'Chronicle' wedding ad was brilliant



While sifting through your paper May 8, I read with pleasure the advertisement announcing the "wedding" of Karen Bell to her newly purchased automobile.

This is probably the most creative ad I have ever read in any newspaper, and I would like to commend the genius or geniuses who came up with this one.

When I first glanced at the ad, I thought it was a bridal picture, but something seemed out of whack with a car lurking in the background.

I began reading and soon was gripped by it all. The picture was great, and the writing was excellent. ...

A tip of the hat to Miss Bell, the automobile and all those who participated in the ceremony, and especially the one who dreamed this one up. ...
