Signs - The worst bagels ever

When I visited Sydney in January this year I saw this sign painted on the side wall of  Smoking Gun Bagels, a coffee shop in the suburb of Woolloomooloo near the city centre, at 129 Cathedral St.
In the days of social media when everyone posts food reviews, I assume someone rubbished their bagels and they cleverly decided to use this to call attention to their Coffee shop.
I thought it was brilliant marketing! What do you think?
More signs at Signs, signs.

  2. Aqui em Cascais, ao pé da praia, há um bar com um cartaz deste género que diz algo como: o pior atendimento, as piores piadas, a música mais horrível... está em inglês e a última linha diz que é humor britânico!
    Pode ser que funcione!
    Boa tarde :-)

  4. I am not a bagel eater but I think as advertising it works. People will really want to check that they are the 'worst'.

  8. Might as well laugh about those reviewers I suppose. If their bagels are as good as their sense of humor, they will be good.

    1. I think reviews are very subjective, so I'm glad they had a sense of humour about it. Thanks Sallie

  12. That sign is either negative advertising, or they sell a lot of sausage. Either way it is good sign.

  16. Quite clever of them to use a bad review in this way. There's so many "best of all" signs that at least this one is different. And if it really was only one guy on Facebook the baggels must be pretty good! Did you try them?
