UPDATE: Apparently someone is impersonating the Wissam Fares with this profile. Based on a comment by fellow blogger Elie on Blog Baladi. 

I was pretty shocked to see this facebook ad. I was intrigued. Could it be some interesting social media campaign? I clicked. It landed on a personal profile as you can see. The guy has been in the game ( registered FB user ) since 2010. Hence, most probably he is following the Lara Kay path, and trying to get some extra attention, or is just plain bored and playing with facebook advertising.

 

For those of you who can not understand Lebanese slang this ad says: “I am in Beirut now and I want a girl to spit in my face … and I am not kidding”.

 

In any case for a marketer, especially one that works in social media, such occurrences really put an interesting perspective  into our industry. Traditional billboards are overtaken by people posting Birthday wishes and love messages, while on Facebook, Sayfco ads come hand in hand by a guy who wants to find a girl to spit on his face. And I suspect, since facebook can’t really filter out Lebanese slag his ad got approved.

 

This definitely beats politicians promoting their facebook pages. Have you seen weirder Facebook ads? I am dying to know!

    You have to throw the collected dirt from the container in the garbage can in
    your backyard or outside your house to prevent the dust and dirt
    from getting back into your house. The attachments and unique design of the
    Bissell let you keep your home free of allergens and pet hair.
    Of course, because a vacuum appliance is very important in our lives, we must do
    all we can to make sure that service continues for a longer period
    of time.
