Why do gyms and car dealerships always have balloons all over the place? I understand that every day is miraculous celebration of some "last chance" sale, however, balloons might not be the way to get adults excited about such. As a matter of fact, every time I see balloons in my gym (which is daily), I wonder how many more family days they could possibly organize.

I'd challenge you gym and car salesmen to come up with something a bit more relevant. Personally, I think girls would get excited about flowers and us guys would like...girls. So go with the flowers.
