Commuters Attacked by Rampants 'Ad-Nouncements'

Yesterday, it was sex in advertising that came in a pair. Today, it's transportation announcement advertising. We'll call it ad-nouncevertising. Following Alaska Airlines forcing a captive plane load of passengers to listen to flight attendant-read Bank of America Visa ads, commuters passing through Penn station this morning were subjected to promotional announcements for the Belmont Stakes. Is there no peace, I ask? Is there no f'ing peace? Not that bleary eyed Penn station commuters are would even hear such announcements before they had their morning shoot up of Starbucks.

I pretty much fly Alaska exclusively (I live in Anchorage) and they've been advertising credit cards for a while now (at least a year mabye more). Maybe it's different when it's their own credit card.
