Since last year at least, Lufthansa has been running some ads in the United States under the slogan "All for this one moment." I first saw then on the Metro-North trains, then on the subway in NY. Some of them are nice, one of them not so much: it shows a man from such a bad point of view that his nostrils, frankly, take up almost two-thirds of the ad. OK, maybe not two-thirds, but more room than a nostril should take up in an ad (unless you are advertising some sort of nostril-cleaning product).
I found a photo of this ad online, so here it goes:
It is a reasonably good campaign, in spite of the big nostrils in the image above. One of the pieces, and the one whose character I could not help identifying with, shows a kid looking out the window of an airport, and in the reflection on the window we see a Lufthansa airplane. The captions in this ad read
"Hundreds of destinations, none of them more welcoming than home."
I apologize for not being able to reproduce this ad, unfortunately I could not find it online. Anyway, a witty vandal in the Boston subway decided to cover some of the letters in this ad, and so the meaning of the ad was considerably changed. I could not help identifying with this new "ad," and I should say I really admire the anonymous writer who created such a fine example of urban poetry:
"Hundreds of nations, none welcoming me."
