Topless bartenders and false advertising

I never ceased to be surprised and impressed by the inventive and fun ways that small businesses find to market their services and products. Take, for example, this simple chalk board sign I came across on the wall of a pub in Kingston upon Thames.

Chalkboard at pub in Kingston upon Thames — Tribus Creative, brand communications for small businessFalse, but amusing, advertising.

It was probably no coincidence that it was April 1st when I saw it. I’d never considered going into that pub before, but I’m thinking about it now — if the sign is anything to go by, the staff have a good sense of humour and know how to have fun.
