Internet banners are rarely featured on Fire That Agency!, but hey, I rarely contribute to this blog that I've neglected for so very long, so it's a fitting occasion for a comeback.
I saw this online ad last week and it compelled me to return here and ask you just WHAT THE FUCK DOES THE FRIGHTENED OLD MAN HAVE TO DO WITH A SCHOOL LOAN?!
Oh Agency, you are so fucking fired.
I understand that if I earn less than $45,000 a year, I'm totally going to need a grant to go back to school. I'm not sure how clicking on my state will help, but where you really lose me is with the photo.
What exactly is going on here? Grandpa's not going to the bathroom on his own, so I doubt he's up for college. So is this the guy who's granting money to qualified people? Do I have to rob this scared little man for tuition?!
Poor fella doesn't look well at all. Maybe he's just as confused as I am? "How the hell did my photo end up on the innerwebs? Goddamn kids!"
I guess on some level this works because they definitely got my attention. They also got me to come out of semi-retirement to tell the rest of you about it.
