The other day, a Housing Complex tipster was watching "Law & Order" reruns on TNT, and took note of some local advertising: A two-minute-long PSA for Adams Morgan, complete with low, pulsing techno music.
The Adams Morgan Business Improvement District had it filmed in January of last year and has since run it on arrival kiosks at Reagan and Dulles Airports, and just signed a contract for it to run as an in-flight video on Virgin Airlines.
You'll see a lot of familiar faces belonging to people who don't get along with each other well at all, including Madam's Organ's Bill Duggan, with the inexplicable comment: "We know how to put the F in Fun." You sure do, Adams Morgan!
