Title: I can get advertisements of our design, within reason, on the big screen.
Post by: PoFP on May 19, 2015, 11:12:24 pm
So, if you looked at my post on the OPEN BAR, you'd know I work at a movie theater. Being a respectable worker at this little movie theater grants me the privilege of working completely by myself two days out of the week. Not only that, but it gets me direct connections to people who can put advertisements in the pre-show of any movie we want. Or, on my alone days, maybe I can put an ad or two of our design in the previews. That's as soon as I can get some documentation on the projection screen and movie server equipment.

Even if the placement of ads in the previews isn't viable due to some inescapable legal issues (I'm willing to break a few laws to get some shit put into the previews. But only if I know I can get away with it.), then I can still get a decent-sized audience for any cards or posters that we may wanna put up. Any suggestions? Project ideas? Posters/card ideas?

This is QG's stomping ground, and she has a good sense of just how far you can push this kinda thing.

Ahem, sorry.

Please give me the exact dimensions of the ad space available and any restrictions on content.

I'll get the dimensions and get back to you.

It's a local movie theater in a conservative town consisting of a large senior population. In order to refrain from pissing off the natives (Dip-spit is hard to clean off of these movie theater floors, believe it or not.), I would stay away from left-wing ideas, dead fetus jokes (Dead BABY jokes don't have to do with abortions, so they're ok), Reagan, and the 2nd Amendment.



EDIT: Apparently we should stay away from Bigfoot jokes, too. My conservative Republican Catholic family didn't like this when I posted it on Facebook:

Yes, it was obviously bigfoot they were objecting to.   :lulz:

Maybe if Bigfoot was a she they wouldn't find it so objectionable?

Not entirely sure what's meant by "left wing" in this context. Any chance you could meander through the last 6 or 7 pages of the Big Words thread and let me know if any of that content would work?

Whaaat? Nooooooo   :lulz:

I find it weird that they didn't see it as "I resisted," considering he "TRIED to suck my dick." Attempt and failure. They just can't stand the thought of my dick being near any male's mouth for any amount of time or under any circumstance.

Makes me wanna put gigabytes of hardcore gay porno on their computers while everyone is distracted singing Happy Birthday to Jesus at Christmas (Yes, they fucking do that. Right by the fucking table that my Dad and I sit at. Every fucking year.).

When I get the time, I'll give that thread a look-through. I might have to go to work on my day off today. Which actually means I may get the dimensions earlier than expected.  :)


EDIT: I took a look at it, and I like any references to "The Management" because I was thinking about using that as a theme for other propaganda there as well. For example a sign above the bathroom door that says "Please kick door after closing. Thanks, [insert blank line] The Management." (I don't remember if that was made by someone here, like Cramulus, or something, or if it came from RAW's "The Sex Magicians.").

By "left wing," I mean anything a Democrat would say. Don't talk about anything Reagan would be against. I would be cleaning up dip-spit in the theater for months. Oh, and probably no foul language. Unless you can be "dirty" without being blunt about it, somehow.

Also, I would like to mention that we have a place for posters and advertisements on our ticket box window where none of our employees ever see them unless they're taking them down to replace them. I'm looking for shock-and-awe. I want high weirdness. I WANT FUCKING PTERODACTYLS. AND BY FUCKING PTERODACTYLS, I MEAN TWO PTERODACTYLS FUCKING. THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE STRAIGHT.

In all honesty, though, I just want people to be confused, not enlightened. I'm not looking for stuff that makes you think for yourself. I want stuff that makes you wanna re-read shit because "Did I just fucking read that correctly? What the fuck does that even mean? I guess I'll blow a kiss at my favorite movie poster. It says I'll get 20 points."  :lol:
