no, this post is not in reference to a bad eighties movie with andrew mccarthy*.

did anybody catch the mannequins installed on piedmont avenue to advertise the eon at lindbergh condo building?

i didn’t, but Atlanta INtown – IN The Loop did and it looked pretty cool. basically the company’s advertising firm put up over 100 mannequins on piedmont road, shocking and confusing passersby.

pretty neat and they even made a video of the installation (on, of course, youtube) which is embedded after the jump.

ah, guerrilla marketing. who could do without it?

    I saw the mannequins and thought Eon was a temp agency that hired UGA grads.

    Oh, how smart. Atlanta drivers are bad enough without some kind of road distraction like that.

    Saw this while stuck in traffic a few weeks ago and thought “oooh a silent protest!” and was very disappointed to find it otherwise upon closer inspection.
