Several weeks ago, I was driving home from work and I noticed a billboard that just had some gigantic 3-D vines around the edges of it. I watched the giant billboard for several days in a row, but nothing changed on it – still just those strange vines.
It reminded me a lot of the time the new casino had some cryptic billboards for weeks before we finally found out what they were all about.
So anyway, back to the vines on the billboard … a few weeks later, some giant tomatoes showed up on the vines.
Now, let me just say that it really irritates me that I’m looking at this thing every day on my drive home to see what will change because I know that’s what the billboard creator wants me to do and I don’t want to do it. But I do it anyway. Every day.
So many weeks later, I finally get to see the final billboard and it’s these huge cans of tomatoes. I don’t remember the exact wording, but the point was that they were fresh. And, much to my chagrin, I do remember the name of the product – Red Gold Tomatoes. Gah! I hate that. They got me right where they want me.
And now I’m “advertising” for them on my blog. Gah! They got me again!

You just fell right into their trap....
