The kids at my high school were super non-materialistic. You didn’t get made fun of if you didn’t have a car, if had to work to help out your family, or if you sold bootleg candy at “nutrition.” We even had a special (read:ghettofab) pronunciation system to let everyone know if you were wearing knock-offs. Knock-off Versace = VERRSAYCE, knock-off Gucci = GOOSEE, etc. As in, “Like my VERRSAYCE sunglasses? I got them in China Town for $5.” Freal.
We also had after-school dance battles in the parking lot everyday at 6pm. Still, freal.
That’s why I got really excited when I saw this Facebook ad. I am thinking that Los-angeles, hopefully pronounced: LOS ANJEALOUS, is the China Town version of Los Angeles. Granted, it would be hella satisfying to do a sassy snap with those nails while saying, “LOS ANJEALOUS” and then saunter away. A girl can dream.
Also, I hope Groupon has better copywriters than this ad copy suggests. To be fair, I don’t think this is a real ad for them — I wasn’t brave enough to click on it to prove otherwise. I wasn’t brave enough to enter any of those dance contests at my high school, either. :(.
