A.I. Generated Awful Funeral Marketing Ideas

I used an A.I. (artificial intelligence) engine to generate purposefully bad marketing ideas for funeral homes. Here are five of the worst examples!

1) Corporate funerals- Drive the lowered hearse around with all four doors open. Embrace weird, talk to everyone you see while making strange noises.

2) Put a dumpster in front of your building to collect bodies for drag racing.

3) Throw a parade every time we pick up an old body and throw it into the grave.

4) Place life-sized cutouts of dead people in urinals. Label them a specific gender and ask men to visit Mr.Smith.

5) Get a truck, plant an apple tree in the bed of it. Ask for employee donations for breast cancer research. Sell something.
Well… those are awful. Maybe we SHOULD be worried about all this A.I. stuff.
