You have to hand it to the folks at WGN-TV for a truly whacky station promotion for its morning team that makes fun of themselves and takes some direct shots at their competitors in the Chicago market in a hilarious manner.
It ends with the tag line, “We put the suck in succceed.”
The station promo (below) is extremely creative and urges viewers to tune into the station’s morning show for its “robots, transvestites, giant vegetables, and lots of explosives.”
One might give the WGN folks high marks for their creativity. However, it seems very likely the station “borrowed” the idea from the “Dollar Shave Club” video (also below) that has turned into an Internet sensation with nearly 5 million views.
See any similarities? Thought so.
