    Default Controversial MSG Ads

    I really like MSG and their broadcasts but sometimes i wonder if they're rather stupid or have a really twisted sense of humor

    Earlier this week, the New York Post reported that the network, under the same business umbrella that includes the Knicks, would pull a particular ad after a representative admitted it was "bad judgment" and apologized to anyone who was offended.

    "It's Friday night," the ad said. "You can either see a Broadway harness malfunctioning or you can watch real men fly."

    The ad was referring to the Broadway show "Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark," in which actors have been injured, including Christopher Tierney, who fell 30 feet from the air into the orchestra pit in December 2010. Tierney, who sustained four broken ribs and fractured three of his vertebrae, returned to the show four months later.

    The ironic part of the ad, which the Post pointed out, was that it featured Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire, who is out at least a month and a half after having a procedure done on his frequently injured left knee.

    That's a bit wrong, for sure. And putting STAT on it is just retarded.

    Another instance of the utter cluelessness that is the Knicks Marketing Department. I'm actually writing about this at the moment. How hard is it to create a good Knicks marketing campaign?
