Ad Lib / Logic

About some ‘logic’ in an @bookingcom ad.

Where this, commonly well-regarded, travel site sent some spam: “Umbrella in hand, J, it’s raining deals!”
Which may or may not be true, but

  • If it’s deals that it’s raining, I wouldn’t necessarily want to shrug them off with an umbrella
  • If it’s deals, why associate them with bad weather which I may want to escape, through the deals
  • Can’t the deals be collected on some company web site or so; why should it rain into my Inbox?

So, methinks the ad is a wide-net phishing run. Right ..?

Oh, and:
