Acronymic Ads are Confusing, Hysterical.


I was on my way to work this morning, walking down the street after my fiscally irresponsible indulgence at Starbucks, when I stopped dead in my tracks. An advertisement on a wooden placard was staring back at me, mocking me and my $3.50 cup of coffee. It read “OMFG.”

Now, I’m not down with the lingo that kids use these days, but I’m pretty sure that means “Orange Macchiato Frappachino Girl.” How did this ad know my gender and what beverage I ordered? Was it an oracle of sorts? And why did it feature two kids having sex in the background?

Upon further research, I learned that I was entirely wrong. It’s actually an advertisement for Gossip Girls. Judging from the ad, I think it’s a show about skanky teenage girls who like to gossip and make out in the back of cabs.

I was a bit disappointed when I found all this out, since I plan on ordering a White Tea Frappachino tomorrow and would have loved to see a billboard at 8:30 in the morning read WTF. LOL.

See the ads here.
