AccuQuote: My Fair Godmother?
Posted by Rosepixie on September 17, 2009
This is a banner ad that I’ve seen in all sorts of places online. It’s for AccuQuote, which is an insurance company.
So, the funny thing about this banner is why it caught my eye. I noticed it because of the fairy. I have no idea how long I’ve been seeing this ad, but I started noticing it while I was reading the book My Fair Godmother. Check out the cover, below, and you’ll see why.
Other than the fact that the book cover fairy has pink hair while the banner ad fairy is blond, it’s the same image! Even the house roof is the same! This isn’t actually a good parallel for AccuQuote, either, since the fairy this represents in the book is awful at granting wishes and pretty much makes the lives of everyone she meets miserable. Not that I was looking for life insurance anyway, but if I was, I wouldn’t buy it from a place with a fairy who messes everything up and has a chronic problem with listening as the star of their ads!
