This is Why We Don’t Have Nothin’!

18 November 2008 13 Comments

Jamaican brothers are hittin’ the mainland and getting law degrees but then taking things one step too far by turning an ad for legal services into a No Limit album cover or at the very least a tacky party flyer. Nothing screams “victim of the diaspora” like the combination of his over-sized Jamaican flag belt buckle, Mercedes emblem, and the name “P’Ta Mon” itself. In fact, if you look closely, he couldn’t help but also rock a Jamaican flag necklace. The fact that the services listed on this ad must be his most popular (major drug charges leads the pack) puts the icing on the disgrace cake. One step forward, one step back.

    Hey there Thembi!

    This is really a shame…

    I thought it was a photoshop image as a little gag…but just knowing this is an actual advertisement….

    Honestly, those of us who are Americans really don’t understand why the non-Americans are so caught up in idolizing the most garish expressions of Americanized materialism…

    What do you mean “don’t have nuthin?” Dude’s got a Benz. He was able to afford it by saving money on advertising and letting uncle Ray-Ray make his flyer.

    P’Ta Mon is also a dentist.

    Thanks for sharing, Thembi. I was in need of an expungement and P’Ta Mon has a special for only $500, plus filing fees, of course. That could come in really handy.
