Kenneth Cole board salutes flight 1549 crew


Kenneth Cole, aka the Worst Copywriter in the History of Advertising, just put up this billboard on the West Side Highway in New York, lauding the pilots and crew of US Airways flight 1549 for safely landing the plane in the Hudson River after its engines failed. That everyone on board survived is miraculous, and the flight crew deserve the accolades. A billboard is reasonable—and this one's palatable by Cole's pun-heavy standards. Just let's not see Pez dispensers shaped like Chesley Sullenberger's face, OK?
