A Philadelphia business that ended up being the site of a press conference led by former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani released a new clothing line to commemorate the event.
Owned by Marie Siravo, the landscaping business has primarily dealt with plant and ground maintenance since 1992. However, the family-owned business was abruptly thrust into the political sphere when the company’s parking lot somehow ended up as the location of a press conference in which Giuliani spoke about the the Trump campaign’s intent to contest the alleged voter fraud in Pennsylvania.
Although it remains unclear how or why this press conference occurred in such a setting, it helped to launch Four Seasons Total Landscaping into the public eye. It also allowed for them to bank on the situation by creating and selling some politically satirical merchandise.
Boasting sly slogans such as “Lawn and Order” as well as “Make America Rake Again,” the apparel is as commemorative a product line as any royal wedding memorabilia. And while the event eventually benefitted the company, some of the initial feedback wasn’t so kind.
“We were honored to be asked to host a press conference at our facility,” the business said in a Facebook post. “We thank all of those that have shown support for our business and while we understand the negative comments, it saddens us that we have received such harsh judgement. Our team at Four Seasons would have proudly hosted any presidential candidate’s campaign at our business.”
Nevertheless, despite the negative commentary the business was able to sell out their new merchandise within days of its launch.
Now back for online orders, the apparel line includes not only T-shirts sporting the company’s logo as well as the aforementioned play-on-phrases, but also COVID-19-appropriate face masks.
