Written Well Not Agency Website Is

agency)copy_bad.jpg

We all know that an agency's own website usually falls to the bottom of the list when it comes to priorities but the creators of this Indian agency's website forgot to bother with basic copywriting, proofreading, translation and, well, just about everything else when it crafted its homepage verbiage. Yes, yes, we shouldn't pick on a company for not knowing English when we Americans are the worst offenders at knowing other countries languages but a simple call to, well, anyone in any English speaking country could have helped these guys out quite a bit.

UPDATE: We've been had. Apparently, it's all just a witty promotional site for an LA-based agency called Kiwi.

Yes, we know that which is what makes this even more humorous.

Uh, Steve, I think you got snookered... But it's OK -- it's a hysterical site, so thanks! (Reminds me of the awesome lowbrow templates Kessels Kramer uses on their site.) I believe it's a drive to this site: http://www.kiwitogo.com/ which at a glance appears to be a legit design agency from New Zealand.

i doubt if it's a real company. i have looked their portfolio and the one for SKY SPY telecom is ridiculously hilarious.

Correction: that Kiwi Agency is based out of LA.

Hilarious. Don't miss the "Donate Your Eyes. Nothing Else" ad. http://www.finaliq.com/NAFban.htm

Maybe they used Babelfish's new "ESL to English" translation tool.... *snicker*

By some unfathomable happenstance, their editing skills are even worse than yours.

Written well not agency website is.
Check out McCann-Erickson's web site ... one of the best in the business positioning itself as "mental jelly fish." Yikes!

Also of note: you were had by an agency (KIWI, not "FinalIQ") that hasn't updated their own website since 2005, and doesn't know how to code PHP to at least make it *look* like the site is up to date.
