Posted by Eric Frye & filed under Friday Fun, Social Media Marketing.

or this Friday Funk, the joke’s on us!  As online marketers we sometimes take ourselves too seriously– brand positioning, scalable solutions, social currency– it all loses meaning when the humor sets in. This hilarious submit-your-own-caption website, “Things Real People Don’t Say About Advertising” is cracking us up today.  Check it out!

Some of Upright employees’ favorite lines from this site:

  • “That viral made me LOL so hard I think I’ll buy the car that was in it.”
  • “It looks like a link but it doesn’t say click here, what do I do?”
  • “I can only refer 5 friends? But the rest will be so upset…”
  • “This website’s music is great– turn it up!”
