I heard it. Only a museum would be offended. It's in the same style as the TV ad, I believe there is a sky diving one.

TV Ad -> Sky diving, the description of the radio ad is accurate and would have the same talking point at the end.

Found it!
For $5: "There were dinosaurs...and then there weren't. Okay then...exit through the gift shop..." :twisted:

On CBC radio:
They air the ad. After that, the C.E.O. of a museum in BC explains why she is so angry about the ad: http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1134289987686/

Yeah, that's the one! Oh well, I'll continue to eat $1 Big Macs while they last. :-)

Wow... that museum lady has an incredibly large ego and just as fragile too.

Let's become outraged and hope McD's makes a fat donation to a museum

How about those limo drivers? Are they offended by the idea of collecting $5 for driving a whole half a block or less?
I'm just guessing here, but I think the ones laughing the hardest are the pilots of the sky diving planes. :twisted:

Ridiculous. In this day and age, there's always someone who is/can get offended about anything. She just wanted her 15 minutes of fame. Check the box....She managed to get some PR for her Exploration Place museum.
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

& McDonald's benefited too. A free plug on a station that normally doesn't do radio ads.
