Yea yea yea there was a pretty bad storm, it was windy and some trees fell down. The most amazing thing I found about the entire hurricane event this weekend was how obviously and shamelessly some of our largest local corporations exploited it to make themselves look good.
Allstate: Shut up, Allstate. No I don’t need to file a claim so get your banners out of my face and stop giving me your stupid phone number on the radio every 3 commercials. I love the violin music they play in the background like I’m gonna shed a fricking tear for the humanity Allstate showed their customers during the storm. YEAOK.
Cablevision: Optimum business was bragging about how their “superior” network held strong for their “valued customers” during the storm – umm, my tv, internet and phone were out for 2 days. So what, fuck me? Half of your network can withstand wind, but the other half can’t. Congratulations, sign me up.
