The Disturbing Results of Embassy Suites' 'Do Not Disturb' Sign Contest
Embassy Suites has announced the five winners of last year's "Do Not Disturb" sign design contest, and, if this was the best of the lot, we imagine that the other 7,000-plus entries must have been truly and excruciatingly unfunny.
The winners, who came up with slogans like, "Aww Mom, just five more minutes. Please?" and "Shh... I'm hatching a plan to bust some little soaps out of here," receive a three-night stay at select Embassy Suites locations and, beginning March 5, will see their designs displayed at the hotelier's 190 properties.
But not all of the winning slogans are as embarrassingly childish for a grown adult to hang on his or her door as "I've built a pillow fort and I am not opening the door for anybody!" Clever selections include, "Pillow fight in progress" and "There are days when I wish I could wear this around my neck," which is what we guess the Embassy Suites marketing team was thinking when they came up with this contest.
Because out of all these creations, we still prefer Embassy Suites' own variation on the "Do Not Disturb Sign": "There's a good reason for you NOT to knock right now."
