Senske Services ad makes it on "The Tonight Show."

| April 29, 2013

When staffers at Senske Services created an ad for tree and shrub pruning services, they had no idea that it would appear on national television. But this week they were stunned to learn that their newspaper insert made a brief appearance on "The Tonight Show."

On Monday night’s Headlines segment, Jay Leno poked fun at the factoid section of the insert which said, “Did you know… that trees are tall plants made of wood?” Leno, who apparently felt this fact was common knowledge, threw up his hands and exclaimed “Wow!” The audience responded with laughter and applause.

Senske management also got a chuckle out of the segment. As Senske’s Marketing Director Patt Mosely explains, “We’re huge fans of the Tonight Show and the newspaper insert served its purpose by encouraging homeowners to trim their trees in the early spring, so for us it’s a win-win.”
