This is where their campaign fails.

"Un bon Serge" is liek calling someone "un bon Jack" except they didn't want to use Jack because it's too anglicized. They went for a pure Quebecois name instead hoping it would catch on, but to this day people are still confused as to what it really means.

The "bon serge" guys actually had a commercial on CKMF or CKOI this summer explaining what i just said above. It really killed the joke for me when they felt they had to spoon feed teh punch line to the population.
