Florida Man April 7 (4/7)

Scott Fisher, owner of Gone Broke Gaming in Florida, defies a city ordinance that prevents him from showing inflatable characters outside his shop. A day after being told by the authorities to remove the 10-foot-tall Super Mario or face fines for every day remaining left as a business open, Friedrich’s future appears uncertain. He cites a law that prohibits business owners from installing portable displays like the once-forward giant character who communicates messages about their store products on behalf of the Fisher Games Company.

With a large inflatable Mario outside his shop, Fisher saw an increase in pedestrians. “It was as if someone had flipped a switch,” he said with excitement and relief as he recalled how many people have now stopped by to see what’s new in Nintendo games.

Fisher, the owner of Fisher’s Fun Home in Orlando, Florida, filed a federal lawsuit against Orange Park after they issued a decree prohibiting him from displaying the inflatable Mario. He argued that this law violates the First Amendment to the US Constitution by distinguishing between certain types of speech and harming business with low traffic where people don’t take their picture in the store because it has been replaced by another inflatable display for Christmas shoppers or passers-by.

I was told that the demolition of the old building drastically reduced the flow of clients.

The destruction of our previous location by a powerful hurricane lowered the numbers while increasing phone calls at the same time about where we were before it happened.
