Tweet of the Day – THE KILLERS’ Ronnie Shares His View on Potato Advertising


The Killers’ drummer believes praising Idaho potatoes on a license plate is too much

May 7, 2016

Advertisement is not something we occasionally see or hear or chose to pay attention to. For good or ill, it’s the whole world around us these days: on average, we see 247 advertising images per day, the research says. The Killers’ drummer Ronnie Vannucci has initiated a massive Twitter discussion on this issue by posting a photo of the license plate praising Idaho potatoes – “the Potatoes and the Potato Men from the home of the original Potato”, as one fan put it.

Ronnie’s comment above the image reads: “This guy gets it. I’m telling you, potatoes don’t get enough praise these days.” The Killers’ fans started actively contributing to the discussion by adding images of other hilarious or promotional plates. One fan even posted a picture of a plate with the inscription “Hot Fuss”, which is, in fact, the title of one of The Killers’ albums. Would you like to have one like that?
