Could this be the strangest attempt yet to capitalize on the Writers Guild strike?
From an ad in today’s Variety:
“As the largest volume collateral lender in Beverly Hills for 20 years, I want to take this pportunity to help bridge this troublesome financial time for all industry workers. I’m extending reduced loan rates on all fine jewelry and art.”
Yeah, because the striking scribes and out-of-work below-the-liners who don’t know where their next paycheck is coming from are knee-deep in “fine jewelry and art.”
Wait, there’s more:
“And as gold and diamonds values have recently skyrocketed I will also purchase items at top dollar.”
Time to raid your closets, WGA, SAG, DGA, IA and Teamster members! The pawn brokers at “The Dina Collection” will help you out… well, while purchasing all of your family heirlooms.
