Dead again in new Philadelphia tourism ads

Uwishunu Philadelphia’s new uwishunu tourism campaign extends, at least to my eye, the funereal themes that have previously appeared in ads for the city’s attractions. In the latest effort, we’re invited to ponder what’s going on inside various locked and gated venues, all of which resemble cemeteries or vampire castles. The ad here features some sort of hook dangling from a wall. It looks like a torture device. (Don’t try to get in. Run away!) See two more ads here. The overposed models are creepy, as though they’re promoting Transylvania. All that said, iduwishinu what is behind those gates. If it’s a human sacrifice and/or karaoke night, book my flight to Philly!
