In which Share Better SF takes Airbnb to task. I, for one, am happy that they signed it “San Franciscans.”
You might remember last year when this off-the-mark real Airbnb ad struck a cord and many memes were born. Though Airbnb apologized for the ads at the time, I think it’s safe to say this was not the end of it.
Ahhhhh … remember when? When, you ask? Back when we eagerly upgraded from clunky (but oh-so-awesome) Walkmans and Discmans to Apple’s shiny, sleek, magical “iPod”? Back when, well, first of all, back when we read books. And there were these dinosaurs roaming our cityscape called “bookstores.” And we could morph into Scully or Mulder with a freakin’ flappin’ flip-phone.
Those were the days, indeed.
Muni rider Jack rode a 6-Parnassus last week and his bus had ads for ALL. OF. THE. ABOVE. A true mobile museum, that.
If you had to peg a date for these ads, what would your guess be? Mine is late-2004. Like, maybe right after Bush the Younger was re-(but really for the first time)-elected*.
I saw these ads on a 6-Parnassus yesterday. Yep, in 2016. It hit me right in the feels. If you’ll excuse me, I’ll be listening to From Under The Cork Tree.
Hey Muni Diaries, my brother sent me this photo of a J-Church Breda car that accidentally turned right onto Market yesterday. It makes you wonder—after the new trains come, will the Bredas be historical F-line material?
