Fake Ad: August 2020

by Jay Forstner

From the September, 2020 issue

First, the facts: 204 people spotted the Fake Ad for Venmore on page 14 of the August Observer. Last month's winner's name, "Kuo," was hidden in the copy, "Mark, you owe ..."

Brian Corcoran was was our randomly chosen winner and will take his $25 gift card to The West End Grill.

"Tricky, tricky, tricky," wrote Tom Chettleburgh. "It took my honor student son to explain the

marK-you-owe. This ad had me snakebit for a while too."

Now, the exciting news: The Fake Ad Book is out and it looks fantastic. The Observer editors and designers did an incredible job of capturing all the fun of our little monthly contest and put it into a convenient, easy-to-handle book form.

Seriously, it took us almost thirty years to produce, but The Fake Ad Book is worth the wait. Visit AnnArborObserver.com/books to order yours.     (end of article)
