In 2005, an auto-repair shop in Seattle shut its doorways and a gas station opened up in its residence. Like your run-of-the-mill gas station with an united convenience store, the Wallingford Chevron seemed like nothing out of the everyday in the beginning. Sitting in front of the accumulate was a usual, customizable clue that the auto-repair shop had used for advertising promotions and specials. Since taking over, the gas station had no use for the clue, as it had its own the pertinent terms and conditions of advertising.
Instead of removing the empty clue, the staff at the Wallingford Chevron got a little artistic and started posting up laughs and puns to cheer passersby. While the humor behind a lot of their laughs is reminiscent of the mawkish, slightly embarrassing dad laughs that the Internet seems to be full of these days, the public seemed to adore and accept these regular quips.
And thus, the Wallingford Sign has now come to life. Seattle Propane, the company behind this entertaining commodity, has even generated Facebook and Twitter sheets so that all their entertaining signals are available online for the rest of the world to interpret. In today’s world, most people are used to seeing signals with ads and promotions that specifically serve to enticement in business, so these entertaining signals are like a breath of fresh air for everyone.
