Planet Fitness Describes Itself as a “Judgement” Free Zone – “Oh, Excuse Me, Mate—are We in Bloody England?”Wednesday, May 25th, 2016
As seen in Frisco:
Oh, it’s one of them deliberate typos?
“On its signs and labels, my gym describes itself as a “judgement free zone.” Oh, excuse me, mate—are we in bloody England? I know it’s slightly anti-intuitive, but here in America, we like our judgment (and our program and our aluminum) just fine, thank you!”
And here’s the view down low:
And here’s the building next door, or at least this is how things used to be – I didn’t notice it last time I was up there…
Oh actually it’s a MUNI bus with an expensive YAHOO wrap, the better for YAHOO to curry favor with SFGov
This kind of ad campaign might have made sense like two decades ago, but what about now?
Myself, I wouldn’t give any more money to the SFMTA without getting some kind of reform in return. So just saying to MUNI, “Here, take our money, keep up the good work, and try to lay off our corporate shuttle bus ‘trial'” might seem to be doing more harm than good.
Of what possible use is this ad and others like it, like on the sides of buses? Yahoo awareness? Or, “Yahoo? What a silly name! What’s that? I’m intrigued.” Or something like, “Oh, Yahoo – I’ve been meaning to get me some of that.”
Yahoo would get more bang for its buck by simply paying off the SFMTA directly, without having to go through advertising middlemen.
And, of course, our local Corporate Shuttle Bus trial continues, with or without sanction from Sacramento…
Anyway, this is How We Live, in 2015.

But let’s keep things in sperpective – sometimes, blight-wise, the cure is worse than the disease
