Which entity is doing a better job exploiting the “2 ____, 1 ____” Internet meme – is it this shocking new ad from Quiznos or is it the new 415-based collaboration “2 Girls, 1 Queen”?
First up is the sandwich ad. It’s appalling. It seems to grow more appalling upon each successive viewing, particularly so in high-rez, full-screen mode. SFW but you should probably be working at work anyway, right? So choose wisely.
Compare that with 2 Girls, 1 Queen from Elaine Santore, Aimee Ellis, and Marqus Fontenot:
“Welcome to 2 Girls, 1 Queen!
2 Girls, 1 Queen is a collaboration between former Fog City Journal columnist and hair accessories designer Elaine Santore, SF native, dancer, organizer and political consultant Aimee Ellis and Our Queen, Marqus Fontenot.
We’re launching 2 Girls, 1 Queen (not to be confused with a certain graphic viral video!) because we wanted to create a media platform for young, emerging artists involved in dance, fashion, political activism, music, civil rights, GLBT culture, social networking, philanthropy, entertainment and comedy.
Tough economic times call for a refocus of priorities to art, culture, and charity work. We love San Francisco and want to bring you content representing everything unique to our fair city and its past, present and future.
In the coming weeks, we will be posting information about appearances, videos, projects, events, and individual bios of our team. Consider this blog a small taste of things to come.
We hope you’ll join us!
It’s a tie! Both have exploited the “2 ____, 1 ____” Internet meme equally well.
