The Bixi is here, and (surprise) Bixi LIES unmasked
Now that the Bixi worlds-most-expensive bike rental is finally operational, we can thank La Presse newspaper for revealing that a pro-bixi blog A Velo Citoyens supposedly by three keen citizens, has turned out to be a fabrication of an advertising company. The three keen citizens turned out to be paid employees of the ad agency, and were fake-people.
We can thank La Presse and Patrick Lagacé for revealing this amazing fact. Under the title Bixi, blogue et bullshit Patrick tears them a new one. Good work Patrick.
Lies, lies, lies... Why do they think that lying to us is a good idea? Because we can't handle the truth? hardly, it's because they think we are gullible fools.
And that level of lack of respect should precipitate some serious blowback. Who OK'ed this idea of deceiving the public, with out tax dollars?
All I can conclude is that the ad company, the bixi-operating company Stationnement Montreal, and the city of Montreal are full of people best described as COMPLETE SCUMBAGS.
We start the condemnation with the owner of the Ad agency, Andrew Morrow, and his company Morrow Communications, at 1434, rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest. Telephone is 514-282-2080 and the email is email@example.com
We would like to know if viral marketing is illegal, because the entire concept is based on deceptive advertising. If we had our way, our medieval-embarrassment-device would be getting much use.
Anyway, this shitstorm has hit bixi just when you'd think good publicity would be most wanted, and instead the media is talking about lies, lies, lies. The citizens deserve better from our elected officials. A lot better.
We have an ad campaign for the Bixi:
Bixi: the world's slowest $2000 bicycle!
