Earlier this week, I posted on Twitter and Facebook the ad below for this year’s Belmont Stakes. I wrote, “I love this ad. And I know that it’s stuff like this that makes non-New Yorkers hate us…but I still love it.”
The responses to the ad were all favorable…perhaps because those who don’t like it didn’t bother to reply?
Among my favorite responses came from @abbyalger on Twitter, inspiring this post.
I couldn’t find a comparable ad for the Kentucky Derby…if you know of one, please pass it on.
