Matched!

December's Fake Ad

by Jay Forstner

From the January, 2019 issue

We received 168 entries correctly identifying last month's Fake Ad. It was the "Matched!" ad from the Michigan Family Council on page 86 of the December issue.

The ad, which promised "Free Sex" within a committed relationship, raised quite a few eyebrows--including those of November winner Beth Freese, whose name we'd hidden in the headline (see Calls & letters). And Kathryn Mayer hoped "the two 'models' you used in your 'Michigan Family Council' ad are a real-life couple, and good friends of yours, who will find this hilarious. Otherwise ... yikes." (They'll never know--the "couple" were unrelated stock photos.)

Many Fake Adders said they found the ad only after combing through all the real ads. "I initially thought it was Fresh Forage on page 30, but eventually checked out the website," wrote Lynn Heumann. "Looks great and excited to try. Hope your advertisers know that the Fake Ad contest works!"

Our winner was Jennifer Ziegler--who's taking her gift certificate to Fresh Forage.

To enter this month's contest, find the fake ad in the January issue and follow the instructions in the box at the bottom of the Back Page. The fake ad always contains the name of last month's winner in some form.     (end of article)
