I’ve seen your billboards all over Detroit.
I know you think you’re cute. Ha ha, says your big, barrel chested mascot. “Never Throw In the Towel” “Bend But Never Break” “Stay Giant, Detroit”
I get what you’re trying to do. A cute wink and a nod about Detroit staying strong because it’s down and out and has some cleaning up to do.
Well, I gotta be honest. Your wink and nod and 6+ month likely million dollars+ ad campaign rings a little hollow as I commute past crumbling overpasses, underfunded schools, and a city that doesn’t need your ad campaign disguised as encouragement.
Detroit did break. It broke. Bankruptcy.

Seriously however much you spent on billboards could make a huge impact on Detroit.
You could even say… giant.
