Stolen Pammies can be avoided

I was saddened to hear that over 400 life-size cut-outs of Pamela Anderson that appeared in Pizza Hut restaurants across the UK had all been stolen within a few hours and that the last seven cardboard Pammies were then taken from the car of Diane Stafford, Pizza Hut’s marketing manager.

Stolen cut-outs and posters cost advertisers and media owners in lost display time, reposting, broken Adshel frames, etc. There are two solutions:

1 Don’t create attractive posters and cut-outs – Sir George Gardiner now has some spare time available for promotional cut-out work.

2 Use the free services of Ad-ore Mining Company to give your customers the option of paying for a copy of your desirable poster/cut-out. A discreet phone number and offer on the Pammy cut-out would have given the gourmet Romeos a much less embarrassing way of getting their hands on a Pammy.
