Douche of the Day: Redundant Sponsorships

Sure, congrats to Victory Gardens Theater for landing Com-Ed to sponsor their new space on Lincoln & Fullerton. But, really, need you advertise “Lighting by Com-Ed?” Naming rights go to corporations in so many ways; I’m amazed Victory Gardens even gave Com-Ed the choice on that form where you pick either “Lighting by Com-Ed” or “Insert Com-Ed Logo Here” or “The Adam Witt Center for Feline Literacy.” THE ENTIRE CITY IS LIT BY COM-ED. This is the corporate version of Welcome to Chicago, Richard M. Daley, Mayor. The gas on the fake stove for True West is Gas from People’s Gas. Water by Lake Michigan. Farts by Chipotle. Come on.
