Would you rent a luxury apartment if Cole Hamels told you to?

Maybe I would in the abstract, but after seeing this ad, I think I’d stay as far away from him as possible.  The first one is bad enough, but where did those kids come from in the second?

Personally, I’d like to see this whole campaign reimagined with the 1993 Phillies. Picture Darren Daulton in Cole Hamels’ place and John Kruk posing like Heidi Hamels.

You’re welcome.

    “Your welcome”?? Really?
    C’mon. Your better than that.

    Oh my god, that was terrible. I’m sorry, Editor. It’s fixed now.
    As punishment, I will go run 50 laps around the library.

    “C’mon. Your better than that.”
    It should be “You’re better than that.”

    @Joe: Irony comprehension FAIL.
    @craig, I think the kids are representative of what the Hamels envision their family to look like a few years from now. She’s pregnant with a boy and they’re planning an adoption of a baby girl from Ethiopia, so in about 4-5 years, their family will look a lot like that. Although perhaps by then he’ll have shaved and her fake boobs will have started to sag.

    Wait, isn’t the purpose of the editor to catch this stuff before it goes to print/gets posted? You SHOULD be better than that.

    SORRY 😦

    Ads like that make me glad that I moved from Philly.
    If you’re going to suggest prior Phillies, I think Lenny Dyskstra would be perfect for that ad.

    Hi, It is likely this entry may be off topic but anyways, I’ve been surfing around your site and it seems extremely awesome. It is obvious you know your subject and you seem passionate about it. I’m constructing a fresh website and I’m striving to make it look great, and also present high quality posts.

    I have a lot like Prague from Czech Republic. Although it does not seem to have this much in common. I recommend her first visit and see the architecture.
