Barf Bag Ads

The geniuses working in the American airline industry are on a roll. Bankruptcies, massive cost-cutting, and now -- putting ads on barf bags.

Starting this September, US Airways - a company that filed for bankruptcy just two years ago - will feature advertisements on their air sickness bags. You know your company is still fucked if you look to vomit for revenue opportunity.

According to an airline consulting group:
"Little things like that work ... Barf bags have a lot of shelf life -- people aren't barfing as much in planes as they used to."
After seeing the ads, I think barfing might make a come back.

I can't wait to see what the bags will actually advertise. It would make perfect sense to have an ad for Dramamine. But I'm thinking an ad for Paris Hilton's new album might be more appropriate.

what an idea! Vomit + ads = $$

Next, they need to put ads on respirators and syringes...

They're putting ads on eggs soon. Not on planes, but in the supermarket. I forgot the product already though, so some good that did.
