Market indices were plussing, stats were booming. Organ inventories were super stoked. An irrational exuberance gripped Isthmian rentier circles, prompting Montmorency XIV to proclaim an unpresidented “velvetizing of the manacles.”
The announcement lit up the west wing of the Merlot Palace. Consulting intently with itself, the precedential wall of advisors hit upon the expedient of asking XIV what to do. He suggested handing the slogan to his agency to work up an idea.
HPF Advertising, famous for its MIGA campaign, created the Adopt a Ding promotion. A meme blitzkrieg from HPF Communications lobbied patricians to visit a kindness on a juvenile ding for the duration of “thrice a score of days.”
The mansion district leapt languidly to the charge, ever keen for a distraction. Upon expiry of the relaxation it seemed as if its purpose had been served. Future organ donors basked in their brief window for selfies next to important persons. The latter corresponded with good feelings about themselves. A question hangs in the air then: Why do historians now utter “Adopt a Ding campaign” and “infamous” in the same breath?
