your local union of pushin' around a lotta little old ladies from flarida

Ah, holy hell. Via Boing Boing, here's an old ad for AFSCME, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. Either this is an alternate audio take from the original ad in the late '70s - early '80s (I'm a bit skeptical) or someone's done a good job of reproducing the recording tech from the era (slightly disappointing but way more likely). Whichever it is, this is hilarious and completely aurally obscene. Turn the volume low or plug in some headphones if you're at work. Or you'll likely end up fired. Unless you're in a union.

That was awesome. It sounds like something off of a Sopranos episode.

I am proud to say that this union ad was probably produced and re-looped by someone from I.A.T.S.E., which happens to be my union.

Support your local.

that was bloody brilliant!

i think it should be useful in bargaining - it would certainly cut through the crap in a big fuckin hurry .... sending to my union office now.
