Most people are too young to remember an ad campaign run by RJ Reynolds that touted the flavor of Winston cigarettes with the jingle “Winston tastes good, like a cigarette should”. In the ad, the announcer corrects the grammar to “Winston tastes good, as a cigarette should”, but then a jingle comes in with the the incorrect grammar again. It ran for a long time.
Think about that, an ad with grammar as the focus. Today, it seems, we don’t know the difference.
A while back, I was following this beer truck. “Traffic. If only it were as light as your beer.” Well, traffic were real heavy that day. If I would have known traffic were going to be that bad, I might have stayed in bed wondering who proof reads these things.
