FirstEnergy responded to AEP's lemonade ad by setting up their own special website and launching a print and radio campaign. Yeah, yeah, I know li'l CoalFella said FirstEnergy had no plans to respond, as recently as Tuesday, however it appears that we have inspired him with our cheerful singing! FirstEnergy also says that they have no plans for a TV commercial at this time (they're still probably trying to convince Tony the Trickster to play the mob boss).
So anyhow, go visit FirstEnergy's little website, www.forelectricsavings.com Too bad, forreliablepower.com was already taken, but at least they're sticking with their "for" theme. What's next? formanyyearsofpayingforourdeadpathproject.com? I can't wait!
Li'l CoalFella's new website has all kinds of fun stuff on it. Hear the bitchy-sounding radio commercials, email the PUCO, or sign li'l CoalFella's petition! Remember way back when li'l CoalFella's PEAT group had a petition on their website? It was hard, but I resisted signing it with made-up names. Not so for a bunch of other people, or so I hear. So, have fun everybody! Perhaps we should initiate a contest for the most creative made-up name that gets published on li'l CoalFella's petition?
Ironically, li'l CoalFella and his FirstEnergy co-workers now want you to "Stand up and fight!" after years of trying to get you to sit down and shut up about their PATH project. Isn't that refreshing? I'm glad they've finally seen the light and picked up a few pointers from us over the years.
Keep singing! Perhaps we'll see a TV commercial soon...
