Blagger’s Blog: Yo!, flamingo, watch the books
“I don’t give a flying flamingo what you think .”
House of Commons Speaker John Bercow amid the now-famously chaotic closing ceremony of the most recent Parliamentary session.
With restaurants and eateries facing ever-stiffer competition for the public’s attention we loved this Yo! Sushi stunt at its Richmond branch. Opting to change the signage to a mouth-filling 121-characters, reflecting the abundant choice on the menu, made for a photogenic, high-impact stunt that still fits in a tweet. Fine work.
