Shrine Side Advertising, the company that sells advertising space alongside high profile floral tributes, has issued a profit warning after a slowdown in celebrity deaths.
Analysts have revised their forecasts for the company, after the company found itself unable to promote any global brands to TV audiences, as the number of incidences or emotional incontience were limited. This meant fewer TV reporters were able to do pieces to camera next to any floral tributes, which in turn hit Shrine Side Advertising's revenue streams.
'It's been a tough year,' said CEO Malkie Murdoch, 'celebs aren't dying as much as the used to, as a result of rehab, and the media seems obsessed with foreign tragedies. As a result, the mawkish community has been denied a chance to grieve.'
