have a friend who flaunts that he only spends like 20 shillings a week; and that’s because he has to call me. Only reason I haven’t switched to Yu is that I’m scared I may be funding terrorism or selling my soul to the Devil inadvertently. Someone explain to me how they make money. Please.
Orange – 3G+ Everywhere
One network I am with and can speak on freely is Orange. My goodness, these guys have epic timing when it comes to dropping calls. They’re the type to drop the call when a client says “So if you’re OK with these terms, I’ll go ahead and send 10 million shillings right now.” Disconnection. And then you’re unavailable for a few seconds after that. The cool thing though about them is that they’re fairly priced and even when you’re credit runs out, if you keep redialling, or resending a message, it eventually goes through. No idea why or how that works; it just does.
Speaking of unreliable service….
This is what started these spoofs. Kenya Power is notorious for not powering Kenya. I don’t think I need to delve into that, lest Kenya Power reps raid our comment section again. Hehe. They did last time, remember?
That’s all for today. Peace y’all.
