A Noteworthy Spelling Experience

This is just funny, for so many reasons.

A couple of days ago I was watching television with my laptop on my lap when I got irritated by a spelling error on an advertisement. I usually manage to let spelling and grammatical errors slide right by me, but for some reason (probably red wine) this time I chose to react.

I sent an email to Downy, the manufacturer of the product, and simply said:

“Unstoppable has two p’s. It is infuriating to see it spelled incorrectly in your ads. Please change this.”

I didn’t expect a response but today, to my surprise, I received an email from them. Here is what they wrote:

This made me laugh out loud. Surely the writer cannot be serious! Corporate-speak has outdone itself at Downy.

I thought I should share this with you so that you can enjoy it as much as I did. You are also now made aware of the new word for a noteworthy scent experience.

No need to thank me.
