Oh, God bless the advertising geniuses who are handling Taffo Funeral Services’ ad campaign. Seriously. At this point, there’s nothing else for me to do but to bow humbly down in reverence to your ability to provoke subtle sarcasm and irony from such a morbid subject.
It reads: “Are you sure you don’t have strangers in your home?”
And then, the tagline, to seal the deal: “Cremation. Get extra assurance.”
Once again affirming that Taffo offers “certified cremations,” because, apparently, it’s a little “iffy” in this whole cremation world, as to whether the ashes you get are actually the ones you expected to get.
Don’t ask me how they intend to prove you got the right ashes, or why this is important. But I will say, as an advertising graduate, they are geniuses. Look at how they took a total anonymous product and taboo subject, and made it relevant, unique, and eye-catching. As if anyone truly even cares besides me. But, at least Taffo F.S. is making the world safe for those who want Uncle Giuseppe to be Uncle Giuseppe up there on the mantel.
Good God. Do people still really do this? Put urns of ashes on mantels? Yikes. Spread me over Tibet or something.
