I had to laugh when I saw the teaser and then the segment for this on Channel 2's 11 O'Clock News. Anyone else see this? Last night featured "One Sunset" and "Ketchup". Ha ha ha!

    LA Eater (linking to Blogging.LA) did a piece on it already... I had a chuckle too, none of them are particularly well known for food, and even the "sexy" vibe/ambience is questionable.

      Yes, the inclusion of Ketchup had to be the work of someone's public relations company.

        Definitely marketing, look at the original source:

        I guess they aren't trying to be subtle. I'm sure there are paid stealth advertising shills here on chowhound, but they are probably less effective here than in other venues. I hate to see this stuff make the rounds, the advertisers will just point to it as proof of eyeballs.
