Funny Mother’s Day Promotions
Did anyone else notice that the upcoming ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ remake will make its NBC debut on Mother’s Day? I find that hysterically funny. Mother’s Day brings to mind several things. Sentimentality is one of them. Humor usually isn’t, but who says Mother’s Day has to always be serious? Here are three hilarious Mother’s Day promotions that companies actually sponsored.
Moms Eat Free at Hooters
Hooters is probably not the restaurant of choice for most moms on Mother’s Day. Nonetheless, the infamous eatery known for its wings (just like how ‘Playboy’ is known for its articles) offered free meals to moms as long as they were “accompanied by one or more of her offspring.”
Mother’s Day Photography Special
I’m not sure the name of the company, but I saw a great photo online of a photography studio’s Mother’s Day special: shoot the kids, hang the family, frame the wife. Happy Mother’s Day!
‘Psycho’ Movie Marathon
This one is probably my favorite of all-time. You’ve heard of the TBS annual “24 Hours of A Christmas Story” movie marathon. This is sort of like that, only with a slightly twisted sense of humor. Last year, Encore Suspense aired a marathon of ‘Psycho’ on Mother’s Day. After all, a boy’s best friend is his mother.
For those that don’t know, Mother’s Day always falls on the second Sunday in May. This year, the holiday falls on May 11. Don’t forget your mom… and choose a better restaurant to take her than Hooters.
